Mistakes in Spanish: “Ser x años”

Here are some correct examples:

  • “Tengo 30 años”.
  • “Mi nombre es Juan y tengo 40 años“.
  • “Tengo 56 años”.

“Trabajo en lunes or trabajo lunes”

Some correct examples:

  • “Mi mamá trabaja el viernes.”
  • “Yo trabajo el lunes y el martes.”
  • “Voy a tu casa el sábado”

“Me voy a mover el fin de semana”

Don’t forget that the right verb for moving to live from one house to another, in Spanish is: Mudarse:

  • “Me voy a mudarel martes”.
  • “Quiero mudarme a otro barrio”.
  • “Alberto va a mudarseel próximo fin de semana”.

“Preguntar por un menú”

Remember, when you are going to ask for a menu, in this context, the correct verb is: “pedir”:

  • “Voy a pedirle un menú al mesero.”
  • “Necesito pedir un menú para saber que puedo comer.”

“Un otro”

Remember, in Spanish we just say “otro”:

  • “Necesito otro televisor en casa.”
  • “Voy a conseguir otro carro para ti.”

“Buscar por”

Just remember, in Spanish we don’t say this literally word for word just as we say it in English, all you need to say is buscar:

  • Voy a buscar mis zapatos.
  • Déjame buscar mi billetera antes de irnos.
  • Busca las llaves del carro por favor.
