Ingeniero Informático. Ayudar a otros a aprender español me ayuda a reflexionar sobre mi idioma, y de paso, me ayuda a refrescar y aprender inglés.

comment Why do oler and saber take the preposition “a”?
@jrdioko In Spanish we use "sabe como a" (yes, again "a") when the taste is similar, and this is how I use "tastes like", maybe I'm not that right.

I've just learned in English is "taste of" instead "taste to". For me at least it is "the way things are".

comment Describing the common cold or flu in Spanish
In Spain, to have a cold is "tener catarro" or "estar constipado" (not to be confused with "constipated", which in Spain is "estreñido"), "resfriado" is more "formal". Flu is just "gripe", not gripa nor influenza. So, in Spain we make the difference between cold and flu.

comment What is the rule for cualquier, cualquiera, and cualesquiera?
Nope, you can't, see: "Cualesquiera: it is the plural form and it appears after the noun". It is a must, "lee cualesquiera cinco páginas" it's wrong; it's "lee cinco páginas cualesquiera".

@user983248 I don't think so, I think each country make some regulations on how to write its currency.

I downvote this because it doesn't say at all what is the correct form.

comment ¿Qué significa «En 2.° plano»?
No tengo iPhone ni he usado Safari. Muchas veces, además de lo que ponga, es mejor probar lo que hace. Esto pasa tanto en castellano como en inglés en las interfaces de los programas.
