    Default El verano pasado fui a....

    Hi my brother has a homework, I know a little bit spanish, but I forgot past tense and this small paragraph should be written in past tense, I think "preterito indefinido" . Can someone help me and write a small paragraph for a boy at 12 years old?

    Hi there !!! For the benefit of your brother and entirely for his own good ask him to give it a try and then we can help him brush the paragraph up. I suggest trying to write a short paragraph about palce he actually went to last summer. Give him encouragement and confidence.. tell him he can do it ...

    Best regards

    Wally, in case you dont know the tense he has to use: past simple.

    For example:

    Last year I went to Spain and drank wine.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    I know he has to use past simple tense, but think about a child at 12 years old. He doesn't have any relation with spanish, he can just say a little basic common sentences. He can't write anything in past tense. That's why I want help from anyone. So if somebody can write a small little 5 or 6 sentences for it, I will be very happy for that.

    Wally I'm sure your brother is more capable than you give him credit for. Specially if he´s taking Spanish at school. Again, I suggest that he give his homework a try and then we help him with the necessary corrections. He will learn more if you just guide him instead of making the homework for him. He´s not expected to write Spanish like Cervantes, but he's expected to make an effort to write at his own level.

    Sorry, we do not do homework . We always help but don't do the work for anybody. Why? Because this does not help anybody! Especially if your brother is a child. it will not help him in any way if we do his work for him.
    He has to learn he has to do the work himself in life and not expect others to do it for him!
