TwitterLearn introduces you to the basics of the language and we don’t expect to cover every eventuality. However, with the constructions that we introduce to you in the daily tweets and lessons you should be well-equipped to deal with most situations, and you can easily use a dictionary to find the word for whatever doesn’t work in your room, then combine it with the expression hay un problema con… or … no funciona.
