    Tengo la impresión de la descripción que da Marina del sentido de “ensayar” que se podría traducir por “to rehearse” en inglés.

    I have a question about the sentence ‘La gente ha vuelta a ser creyente’ – As the past participle of volver is preceded by the preposition ‘a’ does this not translate to ‘the people have returned to be religious/believers’ or ‘the people have become believers once again’? Rather than ‘the people have become religious’, which implies that they have found religion for the first time. Which I would imagine translates back to Spanish as ‘La gente se ha vuelto ser creyente’.

    The subtle differences between some verbs and their reflexive forms, along with which preposition (if any) to precede it with cause me great confusion.




    PS: love your podcasts, keep up the great work.

    Thanks for pointing out that the translations is not entirely correct as the concept of once again is not included in the English version. Here you have the sentence corrected (in capitals):

    A raíz de esto la gente ha vuelto a ser mucho más creyente, se ha potenciado su fe – As a result of this, people have become greater believers AGAIN and their faith has got stronger.
