Could we also translate this as: "We are currently in America."? Wouldn't that make more sense?

Yes, it's accepted now

Yeah I saw. Thanks a lot :)

I think it doesn't make more sense but the same. At least without being a part of a longer text.

Hmmmm, so is Australia in America?

I'm English, "We are in America now" can mean different things depending on emphasis. It can imply that later we might be somewhere else, or it can imply that we were somewhere else earlier, depending on if the emphasis was on "America," or on "now." Does this also apply in Russian?

Any sentence in English does that and in Russian...

Why is 'We are currently in America' not accepted as a translation?


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

It should be accepted, report it.

America is a continent not just a country

Why ' We are in America now '? Can it not be ' We are currently in America ' or ' We are in America'?
