comment Why does “every eight days” mean once a week?
@HéctorE I'm from Spain too and though I have never heard that exact idiom either, I've heard "[de] hoy en ocho", which means "next week, on the same weekday as today". I guess it's similar to using "15 días" to say two weeks.

comment Why would “breakfast” be translated as “lunch”?
When I hear someone use almuerzo, I'm not always sure what they mean, since I've heard it used for breakfast, lunch and also morning snack.

comment Conditional or Future for Tener
How is the answer provided not conditional? It's as conditional as the original sentence. The conditionalness of the sentence is determined by the use of if/si. Those introduce a condition. A different matter is the conditional conjugation of verbs, which is used in some kinds of conditional sentences.

comment how do you pronounce “los” when conjugated?
"The letter o in Standard Spanish always has the same pronunciation". I sometimes think that English speakers (or speakers of any other language with more vowel sounds than Spanish) would maybe disagree. I mean, we might pronounce different o sounds, or a sounds, or... but the important thing is that the pronounciation doesn't change the meaning, as opposed to English (to live/live music).

comment Difference between casa and hogar
Yes, that's what I meant, that "casa" can have the "home" meaning too.

comment Difference between casa and hogar
Well, if you look them up in RAE, you'll see that hogar means "casa" or "familia que vive junta" plus other unrelated meanings. And casa also means "familia", so I think the dictionary (at least this one) does not really answer the question.

comment Difference between casa and hogar
How about "sentirse como en casa"? It does not refer to "a house", but rather to "home".

comment Why would you ever say “el vino está delicioso”?
Yes, you could say "este vino es delicioso", but then maybe the flashcard should have been "this wine is delicious"...

Spanish speakers often have trouble knowing when to omit the article in English.

comment Vegetables in Spanish
Often, "bocadillo vegetal" is a "bocadillo" which has lettuce and tomato, or other vegetables. It can have tuna as @JoulSauron says, but also chicken or other meats. Just google for "vegetal de pollo" and you'll see. I've never understood it, by the way.
