Q:on the ser/ estar poster shouldn't "es" las ocho really by "son" las ocho?? And haber que would probably be better to say "Hay que" since hardly anyone uses the infinitive haber in beginning Spanish.

A: Thanks for contacting us. We consulted with one of the native Spanish speakers on our proofreading team, and this is what he had to say: It says "Es a las ocho en punto" (It's at eight o'clock). If it didn't have the "a," then it would be wrong because it would be telling a time (It's eight o'clock). "Haber que" is a question of decision, not a mistake. The developer decided to use the infinitive in all the posters, and stuck to it. It might be true that most teachers teach "Hay que" as a structure, but strictly speaking, the infinitive is grammatically correct. Thanks again!
