    i thought the exam was quite easy apart from that 10 mark question on emotions, did i hear the girl say her grandma bought a moterbike!

    The last question was impposible as usual for me, the one abouts the sports center.

    A* will probably be about 42/50, but last year it was 36/50

    I did it. Extremely easy the first couple were, but then it started to go downhill when I did the box ticking ones. I knew I got two of the last question right because my teacher, who is a crazy Spaniard, did the exam as well when we were doing it, and we checked our answers (after handing it in, of course)

    The answers for the last one btw were

    1) Can't remember
    2) Mayor refused to meet them
    3) A healthier life
    -pause-
    4) They don't pay taxes
    5) The majority support them.

    I also found the 10 marker tricky, but I probably got 6/7. Most of the descriptions were similar, and I also knew all the meanings and what were the people speaking about, but I just couldn't work it out.

    Ah well, Spanish Reading tomorrow.

    Is anyone else for the writing plan on using the Future Perfect, the Conditional Perfect and Subjunctive? And I still don't understand the differences between perfect and preterite.

    Yes, so she was surprised! That was okay, I just got confused whether they wanted you to say how the person talking was feeling, or how the person the person was talking about was feeling...

    Yes, it was okay apart from the ticking boxes ones. Damn, I thought I'd got the last page all right, meh...

    Hah, we've never done the future perfect etc. I'm sticking with simple present, preterite, imperfect and future. Preterite is like, "I went..." whereas imperfect is "I was going"....Oh damn, you said perfect...

    I tried to translate that and pienso que tu quieres algunas ayudas sobre los tensos espanoles.

    Present: x does something (B Grade)
    Preterite: x did something (B Grade)
    Future: x will do something (B Grade)

    Imperfect: x was something (A grade)

    Perfect: x has done something (A* grade)
    Conditional: x would do something (A* grade)
    Pluperfect: x had done something (A* grade)

    Future perfect: x will have done something (A-Level)
    Conditional: x would have done something (A-Level)

    Puedes encontrar mas informacion en el Internet, por ejemplo puedes buscar en Google para "Spanish Verb Tenses" etc

    Saludos

    Accents are required if there are two words which are spelt the same and can only be differentiated with an accent, and is required with verbs in the preterite and present. e.g. ar verbs - hablo can be I speak or he/she/it spoke. You need an accent on the o to make it preterite.
