Spanish 2

Explain the difference in meaning between these two sentences:
1. Alberto oyo la musica de la fiesta y salio de casa.
2. Alberto oia la musica de la fiesta cuando salio de casa.

There are accents but I can't put them on here. I'm pretty sure the sentences mean 1. Alberto heard the music from the party and went home. 2. Alberto heard music from the party when he left home.
I answered that they are different because he heard the music at different times, but my teacher said that was wrong so if somebody who knows Spanish could help me I would really appreciate it! Thanks.

  5. Hi there.

    I am a Spanish Native speaker. I will be glad to explain this to you.

    The first one is actually saying that Alberto heard music from the party and went outside his house. Think about this, when Alberto heard the music he could have gotten curious and went outside to hear it.
    Basically, this is a past tense event.

    The second one is actually saying that Alberto was listening to the music when he went outside his house.

    Think about the tense. "Oyo" and "Oía".

    For example:

    "El oyo que su mamá le grito." [He heard that his mom yelled at him.]

    "El oia que su mamá le gritaba." [He was hearing that his mom was yelling at him.]

    I hope this makes it a bit clear to you.

    Thank you for your question and keep up the good work.
