  1. My first target language is English and then French. In English I'm pretty advanced, but my grammar is giving me trouble. I have many problems with past participle tenses. Also adverbs, God adverbs are tough! I'm a writer and my desire is to write in English, but for this I need perfect grammar. In French I'm a newbie but I've found it quite easy because of its similarity with Spanish, however French pronunciation is hard. I already know a lot of words and phrases, but when I watch French movies I don't get one single word. They speak very fast and with this gorgeous accent that I simply can't understand. When I watch these French movies I constantly think that I'll never be able to learn it.
  2. No! Google translator is terrible, those transaltions sometimes don't make any sense. It's impossible to get a good translation from Google, and even if you paid a lot of money for a translation software it will always need your interaction for the text to make perfect sense. I wouldn't recommend anyone to use Google as a translator, it's not reliable.
  3. Can someone help me with how to conjugate verbs when you use “didn’t”? I usually always make mistakes with this word, “She didn’t knew he was coming.” Please explain me because I get confused. But also explain me why, don't just give the correct word I can fix that with software, I want to understand why using present tense verbs when I always use "didn't" to express something is in the past.
  4. 1. I will drive = Yo conduciré 2. I would drive = Yo conduciría 3. I could drive = Yo podría conducir 4. I should drive = Yo debería conducir 5. I will have driven = Yo lo habré conducido 6. I would have driven = Yo habría conducido 7. I could have driven = Yo podría haber conducido or Yo pude haber conducido 8. I should have driven = Yo debí de haber conducido or you can skip the “de” but it sounds less natural 9. I will be driving = Yo estaré conduciendo 10. I would be driving = Yo estaría conduciendo 11. I could be driving = Yo podría estar conduciendo 12. I should be driving = Yo debería estar conduciendo Number five sounds kind of weird though, don't like how it sounds with this verb. There are many other better verbs to learn this. Anyways, hope this helps.
  5. God I’m in the same situation. I’m learning French now and I’m taking online classes, but was thinking in attending regular classes. Online learning has many advantages because you go at your own pace and you choose your schedule, they’re less expensive and all that. But, I guess that some online advantages also are disadvantages, at least for me. I guess I need to be pushed a bit!
  6. Hey everyone, my name is Claudia and I’m from Mexico. I just found about this forum and I’m pretty excited. I have an obsession about learning languages, but I want to be fluent. I speak English pretty well, but I want to learn it at a native level. I love writing, but can’t do it with my grammar. So, I’m looking to improve my grammar, I want to meet grammar Nazis who can help me with this! I’m also studying French but I’m a newbie. Spanish is my mother’s tongue and I would love to help anyone that is interested. Well, guess this is all for now, hope to meet you all soon!
