How would i say "I wanted to try"?
Please could someone help me with how to say: "I wanted to try", in the context of having just said that: sorry my Spanish is bad but i wanted to try. Thanks Cardiff
A little context would help with the proper translation, but - generally speaking - you are looking at either "Quise intentar/intentarlo" or "Quería intentar/intentarlo"
If it was a one-time desire to try, such as "I decided to try it" you would use "quise", whereas if it was a long-time desire to try it, such as "Yes, I always wanted to try that", go with "quería"
Once again, if you want to be more specific with the context, please add that to your post.
Also very common in Mexico "Quería hacer la lucha." "I wanted to make the effort."
"quise* has the implication that you tried and failed. while ""quería"is simply statement your intention at the time.
