Questions about Spelling:

Q: Why is it No me gusta a mí and NOT No me gusta a mi?

The word  (accent) means "me" and occurs after prepositions; the word mi means "my" and must occur before a noun. 

Q: Why is it el perro agresivo and NOT el perro aggressivo?

Though this is a cognate with English, be careful as the spelling is not the same. Spanish often does not have the same double consonants as English does.

Q: Why is it se llama Jorge and NOT se yama Jorge?

Although this word starts with a sound like English y, in Spanish this sound is often written as ll.
