Help if you can speak Spanish Hi! I'm having trouble with pronouns, and I can't quite figure how to translate this sentence. "Sabrosos is a restaurant. It is delicious." Would I used direct or indirect object pronouns? Do I even need a pronoun? Help!

A lot of times when you need a pronoun in English, you don't need one in Spanish. Sentences like "I like it" can simply be translated with "me gusta". That's why you will hear a lot of Spanish natives say "I like" when they speak English. :) Don't try to translate literally! You need to get used to how they speak!

tasty or delicious are synonyms that only apply to tastings of food or drinks, but when we talk about restaurants we use terms such as good or very good

sabroso o delicioso son sinonimos que solo se aplican a degustaciones de alimentos o bebidas, pero cuando hablamos de restaurantes utilizamos terminos como bueno o buenisimo

I think you don't need a pronoun if we understand pronoun as "a word that substitutes a name "

You don't need it because you are not substituing a grammatical subject "he/el, she/Ella, we/nosotros" (presonal pronouns/pronombres personales)

You don't need it because you are not saying something is of your property or belongs you (possessive pronoun/ pronombres posesivos) "mine/mio, yours/tuyo"

You don't need it because you are not expressing distance you and a point  "this/este'" (demonstrative pronouns/pronombres demostrativos)


You don't need it because you are not indicating an defined quantity in an imprecise way "either/cualquier , few/pocos" (presonal pronouns/pronombres personales) or expressing order/ quantity precisely ( first/ primero, one/ une, two/dos) ( numeral pronouns/ pronombres numerales)


You don't need it because you are not introducing a question or exclamation "what/ que, what is that thing?/ Que es aquella cosa? " (/pronombres intereogativos o exclamativos)


You don't need it because you are not introducing an adjective sentence "that/que, wich/que/cual, who/que/quien, whom/que/a quien, whose/cuyo,"
(Relative pronouns/pronombres relativos)

I am not a teacher but I'm pretty sure this is correct

Sabrosos es un restaurante.  Es delicioso.

This is how you would translate this sentence.
