not 100% sure but...I would have to say punctuation style is a bit diff then in English. They use a question mark before the important sentence & after it, where as in English we would only have it at the end of a sentence. same with exclamation points. like for example: In English when we say Ouch! (we use the exclamation point only at the end of the word.) In Spanish it would look like this: ¡Ay! (notice how the exclamation point is at the beginning & at the end of the word!
because when you read something in english you dont always realize that its supposed to be yelled or stated as a question so in spanish you know how to say it. trust me on this one. ive been taking spanish for 6 years from 3 different teachers and they've all told me the same thing
Its to show that its an exclamatory scentence. Like how we would use an exclamation mark. When their asking an exclamatory question they use the upside down question mark at the beginning and the regular one at the end.
oh. okay. well thats why. just a question, why is she teaching spanish if she doesnt know that. that was one of the first things i learned
i know spanish i was just asking cause my teacher didnt know why they put that there
