Shop in Spanish at the Fairgrounds

Hello Everybody....  I hope you are doing great.  We are meeting to go shopping at the Fairgrounds in Raleigh.  We will walk around the fairgrounds and check out different products.  If the vendors, speak Spanish, we will spend a little bit more time with them practicing.  If the vendors, don's speak Spanish, I will be there to do a simulation of how would I sell the products to you.  And how you would respond.

    I really enjoyed walking around the fairgrounds with Belen and the others. All of us were at different levels in our learning, but I think everyone walked away having learned something new and useful. I'm excited to do it again.

    2) The use of the subjuntive See below 2 important phrases you will need to know.
    - I hope you have a great day.
    In english -- hope and have are in present

    - I hope you had a great day.
    In English -- hope is in present, had is in past. In spanish is not like that.
    Do not try to analize the gramatical structure
    Do not try to translate. It doesn´t make sense.
    If you try to understand it, it will become difficult and confusing.
    If you "Just accept" it and go on - it will be easy. 1) I hope you have a great day.
    Yo espero que Ustedes "tengan" un buen día.
    Espero ---- Presente Indicativo
    Tengan ---- Presente subjuntivo

    2) I hope you HAD a great day.
    Yo espero que Ustedes "HAYAN tenido" un buen día.
    Espero ---- Presente Indicativo
    Hayas tenido ----- "Pretérito perfecto"

      Ginger.... Remember... "Trabajo" is the noun. And after the verb "tengo que" you should always put another verb (not conjugated) . And the verb is "Trabajar". So, your sentence should have said: No puedo asistir porque tengo que trabajar EL domingo. Also, we don´t say "On Sunday", or "on Monday"... It is only "El domingo", or "El lunes".
