"It is a national newspaper."
Translation:Es un periódico nacional.
How do you know when to switch the last 2 words around in sentences? I wrote " es un nacional periodico " but had a feelimg i was wrong .
When "it" is the subject, "it" is implied in the verb. Es=it is. It is only necessary to say "lo" when it is a direct object. For example, I want it. = Lo quiero. I know it. = Lo sé. Hope that helps.
Help- Ayudame how will I learn how to chose the tenses when listening or speaking?
