I was wondering the same thing. What's the difference between "comienza" and "empieza"?
Hey, this has been bugging me too. After searching around it seems that comienza would be like commence in english and empieza would be like begins in english. In this was empieza is a little more casual and comienza is a little more formal, or at least that's how I'm interpreting its use.
"Fiesta" has become almost an English word. Moreover, it could be translated as "festival." W/o context we don't know what the speaker refers to: something small or large.
Why not festival? Someone said "fiesta" does not mean "festival", then how do you explain "Fiesta Nacional"? National Party?
As with other posts I cannot see why 'festival' would not be acceptable as a translation of 'fiesta' in the sentence
Festival is more like a public event where anyone can go whereas party is more like a private, have to be invited kind of thing
yes, but also words that are pronounced like a vowel. Hour is pronounced 'ow' at the start
Yours is the best comment over almost nothing. Have a Lingot and I'm out of here.
Should be correct. I answered the same. The party starts in an hour. It was marked correct. May 14, 2016.
English question, why is it "an hour" and not "a hour" since h is technically a consonant.
In English, 'an' is used before words that start with a vowel sound and 'a' is used before words that begin with a consonant sound. It doesn't matter whether the word actually starts with a vowel or a consonant, the only important thing is the sound. The 'h' is silent in 'hour', so you must use 'an' and not 'a'.
wow can I just say that you're streak and languages that you're learning are very impressive!
it's because you pronounce it like 'ow'. For example, you say 'an MP' because you pronounce M like 'em' where e is a vowel. Sorry for the bad example but I'm currently taking a break from politics revision haha
How is 'the party starts in an hour' not correct? It's a mixture of the two correct answers
Don't you think it's funny that we are trying to learn Spanish but all the comments are people teaching others about English??
I don't exactly get how it would be "an hour," when hour doesn't begin with a vowel...
