    Nope! I've lost all the key holes
    Doesn't that mean you just have to do all the exercises all over again?

    It took me nearly all of my allowed attempts to do it :mad: It's really computerised- like the Welsh Google Translate voice!!



    Yeah, it is. Hopefully they'll manage to develop a proper version soon!!



    Probably because Portuguese is the Beta version too!
    might look at the portugese on Duolingo....hopefully it will all come flooding back

    Yeah the passive is formed with the correct conjugation of être plus the past participle of the verb.
    Feel free to ask any more grammar questions, I love grammar, I find it to be the easiest part of learning languages (I'm always told how weird this makes me but on here it's surprisingly common )
    Thanks for the help!
    I've covered lots of grammar (nearly all tenses) using About.com, but here I find people have the best explanations if I come unstuck!
    I like grammar too! I covered it for Italian before I learnt vocab.

    aha, j'ai pense 'pouvoir' dans le condtional - pourrais. Suppose I could say that with the translation being Maybe/Perhaps, I will get it later....

    I lost my keyholes for Spanish to skip the levels because I found her voice hard to understand, it just means you have to do each lesson individually instead of skipping.

    Given some of the verbs:eek: I've just found in the test-out-of German present tense exercise, this may not be a reflection on your level.

    EDIT: actually I checked through the exercises leading up to it, and it turns out a simpler verb was taught, but the test accepted both a complicated one and the simple one.

    Some variations though

    Eg I don't have anything and I have nothing are the same

    I found a mistake in this...

    They're calling the Plu Perfect the Past Perfect or is that right in Spanish?
    They mean same thing.

    I see :ahee:

    Pensé que fue el past Perfect = 'hablé' (pero es Preterite) y Plu-Perfect = 'había hablado'...

    Ah... Hablé, hablaba, había hablado...

    I'm confident with conjugations now...

    Yeah, it is also called the past perfect (which takes the past tense of have) by analogy of the present perfect (which takes the present tense of have). And it's good to hear that you're confident with them now!
