Translation:The professor gave us an extension.
should the 's' of nos be prounced. I don't hear it pronounced here. How do you tell the difference (in pronounciation) of ella no dio una extensión and ella nos dio una extensión
Is it just my imagination that sometimes third person preterite has an accent and sometimes it doesn't? I want to put and accent on dio. I'm not understanding something important here. Help?
It is not your imagination. When the verb is regular, it takes an accent, 3rd sing preterite = habló. This is to distinguish it from hablo = I talk. When the verb is irregular and is not the same as the first or third person sing. present tense, then there is no accent because it is not necessary to distinguish the two words. Tuve, tuvo, fui, fue, estuve, estuvo, etc. They do this to mess with us learners of Spanish :-).
Thanks for this link. I'll be singing this. Will also watch more Senor Jordan videos.
The professor extended the due date of the students' assignment; he gave them an extension.
The tense is preterite (past) - gave; third person. DL does not include an accent on the "o" in dio. Why not?
Because dar has an irregular preterite form which does not carry an accent
Idk either and im a spanish speaker im thinking it might be a (Regleta o idk duolingo is bipolar xd
