About me

About me

My name is Hui and I am a Biomedical Science student at King's College London. I was born in Alicante, Spain so I speak native Spanish and since I was young I developed an interest for languages (for sciences too!). I believe language is a powerful tool to communicate yourself as well as a way of discovering new cultures through it. As for sciences like Biology, I see them as a "language" and a tool to help us understand everything around us: from nature to our own bodies.

I was born into a big family (I have three younger siblings!) and therefore consider that I am able to talk to younger kids. Also, being the older sister meant that I was responsible for helping out my siblings with their homework and so I feel comfortable explaining things, no matter how many times or how many ways I need to work around it. Not only do I help my siblings, but I feel satisfied when I accomplish to explain a concept to one of my classmates succesfully.

About the sessions

Don't hesitate on asking anything, be it about exam formats, the programme in general or even uni related questions! I am also flexible in regards the content of the session, we can touch different subjects in the same session (as long as they're included in my qualifications).

If you have any other questions feel free to ask and I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Hui has answered

Why does the verb "haber" sometimes not match the person and number of the subject in a sentence?

The main uses of the verb "haber" include its use as an auxilliary verb (ha comido) and as part of a verbal periphrasis (he de soportar), in this case, the person (first, second or third person) and number (singular, plural) do match those of the subject in a sentence. However, one of the mos...

The main uses of the verb "haber" include its use as an auxilliary verb (ha comido) and as part of a verbal periphrasis (he de soportar), in this case, the person (first, second or third person) and number (singular, plural) do match those of the subject in a sentence.

However, one of the most important uses of this verb is in its impersonal form. This means that "haber" in its impersonal form appears in sentences that do not have a "person" or object as a subject. For example in "Hay una té en la mesa", one may think that "té" is the subject when in reality it is a direct object. In another example, "Hubo varios voluntarios en la sala", it might appear more confusing, as one might think that the subject would be "varios voluntarios", which is in plural.

One way to make sure whether the verb we are working with is impersonal or not is to attempt replacing the apparent subject with a direct object pronoun (lo, la, los, las) and a subject pronoun (él, ella, ellos, ellas), and check with which one is the sentence coherent. In the sentence "Hay té en la mesa":

Él hay en la mesa (as subject)

Lo hay en la mesa (as direct object)

As we can see above, the first sentence is not coherent as a "person" or object cannot perform the action of the conjugated verb "hay". Therefore, the second sentence proves that the verb "haber" in this case functions as impersonal.
