    Well done! Just a few things. If you don't know how to put accent marks (instead of hyphens) on letters, I need to know 2 things. 1) Do you have a Mac or a PC and 2) Do you have Windows or not? Studying Spanish, it is essential that you learn how to do the accents on a computer and that you put them where they belong.

    Next time, if you could please put the answers WITH the item, my old eyes will have less trouble. It is very difficult for me to slide up and down, etc. Therefore I did all your homework first and then I had the answers with yours.

    It is well nigh impossible for me to read those diamond-shaped ?'s!

    Here are the few things:
    In J, the last one requires an accent mark on "Tú" before viniste.

    In K, you skipped the 2nd one: Carmen y yo "dijimos"

    In D it would have been impossible to decide Preterit or Imperfect if your teacher had not given the English cue for the Imperfect. Sometimes ONLY the speaker (or writer) an decide what s/he has in mind!
