You're right and this I suppose is an issue with drilling. The translation drills and some of the others really aren't in context, I think if it were just a formal conversation it would be a lot easier.iguanamon wrote:Context serves to help figure out which one is which.
It seems to me that a sentence with a lot of object pronouns in it relies heavily on context and without it, it becomes very confusing very quickly.
This is why I've made an Anki deck, I've written sentences I'd actually use, some with my kids (so informal), some are where I'm a teacher talking to my class, so both of these would use Os. Some I've made so I'm talking to a policeman or government official, but because I made the cards I know the context and drilling them is much easier.
So for example for this card I'm talking to my kids about their father...
Front: Don't either of you tell him I told you.
Back: No le digáis que os lo he dicho
I have no problem answering these, I'm still a bit slow so I'll just keep practicing until I get more automatic. Hopefully then I can complete the FSI lesson and move on.
Thank you that really means a lot coming from someone who already made this journeyiguanamon wrote:It's a pleasure following your progress, Bex. Your work with FSI is really helping to advance your Spanish!
