Translation:She has some relation with that group.
I agree - 'she has some relation with that group' doesn't make any sense in English. It should be 'some relations' or 'relationships' or something like that.
Okay, so I've had it drilled into me that "qualche" with the singular noun is translated as a plural in English, and now Duolingo doesn't accept "relationships" in translation. Not to mention that this is obscure, to say the least - unless the speaker is being catty or nonchalant.
I said "she has some connection to that group" and was marked wrong. It isn't wrong. They need better translators.
Yes, it is. We stole it from the French, but English steals TONS of vocabulary! You'll find it in any dictionary. It's often used politically, often personally: a special rapport between the US and UK; establishing rapport with his students. However, Duo won't accept it. Hmmppf!!!
Yes it is - you use it in the sense of having an instinctive bond or connection with somebody. The "t" isn't pronounced, presumably because it's from French??
I used "relationship" and, despite it being in the accompanying alternatives, and being correct according to my dictionary, it not allowed. "Relationship" seems better to me.
I keep hearing 'lei mi ha qualche rapporto...' in the fast version. Is it just me? ( and yes I know that wouldn't make sense)
This is a bad translation but it is hard to report bad translations as there is no box to do so. There is nothing wrong with the Italian, just the translation. Any ideas?
I agree. If you are clicking on the boxes, rather than typing, the word you can choose is "relation", which is rubbish, unless it's another variety of English- is that good US English, anybody?
I'd say it should be "rapport" or "relationship" or "connection" or something like that, and there is nowhere to report that, other than saying that the dictionary hints are wrong.
Click the microphone and say: "Lei ha qualche rapporto con quel gruppo." Then laugh.
My answer was identical to the one you gave but was marked incorrect. Why was that?
This is a first. I typed in my answer and it was marked wrong. But when i compare the two, they match exactly! And now i can't pass the unit because it wont accept the right answer.
