provengo de inglaterra


Can I say this instead of 'Soy de Inglaterra' or does it sound strange?

It does sound strange to me, I know the verb provenir means to come from but I don't think it means to come from as in your place of origen, I suspect one could say for instance, ese ordenador provino de china to mean that this computor came from china.I think we need a native grammaterian to sort this one out.

Estoy de acuerdo con Ken. Nunca he oído alguien djio, "provengo de..." Al contrario, puedes decir vengo de Inglaterra y suena correcta. - Kerri, ABR 4, 2010

"origin" - "computer" - "China" - "grammarian"... :) - cristalino, SEP 8, 2011
