Más que vs. Más de

In Module 12, there appears the statement, "Gracias a Dios que me queda más que un día de vacaciones." Shouldn't the comparison in this sentence be using "más de" instead of "más que", since numbers are being compared? I have checked two separate Spanish grammar sources, and both seem to indicate "más de."

¡Hola Tomás71!

You're right: since numbers are involved, it should indeed be más de here and not más que. Thank you for pointing this out to us, and our apologies for the error. I guess it goes to show that even native speakers will mix up más de and más que sometimes! :) I will pass this on to our audio team to look into fixing.

Saludos,

Liss
