Two language questions by Avanzado 2 students

January 31, 2013

I would like to share with you two interesting questions: one posed by Ana & Pablo, in the Avanzado 2 Lunes group, and another posed today by Josemaría, in the other Av2 group.

  • The first question is, when do we use “taste(s)” as a noun, meaning instead of “likes & dislikes”?
  • The second is about the language in audio 4.10, why is “before I went” (a gerund is also possible, “before going”) in the past simple in this sentence, “This morning started badly because I needed to make a doctor’s appointment before I went to work, but the surgery was engaged for half an hour.”

I will edit this message in a few days, to include the answers. If you know the answers, you’re welcome to post here, or if you’re coming to class, to tell us in class!
