¡Confío en que hayas tenido unas vacaciones geniales en España!


Explanation:
Hi Jessie,

this is my version. I like "confío", it gives a more personal point of view about the "I hope", it's just more caring about who you are talking to. Moreover, use "genalies" as an adjective: it gives a flair of youth and friendliness you can't have with other adjectives. It's easy-going and nice to hear :)

Hope it helped, you choose :)

disagree  Bertha S. Deffenbaugh: Nice NO ES "geniales", Geniales sería AWSOME

  -> 1º,viva la semiótica (y la intencionalidad) - 2º me enseñan a traducir el tono,no palabra por palabra - STOP

disagree  bea0: Flavio: Yo también tengo que disentir esta vez. Nice no es exactamente geniales.Es menos enfático: lindas, gratas...

  -> OK, pero crees que en una conversación informal entre amigos pensará si es enfática o no la elección de su léxico?

Espero hayas tenido unas estupendas vacaciones en España


Explanation:
estupendas equivale a = -unas verdaderamente agradables-

Creo que así tiene el sentido adecuado sin tener que usar tanta palabreria.

Just a note...


Explanation:
Probably "geniales" sounds TOO enphatic outside SPAIN? Here it is quite normal and positive, and used by young people with the same value of "Nice".

Anyway, I don't know if it has other connotations in Argentina.

Best wishes!!!

Flavio
