Proof reading help with present tense subjective and grammar?

0
votes

I'm suppose complete the sentences using the present subjective tense for the verb you choose. Is this correct?
1. Me Alegro mucho de que
yo haya comido chocolate

2.¡Ojalá que todo el mundo
no hayan estado enferma!

  1. Espero que
    hayas hecho la tarea

  2. ¿Te sorprende que yo
    haya vivido en la montaña?

Is my grammar correct here?
Here I'm supposed to make a televison segment about an earthquake (and state my reporters name, tv station, time, date, and location.)
5. Hola, me llamo Rosa Gomaz y este es Zorro Dos Noticia. Son las cinco de la noche y hoy es el veinte de julio. Hoy en el capital ciudad de México, había un terremoto. El bombero y la policía están aquí. Hay es no muertes hasta ahora.

Here I'm supposed to give directions from the airport to a hotel.
6. Vas a la derecha del aeropuerto. Pues vas recto y pasa el barrio. Sigue hasta ves la hotel. Pues vas a la derecha y su en la hotel

sorry what I ment to say was:

Go to the right of the airport. Then, go straight and pass the neighborhood. Continue until you see the hotel. Then you go to the right and your at the hotel.
One small additional point (Lazarus was cutting & pasting and concentrating on the verbs); "hotel" is masculine (i.e. "el hotel").

Just a tiny correction to the English so that it can be properly translated into Spanish (I will not take on that task, it is done anyway, I thinkgrin

"Meant" needs and "a" in English spelling. As Lazarus pointed out in another thread, English spelling .... well, it is not easy to learn. It is of little consolation that people also have to learn to write Asian languages, probably yet more difficult. ps, I would be all for reforming English spelling!!

Next I am going to suggest that you would want to tell someone to "pass through" the neighborhood.

Finally, I think that you mean "you're" for "you are" in the final phrase of your directions.

In any case, Lazarus' translation seems to me to show that he knew what you were trying to say just by eliminating the "pues". For me it was good to learn that "Me alegro mucho de haber instead of que yo haya" It was a good lesson to read that "de haber" sounds natural. Everyone's questions serve all of us readers of the forum. Thanks!

When we give directions in English, we commonly use "then" with the meaning of "next". I looked up "pues" to find that one can use "then" to translate some of the meanings of "pues" (or vice versa.) "Go here, then go there." "Turn right, then turn left." That may be what Lala was trying (unsuccessfully as it turns out) to express in Spanish.
