Sure you will.

You could have changed the first verb to "I received" and then 'ayer' could have stood on its own. But with the present-tense verb you chose, it doesn't make sense on its own.

English allows a noun to modify a noun. That can't happen in Spanish.
By the way, names of languages aren't capitalized in Spanish.

Again, 'I received' would have worked better.

receive = recibir
Go here to see how to conjugate it into 'I received' (preterit tense).

Then, looking at the correction at the top of the thread, try your hand at 'I received my new Spanish keyboard today/yesterday' in Spanish.

It is a 'not sign'. The caret (^), a mark on the same key as the number 6, is also used as a 'not sign' (see regular expressions in information technology - character class).

I wonder why they have it on a Spanish keyboard but not on an English keyboard.

Couldn't say, except that there have been many different layouts on English keyboards.
Not everyone uses the same layout.
