Can you do the can can in Canada, or will a Mountie eating canteloupe candy canter up to you and tell you to can it?
it's a matter of accent. Spanish from Spain is "yo", Spanish from Latin America is often "jo" or and intermediate sound like that of French "je"
So can Americans use any of those accents when speaking Spanish in the United States? Or should they develop their own accent? Or is there already an accent set in place for speakers of American Spanish to use?
Occasionally I listen to Latino music stations La Mega 97.9 and X96.3 in New York City; I hear both pronunciations "jaw" and "yaw" for "yo"
I am a native Spanish speaker and "I may" would be translated, for example in the sentence "i may be able to do it" "puede que sea capaz de hacerlo" or even a bit more hard to understand (and a bit reiterative, but still working) "puede que pueda hacerlo". So, in this Duolingo is okay. it is the same verb, true, but different verbal tense.
If you use the subjunctive tense: yo pueda
Possibly if you add maybe, like quizás pueda yo. Or tal vez pueda.
But yo puedo = I can
When is yo actually used? I mean why not use the yo form of the verb all the time. For example. Would native speakers say yo corro or would they just say corro
How many cans can a canner can if a canner can can cans?Say this three times fast!
"I am able" would be "Soy habil" or "Soy capaz" and is a verb and an adjective, with a different meaning, along the lines of "I am handy." Poder means "I can" or "I am able to" and usually relates to a specific task. "Poder" is often followed by another infinitive, like "hacer" "Puedo hacerlo" = I can do it.
Because In English the infinitive is given by 'to' the Spanish infinitives are: AR- ER- IR- When you translate into Spanish ‘I am able work’ you will say: ‘Yo puedo trabajo’ and what you want to say is: I am able to work. Translation: “Yo puedo trabajar”
I hope this will help.
Is it funny that i could complain in Spanish before i could actually speak? (•.•)/
