It's always a good idea to check your answers and ask any questions about what is confusing to you.
1. The verb "gustar" will be easier if you learn the English meaning as "to be pleasing" for then you'll understand why the "a" which states TO WHOM something is pleasing. The answer should be then:
A la familia....(the rest is fine)
2. There is the required "a" again but there is no "a" AFTER gustar. = A la familia les gusta acompar...
3. I suppose you can keep "tienes" although if you want to refer to the family, it would be "tienen" (if they don't have)
5. Look closely at the question to see "AL padre" for the answer is = Al padre...
6. A los hermanos... (see what trouble "gustar" can cause if you translate it as "to like" rather than "to be pleasing to...?"
7. The question asks "what does that person like to DO?" so the answer is =
A esta persona le gusta jugar al béisbol OR A esta persona le gusta llevar... (I prefer the first) typo with btes = bates
8. What happens if he doesn't bring those things? = Si no lleva estas cosas no puede jugar al béisbol.
9. It's not the person telling the story who talks but his brother. - Su hermano habla...
If I didn't mention any of the answers, it's because they are perfect!
Thank you for all your help.Thank you for your patience too Could you recheck this?
I don't understand about who talks much-my number 10 but I think you put it at #9You said it was the brother not the person but I'm confused why it states me and then habla-doesn't "me" refer to "I" but I know habla refers to him-that's here I'm confused, I think
Doesn't this translate to the persona talking , not the brother?
Siempre me habla mucho antes de dormir.
Sorry, I DID write #9 but it WAS #10.
Question: Who talks a lot before going to sleep.
Text: Mi hermano y yo dormimos en la misma tiendaº. Siempre me habla mucho antes de dormir. = Mi brother and I sleep in the same tent. He always talks to me a lot before sleeping.
Answer: El hermano (OR Su hermano) habla mucho antes de dormir.
TRANSLATION OF THE PASSAGE:
My family and I like to spend time outdoors. When we have time, we leave the house and go to camp in the mountains or near a lake. It is important to bring the things necessary when going to camp because if you don't have what you need, you can have a big problem.
We always bring many things that we plan we are going to need. I always want to bring bags and things to use to play sports with because if there is time, we like to play sports when we camp.My dad likes to fish and my brothers like to canoe in the lake. But I like to play baseball more. I bring my gloves, bats, and bags. If I don't bring them, I cannot play.
When we go to bed, we sleep in sleeping bags under the stars. It is very fin. My brother and I sleep in the same tent. I always talk a lot before I go to sleep. It is good because I like to spend time with my family because the next day we don't have to get up early.
