SPAN 122-014 SPAN 122-020 Common composition errors: Accent Marks -Accent marks are very important in Spanish because a difference in accent marks could mean a VERY big difference in meaning. On quizzes and tests I am more lenient in this regard, but as the semester progresses I will pay closer attention to checking for accent marks. -This list shows you what you may accidentally express by leaving off an accent mark or tilde. ano - anus ingles - groin tu - your (NOT you) el - the masc (NOT him) mas - but si - if Awkward wording -Sometimes our first language interferes with the way we try to express ourself in our second language, which is completely understandable, but here are some things to keep in mind: *When saying “times,” as in I went to the park 4 time, use “veces” instead of “tiempos.” Fui al parque 4 veces. Using tiempos would not make sense to a native Spanish-speaker.

*NEVER say “Me llamo es.” “Me llamo” does not mean “My name,” it means “I call myself,” therefore only say “Me llamo Jennifer.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
