  1. Hello Mark and Carmen!

    I’m curious about two things:

    If Rory wants to take a gift, wouldn’t he have to say “Quiero llevar un regalito para tus padres…”, instead of “Quiero trear un regalito para tus padres…”?

    And if María is going to pick up Rory at the airport, wouldn’t she have to say, “Vale, te iré a buscar en el aeropuerto”, instead of using, “vendré”?

    I know in English we use “bring/take” and “come/go” much more loosely, but I thought in Spanish it depended on where the speaker was at the time compared to the destination.

    Thanks for any insight!
