"I am not a boy."
Translation:Yo no soy un niño.
Yes. The "yo" in "yo soy" is optional. The subject pronouns are optional because they are understood due to the way Spanish verbs are conjugated. Even without context, soy is clear because yo is the only possible pronoun. Without context, es can be ambiguous because it could be translated as he is (él es), she is (ella es), you are (usted es) or it is.

Maybe u madea mistake I put o the right answer andvthey told me it was wrong to
Could someone clarify why no se una nina, but no soy un nino? Thank you in advance!
can you explain your question, i dont get your example 'no se una niña' has no sense, 'se' it to know.
My question is basically about usage of "se" and "soy" is it related to gender like masculine - soy and feminine - se
verbs in spanish don't have gender.
Se is the second person of future
Soy is the first person of singular
Ok, it said the translation, "no soy nene" is good... What exactly is nene for my future reference?
synonym for boy, or child (as I forget the exact question right this second.)?
Is it wrong to say "Lo no un nino" ? Because "lo siento" means I am sorry, so doesn't "lo" mean I am?
I am not a boy: Yo soy no un nino is that not correct I am not Spanish so I do not know the grammatical rules for this answer, Some little tiny mistakes they should just let slide, because over all I got the correct answer........ they were just switched! :D
So no, can mean am? From my understanding the sentence looks like
Yo soy no es niño
It should be 'el' as it is a masculine word but 'un' matches it too. I am seriously confused.......
Got the translation correct as 'Yo no soy un niño', but we heard reflects 'No soy joven'. What does joven mean? Thinking juvenile. I realize they put alternate phrases in the results section. Just want clarity and to know if joven would be masculine/feminine.
Yes joven does mean juvenile and it is used as both masculine and feminine but you add "El" joven for masculine and "La" joven for feminine.
You need to give room for certain mistakes. I translated the sentence word by word correctly but i do not know the spanish grammatical rule. So i should get the answer correct with a tutorial
Why does this ask me to speak a translation when the negative construct has not yet been taught?
What is the difference between nene and nino because i said nene? And it said it was correct.
hi, i am.from venezuela my native language is spanish, you can say " yo no soy un niño" also you can say " no soy un niño" also " un niño no soy" hope helped you all

Hi. Can someone explain that "am" is "soy" and "not" is "no". Then why the translation is not "Yo soy no un nino". Thanks
I think the best way for me to say it(as I am no expert! just learning in fact), just because we can translate this spanish sentence word for word in english doesn't mean it's correct. Many years ago when I was first attempting spanish I was taught to always put the no before the verb. Soy being the verb here, we put the word no in front of it. I couldn't say with any certainty but I think spanish is rarely word for word translation. Hope it helps.
Building off of what delone86 said... The spanish verbs of grammar are sometimes different then those of english. In spanish, no goes before the verb.
I said "You no soy un nino" and it is telling me the translation is "No soy un nene"?
As one of the answers, it says Yo no soy un joven. I thought joven translated to young, so it would be "I am not young."
Joven can be an adjetive and a noun. "No soy un joven" is something like "I'm not a teen/teenager". I'm not young = No soy joven.
