Muy bien, +Бисера Балканска... efectivamente, la opción correcta es la (c)... tener cuidado quiere decir prestar atención a lo que se hace -en inglés 'to be careful'...y tienes cuidado = you are careful...
Option (c) is the right one... tener cuidado = to be careful... hence, tienes cuidado = you are careful...

Buen trabajo, +bino frank bukki... pero más correcta es la opción (d)... dar corte significa dar vergüenza... y el plural muchas cosas implica el plural me dan corte ...
Option (d) is the right one... dar corte means 'to cause embarrassment... and the plural muchas cosas requires the use of the plural me dan corte ...

Story
Tagline
Passion for all things Spanish.
Introduction
I am a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language. I was born and educated in Spain. I have been living in the UK for most of my adult life. As a child, I was brought up speaking Gallego and Spanish. I studied Latin and French at school. In my travels, I have learned to communicate in English, Portuguese, Italian and Catalan. I am passionate about languages. Online Spanish lessons have become my labour of love. Through my Love-Spanish.com blog and Love-Spanish Google+ page, I post free online Spanish lessons and tips on a daily basis.
