I insist: this is not good French:
- Allons déjeuner / dîner / manger quelque chose ensemble.
The audio is dreadful. Ordinary speed sounds like 'Allons manger ensemble', but wouldn't an exclamation mark ever be used? The learner audio is a mess, it sounds like allions or aller en, or even as if there is a 'y' in there. I know 'Allons au restaurant !' But this defied logic, as if the tape slipped, or it was a different phrase. By the way, thank you for all the hard work you do and for standing up for good French. Merci Sitesurf, from us all.
The good news about a sub-optimal audio feature on Duolingo is that you might understand French people a lot better! ;-)
The usual English version would be "let's go and eat together" technically it should be "let's go to eat together" but the former is more frequently used. "let's go eat together" is not good English!
Isn't it 'Let's go eat together?' Not a native speaker, but the proposed option sounds unnatural....
Yes, that is much more natural than the supposedly correct answer provided. I reported this 4/2/14.
Let's go and eat together is perfect English - 'Let's go eat' is a very Americanised version.
5 years is a long time for an answer that is incorrect in English, although OK in American. We say: "Let's go and eat." "Let's go and eat together." "Let's go to eat together."
