"He never finds his car."
Translation:Él nunca encuentra su coche.
Encuentra--to meet, to encounter, to find. Haller--to find, to discover, to locate. In this sentence I responded " el nunca halla" and was wrong with a comment to the effect to not confuse encuentra and halla. Can anyone explain the difference or preference between the two spanish words to me?
I was told that "nunca" means never whereas "jamás" means never ever. Basically, the latter is stronger, so will only be uses in certain instances. I have no idea why it can't be used here or when it would be considered right, but I think "nunca" will most often be correct as "jamás" is more definite. Therefore I only use "jamás" if I have to, or if I'm absolutely certain that it is correct.
