"Ustedes son mujeres."
Translation:You are women.
50 Comments This discussion is locked.
"Tú eres una mujer" = You are a woman. "Ustedes son mujeres" = "You are women". The first one is singular (it is said to only one person) and the second one is plural (It is said to a group of women).
If you answered "you are women" then it should have been correct. Otherwise, report it.
No, as "tú eres" is the second person of singular, and "mujeres" is plural. It'd be "tú eres mujer".
I was taught that Ustedes could translate to You Guys. It is also acceptable here.
I'm french it seems like that there are common points with spanish. But it is pretty strange that "we or you" (plural) can give precisions about gender,.in french it is "nous" and "vous". In german wir , ihr
but the plural "You" gives precisions about gender only in the spanish from Spain (Vosotros/vosotras) but in my country (Chile) and in the Duolingo use, it is said "Ustedes", which can be used either for women or for men.
i knew that ustedes is they and vosotros/vosotras is you(plural) in spanish..... but here i am being shown a different solution....confused.... please help
Nope. "Ustedes" and "Vosotros / as" both refer to "you" in plural. The difference is that "ustedes" is used in a formal way, and also especially in South America.
"You are ladies" was incorrect. Is there a distinction between ladies and women in Spanish?
Yep, just as there is in English. All women are not ladies, and all mujeres are not senoras or damas.
"Usted" es mujer" and "Ustedes son mujeres" I got one right and the other wrong. The problem was NOT with 'woman' and 'women' - it seemed to be between the singular and plural for me. Can someone help me on this? Got the first one right.
"Son" (when used like the second person of plural) is mostly used in South America and two regions of Spain, specifically in Andalucía and Canary Islands. The Spanish accent used in Duolingo is South American, but you are most likely to never hear "son" this way in Spain, unless you go to those comunities or you run into a very formal person.
"Son" is the conjugation with the "tuteo" form (using "tú"), while "sois" comes with the "voseo" way (using "vos" as singular second-person)
Wow, absolutely no. "Ustedes" means "You" (the plural form). That's the only possible meaning.
You are women? What kind of sentence is that? Shouldn't that be "they are women"?
Is this to teach us specifically the difference in male and female words/phrasing? ... I really just want to be able to.communicate better with my customers. ;-; I haven't learned one sentence where I could actually use it, yet.
"Tú eres mujer" and "Ustedes son mujeres" are not the same. The first is singular and the second one is plural. "Tú eres" is singular, and "women" plural. No way.
Can someone help me? I put 'You are a woman' and I got it wrong, the correct answer was, 'You are women' I don't understand how I am wrong.
Thank you, Kailea
