What is wrong with saying MUCH instead of "a lot." I used "a lot" for a while when I saw duolingo was using it but decided to use the correct vocabulary inserting "much" and it said I was wrong and had to use "a lot". As far as I'm concerned, using "much" is better English than "a lot".
nothing is wrong with this. duo doesn't recognize it because... they're not on their job. the favor the colloquial expression over the more formal. perhaps there's an emphasis on helping people to speak in a more vernacular way. this does not help the more martinet of us (like me) and it certainly doesn't help to rule these answers out. At the same time, many/most of the accepted answers were probably accepted by consensus since Duo is a wiki project.
I think leo is the verb form for I (yo), but when it placed after need (necesito) and want (quiero) it used its original form which is leer.
I read a book. - yo leo un libro.
I need to read a book. - yo necesito leer un libro.
I hope you understand. But I'm not an expert myself, so please correct me if I'm wrong.
yes here it is conjugated. First person singular to be exact. 'leo' means 'I read' review the Intro Skill to see this in action. https://www.duolingo.com/skill/es/Intro/tips
'leer' is an infinitive (el infinitivo ) and is the most basic form of a Spanish verb. Verbs in the infinitive form are not conjugated and do not indicate anything about who is performing an action or at what point in time the action is taking place. • In English, infinitive verbs are preceded by the word 'to', as in 'to speak', 'to read', or 'to write'. • In Spanish, infinitives are only one word and end in either -ar, -er, or -ir, as in 'hablar', 'comer' y 'vivir'.
