I put "Tha flat anns an Spainn agam." and it was marked wrong. Is there a word-order rule we haven't learned yet, or is it just the software being picky?

What you put would kind of translate as 'I have a flat in my Spain.' I suppose the current Spanish monarch could get away with that.

Yeah yours is wrong. The agam goes with the item you are owning.

So it's closer to saying, "the flat i have is in Spain "?

How would you say "My flat is in Spain"? Is there a difference?

"my flat" is 'an flat agam' so Tha an flat agam anns an Spain
