This week it’s the turn of Steve and Beth to have their questions answered. Steve wants to know about the use of haber de + infinitive which results in an interesting conversation between JP and Nahyeli involving quotations, dramatic and archaic language. Cue the violins! Beth’s question is about how best to translate “to try to do something”, and our hosts offer some examples using tratar de hacer algo and intentar hacer algo.

If you have a question for our experts, you can get in touch with the Q&A Spanish team at the Q&A Spanish page. Remember that we welcome all questions, even if you’re just starting out with Spanish!
