is this the only possible placement of "nem"? What if I want to emphasise that she is not eating, as opposed to the fact that it is not next to the hotel that she is eating? Could you say " Az idős egyiptomi nő a drága szálloda mellett nem eszik" ?
Yes, you nailed it!
i wrote oreg and got it wrong. Any help there please? Doesn't oreg mean old? Is oreg not PC?
No, "régi" is used to describe old things. I got caught on that one too.
