Translation:You are going to love the Mexican beaches.
If it was 'you', shouldn't the verb be 'vas' and not the ella/ellos/ustedes form 'van'? I wrote They are going to love the beaches of Mexico.
I have a lot to learn, since I would never have written "Te van a encantar..."
I wrote " You are going to love the beaches of Mexico", but it was market wrong and the correct solution is - "You are going to love the beaches in Mexico". Why 'de' is translated to 'in'? I don't understand..
Not in 2019. Mexico's beaches is literally correct, Mexican beaches is not. I am troubled by the difficulty occasioned in using English in this course; not a feature of the other three that I attempt!
I also wrote "the beaches of Mexico". Not being a native english speaker, i would have appreciated it if it would have been approved (perhaps even with a correction). I am trying to learn Spanish here, not English
I figured someone would have the same question as me. I wonder if it's because van a(going to) as the verb is acting upon te(you) by las playas(the beaches). Since "beaches" is plural so goes the plural conjugation of "going to".
That is my only guess that I can think of.
Love was marked wrong. The correction was "adore," which is not an option for encantar on hover.
With "encantar" (as with "gustar" and verbs like it), we are not literally saying that somebody "loves" something, but rather that something "is delightful/enchanting to" somebody.
"The beaches of Mexico" is the subject, and they are going to be delightful/enchanting to "you."
To you = Te
are going to be enchanting = van a encantar
the beaches of Mexico = las playas de México.
(All this gives us "You are going to love the beaches of Mexico" in English.)
The main verb (van) agrees with the subject (playas), and the indirect object pronoun (te) reflects who is being enchanted.
Studyspanish.com has a unit that covers object pronouns and verbs like "gustar": Grammar Unit Four.
'You are going to love the beaches of Mexico' was counted incorrect. Apparently, they wanted 'You are going to love the Mexican beaches.'
Thanks. This has been explained to me before and I still keep on getting it wrong.
