"It's not good to smoke."
Translation:No es bueno fumar.
Could someone comment on the placement of the adjective "bueno"? I placed it after the verb because I wasn't sure of the noun. Before a noun "bueno" changes to "bien", "buen" and after a noun "bueno"...
There is no noun in this sentence.
Either of these two sentences is correct in Spanish:
- No es bueno fumar.
- Fumar no es bueno.
Thanks I didn't think there was a noun but I thought maybe a noun was implied and I was missing it. I made it more difficult than was necessary so I appreciate your straight forward response.
Hi, Nonie, I wanted to clear up one thing that may be confusing you. Bien is an adverb (well, fine, ok), not a form of the adjective bueno. Bien will be used to modify verbs (Ella baila bien. Estoy bien. Hablan español muy bien.) It has only the one form, unlike bueno, which has buen/o/a/os/as.
