España se lanzó a la conquista
can anyone translate the text above please? its for our daughter's Spanish homework...
Most eveyone I know rarely does anything "in ernest"...
i would say exactly what you have already said but adding "in earnest". the english very rarely throw or launch themselves.
Spain started the conquest in earnest.
I have found another one which I think is the best translation for this:
Spain embarked itself on the conquest.
In Spanish it means:
Spain started the conquest/launched the conquest/decided to ...
I am interested too how exactly one would say that in English.
the Spanish verb is "lanzar" used in its pronominal form.
listen to Cherry, those pronouns get me every time.
Spain threw itself into the conquest.
Thanks Motley. It all makes sense now!!
But what is the verb'
Spain launched the conquest.
