Can it be "что ты пьёшь, молоко?"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olimo

Yes, that should be fine.

wouldnt it be what are you drinking? milk?

the problem given was that I needed to translate and use a word that I hadn't learned yet (ie. пьёшь). I was shown пьёт, but not пьёшь. maybe this needs to be put later on in the question order?

Happened to me, too. I've only encountered the пьёт lesson and then this one came out of left field. Had to guess but got it wrong. Duo should introduce the translation texts first (where there are hover hints) before the corresponding multiple choice questions. Otherwise, there's really no way but to guess the answer to sentences you see for the first time.

I put "Ты что пьёшь, молоко?" and it marked it as incorrect - is this an acceptable translation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olimo

Sounds fine, report it.

Kinda sucks that I have to do those accents, I can only do the é one. :(

You can use "е" instead of "ё". Most Russians do.

Would it be correct to say "Что пьёшь, молоко?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olimo

Yes, it is fine. Report it if it's not accepted.

We do not have this sentence. Reporting will not fix it.

I will. I wrote it and it was not accepted
