This lesson is a 2 day lesson! Get ready! ¡Pónte listo!
This is an upper beginner or low intermediate lesson geared to help you work on fluency! Among the key concepts is the use of the connector (relative pronoun) lo que, as well as the term los demás (others) and las demás personas. These terms are a little better in usage that what a non-native speaker might use. For example, las demás personas is best used in place of "otras personas." You might also just use los demás.
