Every day I learn more spanish ,I hope I can survive .

Cada día aprendo más Español,espero puedo sobrevivir.

Well done Jenny

Cada día aprendo más 'de' español, espero poder sobrevivr.

Don't forget that countries have capitals but languages don't.  Also if there's no change of subject you can follow 'espero' with the infinitive (or two in this case lol)   :)

Well thank you very much  I never new that  about the infinite.does that happen in all cases.?? 

It does if there's no change of subject, ie. if you hope that you can or will do something.  If however you hope that someone else does something you will need to insert a 'que' and follow it with the subjunctive but that's another whole lesson!  ;)

And in English I should think of "more of Spanish "not "more spanish "??

Sorry about the capital letter sometimes I still forget.I love this site it is so informative thankyou.

Yay, glad you're enjoying it here :)  PS  btw, this is actually just an 'English' word of the day thread, we have a different one going for Eng/Spanish but all good - hopefully some learners of English will join us soon for some practice.
