Were There Many Pubs In That Town?


SCENARIO
Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a work colleague. You are talking about a past event/ activity. The event/ activity in question relates to a town you visited at some time in the past. You are talking about some of the peculiarities of that town. At some point, the other person says to you something like: "were there many pubs in that town?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Había muchos bares en aquel pueblo?


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not there were many bars in the town in question. Here are some examples of how you could reply:

  • Sí, había muchos bares en aquel pueblo (yes, there were many pubs in that town);
  • Había algunos bares en aquel pueblo (there were some pubs in that town);
  • No, había muy pocos bares en aquel pueblo (no, there were very few pubs in that town);
  • No, no había bares en aquel pueblo (no, there were no pubs in that town);
  • No, no había ningún bar en aquel pueblo (no, there weren't any pubs in that town);


Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Había muchos bares en aquel pueblo?
