Spanish Sentence Challenge-Tipo

The Spanish Sentence Challenge is a fun way to practice your Spanish, and earn some lingots. The idea is that you take two similar Spanish words, and write a Spanish sentence with them. Your two words are:

Tipo-Type

Tipo-Dude/Guy


Example: Èl es mi tipo de tipo/He is my type of guy

i will give 15 lingots to the first one who completes the challenge, and five to every user after (as supplies last)

Good luck, and happy learning!

TP, is there any fast way to give someone lingots? Other than giving them one-by-one, and answering the pop-up after each addition that asks whether I really want to do this.

A sentence with "Tipo"?

No es el tipo de tipo que me esperaba
Hay un tipo que es justo el tipo de personas que nos viene bien
El tipo dice que hay varios tipos de colores
Si el tipo dice que hay varios tipos de tipos, entonces ese tipo es un tipo de los tipos
Cuando el tipo diga cuál es el tipo correcto, lo elegimos

etc.

My native language is Spanish, yes :)

Thank you a lot for the compliment :D! (Although I'm not sure if "compliment" is the correct word in that case)

I've studied English at school, "at YouTube videos' comments" (lol, there, surprisingly, I learnt the majorty of the things that I know), and I improved my English considerabily here in Duolingo.

You only used tipo once :) Look at the sentences G2DIPI posted a guide. here two lingots, and you can earn the other three with a sentence that uses it twice, each time as another word. Good luck :)

EDIT: Él es un/el tipo de ladrón que toma mi dinero y mata a mi familia con un tipo de arma que puede matar elefantes. <- that sentence is perfectly right [either with "un" or "el"] :)

I know, but it's less common to say "Él es un tipo de ladron que...", in that case "el" is used more often.
But it's not incorrect ;)

You should leave the contest open to any couple of look-alike words, for example: "Yo no traje el traje" (I didn't bring the suit); "El no va a la piscina porque no nada nada" (He doesn't go to the pool because he can't swim at all); "El sobre está sobre la mesa" (The envelope is on the table)

Es eso "His type is that one's type?" Si estoy correcto, pienso que eso es "su tipo es un tipo de aquel." No estoy muy buena, tambien.

Hmmm... I have always been a bit flummoxed about how to use this one (tipo = guy), so I'm gonna give it a shot!

Ese tipo no es mi tipo. (¿Lo hice bien? ¿Tiene sentido?)
