DON'T MISS THE SUBJECT
This mistake happens because the subject in Spanish isn’t always necessary. In English, however, it most definitely is! "Es importante estudiar todos los días" is correct in Spanish, but when we try to translate this, many people say, "is important to study every day." It should say, “it is important to study every day.” In English, you must specify the subject.
THE OR NO THE?
The confusion with "the" or no "the" is always problematic for Spanish speakers because the use of the article in Spanish is much more common than in English. If we were to talk about children and adults in general using Spanish, we would say, “los niños son más inocentes que los adultos.” This is a perfectly correct sentence in Spanish. However, “the children are more innocent than the adults” is technically not correct, because we are talking about children and adults in general. Therefore, we must say, “children are more innocent than adults.” "The" is generally only used for specific things.
