I put - we drink one bottle an hour and it was marked incorrect but it means exactly the same thing and would be used in preference by English speakers.
These prepositions are confusing. Need to look up a guide for all the different uses.
I heard "allora" instead of "all'ora," so I translated it "then," which still makes sense to me.
I agree. I put allora as well, and both seem to make sense. Would it have been clear to a native speaker which it was? Any native speakers who can offer some insight?
What is wrong with "We drink a bottle hourly"? Surely it is grammatically correct and is an appropriate translation.
And what about "we drink a bottle now"? Isn't "all'ora" also "now"? At least that was a translation offered in the hint.
I'm confused about this as well! I studied Italian in high school (which to be fair, was quite some time ago), and I'm using duolingo to brush up. I seem to recall that "all'ora" means "now." I wrote that as my translation and it was marked wrong! Doubly confused since it's definitely offered as a translation option.
'Per' didn't come up in the choices, and as this is not a common phrase, I couldn't even guess what it meant, and put 'to the hour'. Stupid I know, but hey ho!!
I put per ora instead of all'ora and it was accepted. Is one more commonly used?
Yes - for an Italian - by "a bottle" they mean one of those tiny Italian bottles of red "bitter"
"One bottle per hour"! That's a fair bit.of drinking!...maybe it was a bottle of water :p
Perhaps, but it depends on how many are drinking and how big the bottle is. That could make all the difference.
Where did "per" come from? All' doesn't include "per" as one of the options. Neither is to, at the, or at one of the options which can be inserted in the blanks.
I wrote "beviamo una bottiglia allora", but it says it's incorrect. Why can't it be "we drink a bottle then" or "let's drink a bottle then"?
my answer was right and the same as your answer below but you marked it wrong
I personally am so drunk with this sentence, I don't care what prepositions to use:)
