I am confused with the following sentence. Can anyone explain? "Esa chaqueta es mejor porque es mucho más corta." in this sentence, Mucho is modifying corta, then shouldn't it be "mucha?" or when we modify only adjective, we use masculine form?

How can I determine when to conjugate the verb as a reflexive verb and when to use the standard (non reflexive) conjugation. Is "she learns quickly" "ella se aprende rapido" or "ella aprende rapido?"

Hello, I started using the Fluenz Spanish (Spain) program just about a week ago. However, this isn't my first attempt at learning Spanish. I've been very slowly learning with free programs here and there for a couple of years. I've also spent a lot of time in Spain over the last 3 years. Anyways, my concern/question is with rolling my R's. I have been trying for almost 3 years now to roll my R's with the tip of my tongue on the roof of my mouth (behind my front teeth) but I just CANNOT do it. When a word has a single R in it, I've learned to simply place my tongue in that spot and almost pronounce it similar to a D. However, words involving a double R as in "perro" are impossible for me. Being a lifelong English and French speaker (especially in french we roll our R's in the back of our throats) it feels like my tongue will never be able to do it. Does anyone have any exercises or tips on how I might finally be able to roll my R's like a Spaniard? I have looked online multiple times and have done many exercises for months and months on end and nothing has worked for me so far. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

I love Fluenz Spanish, but the section on "write the phrase you hear" sometimes drives me crazy. It is the same speaker every time, and she slurs her words together so much. With the next upgrade would it be possible to record a variety of speakers for this section? I have an easier time understanding all the other speakers in Fluenz Spanish, especially the male voices. Please switch things up and use a variety of voices for the section on "write the phrase you hear". Gracias.

I am bit confused when translating a sentence like "I am going to the museum". In Fluenz it seems that there are two ways and I don't know if one is correct or I can use either. I see the translation "Yo voy en el museum" and I also see "Yo voy al museum" I guess my question is when to use "en" and "a" when translating "to", Thanks

Spanish Upgraded, Level 2, Session 8 We've been using estar for location, except in cases like "Es alla" or "Si, es aqui" when identifying a place. However, in this session something changed, and I'm not sure why. "Where is the office?" is translated as "Donde esta la oficina?" but "Where is the meeting?" is translated as "Donde es la reunion?" followed by various phrases giving the location of the reunion. I would understand using ser to describe the identity of the meeting, such as "La reunion es en ese edificio" because that may never change, but once we start describing the location of the meeting using directions, why do we not use estar?

Match the Phrases: Voy a comer con ellos a esa lugar todos los días. In this sentence, preposition "a" is placed before a place/destination, giving the translation, "I go to eat with them TO that place every day." "Voy a comer con ellos A esa lugar todos los días." Shouldn't this sentence be, "I go to eat with them AT that place everyday." ? Can preposition "en" be used also? ---> Voy a comer con ellos en esa lugar todos los días. Why is it that "A" instead of "EN" is used here?

I didn't know where else to put this issue. On Level 2 Session 21 in the "Write the phrase you hear" section when he says "La semana pasada, estuve en México" it's almost impossible to notice that he says en. I know grammar wise there is supposed to be an "en" there and I should have thought about that, but it's still frustrating. If there is a better place to report these types of speaker/audio issues let me know. :) Link: https://online.fluenz.com/#drill/G/15

I know this probably isn't a problem for most people so disculpe, but I think the workout speakers go a pequeno too fast. I have a hard time keeping up, but if you don't change the speaker speed that's ok because I'm getting along muy Bueno still.
