      Much appreciated for your instruction. I still can’t figure out when to use the vosotros verb form, so the part of this lesson referring to hablasteis, cantasteis, etc is lost on me. Ugh. I will go back to the beginning to try to find clues.

      Carmen, you will only use that form if you are talking to several Spanish-speaking friends. ie people you do not need to address formally. So maybe you don’t need to worry about it too much.
