According to the Brazilian Portuguese my wife speaks.
Eu volto = I'll be back (shortly). (You say this when you are leaving.) Eu voltai = I am back. (You say this when you return.)
I know it sounds like the tenses are mixed up, but this is how they say it - at least in some parts of Brazil.
I did not check the prompt, thinking I remembered the verb. Duolingo corrected my "I will" to "I will go" which really confuses me since the prompt says the verb means "return". "I will go" is future, and hazs nothing to do with returning. Is this a duolingo error? Or if not, can someone explain it to me?
"I will" is "eu vou" and "I will go" can be "eu vou" or "eu irei" depending on context.
Duo can sometimes get confused and correct you to the nearest thing in terms of spelling instead of meaning. So yeah, I'd definitely call that an error. Next time something like that happens, flag it.
