    Okay

    How was my.infinitive a noun though?

    I don't want to frighten/scare you?
    Um.... "Conocerte es amarte", lol it's only an example, uh.
    your infinitive wasn't a noun!!! I was just telling u when it was required to attach pronouns to verbs.

    Ahahah I'm guessing you typed something like Goigle Translate is my friend when the language you speak isn't mine, except "mine" was understood as "a place where you mine minerals" rather than "of me".

    When do we attach the pronoun to the infinitive?

    Thanks
    If you can't get your head round the noun thing, just remember that pronouns cannot precede the infinitive alone in Spanish, so just always attach it.

    Okay, I am confused about alcuno and nessuno in Italian. Which do we use in a negative sentence? I've just seen this sentence on DuoLingo Io non ho alcuna famiglia, where in Spanish, I would have used the double negative Yo no tengo ninguna familia. How is nessuno used then?

    EDIT: Another case: I was told to click all the correct translations for There is no answer and there was Non c'è nessuna risposta and Non c'è alcuna risposta. Following the above example, I only picked alcuna but they said that both alcuna and nessuna are right. Why?

    Hey guys - any tips on how to learn French & Spanish to an A* GCSE Standard in one year?
    Cheers
    Hi! I don't know what your level of French or Spanish is at the minute, but anyway, if you have the basic knowledge:
    First I would recommend learning the 4 main tenses. (present, past, imperfect, future) Knowing these will allow to understand readings better and to write a good controlled assessment!
    Next I would simply learn vocab for the various sections on the course, I'm not sure if there is a definitive list of what can be covered, but I'd be sure you could find a list of vocab for the environment, social problems, family etc... online. In fact, GCSE Bitesize is the place to go.
    For orals, repeat them over and over, learn the content in advance and leave yourself a good length of time for practice ones. I'm not sure if you're teaching yourself or what, so you may be able to get a teacher yo proofread it, or of course anyone on here!
    Writings are similar and you should have a good variety of tenses, as well as synonyms and idioms, which you can find online. It's up to you how to learn it! (again we can help check!)
    Leave yourself plenty of time to prepare for the exams, I did all of the French reading past papers and listening ones too and it really helped as you get a good feel for the exams and spot recurring vocab.
    You can pick up many other grammar points as you go along.
    If you have a natural aptitude for languages then it should be no hassle.
    Hope this helped!

    Yep, that would be about right!

    Did you check his other posts?

    I knew I recognised the name- this is a guy who claims he wouldn't give CPR to a fellow male.:unimpressed:

    He's an outright troll, or a total and utter waste of oxygen.

    It can certainly buy you grades, but never intelligence or critical thinking skills. In fact, they're probably more likely to pick up The Scum and the Daily Fail and swallow.

    I'm here again. I'm often confuse in the usage of the verbs 'take' and 'bring'. Can anyone give me examples to learn the handling of these verbs, please?
