Consider the following sentence:

I'm in your country, therefore I'll speak Spanish.

Notice the emphasis is on 'your'. How would this translate to Spanish?

  • Esto en el pais tuyo. It's a nontraditional enough statement to draw attention to the possessive adjective. – dockeryZ Jan 31 '16 at 9:11

With a big accented TU. (Like you were about to shout it.)

Estoy en TU país, por lo tanto hablaré Español.

  • Haha. I must really be over thinking things. It's really that simple, huh? – Rock Anthony Johnson Jan 31 '16 at 2:22
  • As a native speaker, I can tell it's just as simple as that. – Alejandro Jan 31 '16 at 2:23
  • Thanks so much. Feedback from a native speaker is extremely helpful. – Rock Anthony Johnson Jan 31 '16 at 2:24
