Saluton,

Dankon for the corrections for the previous exercises, here are some new ones if someone would have time to check if these are correct...

1. My mother-in-law started to learn Esperanto.
Mia bopatrino eklernis Esperanton.
(Learn? Better: Study? But is it still "lerni"?)

2. My ex-colleagues will distribute newspapers.
Miaj ekskollegioj disdonos ĵurnalojn.

3. That wicked man made a wrong step.
Tiu fiviro faris ĝustan paŝon.

4. My parents visited their great-grandsons.
Miaj gepatroj vizitis iliaj pranepojn.

    Saluton,

    Dankon for the corrections for the previous exercises, here are some new ones if someone would have time to check if these are correct...

    1. My mother-in-law started to learn Esperanto.
    Mia bopatrino eklernis Esperanton.
    (Learn? Better: Study? But is it still "lerni"?)

    ek- is more for sudden beginnings.
    Mi ekstaris = I jumped to my feet.

    I would say "komencis lerni"


    2. My ex-colleagues will distribute newspapers.
    Miaj ekskollegioj ekskologoj disdonos ĵurnalojn.

    kolegio = college, in both the sense of "the college of cardinals" and Kansas State College
    kolego = colleague


    3. That wicked man made a wrong step.
    Tiu fiviro faris malĝustan paŝon.

    I think "Tiu fiviro mispaŝis" would be neater.

    4. My parents visited their great-grandsons.
    Miaj gepatroj vizitis siajn pranepojn.
