Why is "I am showing this woman the garden" not accepted? Usually present tense verbs accept either present simple or present continuous in English. Is there something I am missing?

That should be accepted. Report it.

Why is it "den Garten" and not "der Garten". Isn't this in the accusative?

It IS the accusative and therefore "den Garten". "Der Garten" is nominative (ie the subject).

"I am showing the garden to this lady." refused with "woman" underscored in the "correct" answer: " I am showing the garden to this woman." . In another exercise "lady" was accepted for "Frau".

I wrote " I show the garden the the woman". Which was not accepted. "Den" is the masculine accusative article, so "the garden" but does "den" have other meaning other than "the"?

I hate using the word woman and so always slip up by using lady. Must be the gentleman in me. The answers mean the same but it is always wrong if the word Dame is not in the sentence. Blah!

Why is lady not accepted instead of woman. Lady is more polite!

Why is 'I am showing the woman the garden.' deemed incorrect when it is perfectly good English. Obviously it is not as direct a translation of the German but the meaning has not been changed.

"I show the lady this garden". Garden is underlined and I am told I used the wrong word and the answer should be "I show the garden to this woman". As a native English speaker I know I am correct!

i did not use a wrong word, i MISSPELLED a word! (Left "S" out of "SHOW"

What's the difference between 'the woman' and 'this woman' in German? Aren't they both 'dieser Frau'?

"the woman" = "die Frau" (nominative, or subject); "der Frau" (dative, or indirect object).

"this woman" = "diese Frau" (nominative) ; "dieser Frau" (dative).
