Is this sentence wrong? Ella te ha sido atraído últimamente.


Or just better to say it this way? Ella ha estado atraída a ti últimamente.

Yes. It is not stating anything in Spanish, and one has to guess asto what it means

If it was: "Ella te ha sido atractiva ultimamente" you would be saying: She has been attractive to you lately.

You see, to be attracted and to be attractive is different.

Yes.

Now look at the sentence in English and Spanish. they are almost the same in both cases. Right.

What say you?

Ok, but make that practice reading and writing a novel. One that you already enjoyed very much in English. And also listen to yourself reading it out loud in Spanish.
