Diretor, must be an option to include Principal while thinking about a school!
I tried principal in one sentence and it was correct. I used it in this one (4 sentences later) and it was marked wrong. I'm reporting it.
Is the 'do' here a contraction of 'de + o' ??? Plz correct me if I am wrong
Why does it not accept "leader", as this was the translation given in the other sentences?
"Boss" fits when you're talking in general about someone above you in your work hierarchy... "Director" is a specific post or role.
Now, «diretor» is correct orthography for European Portuguese as well. If we don't pronounce it, we don't spell it anymore either. :)
Does "diretor" require "do" instead of the article "o" here because it is the direct object of the verb?
No. The verb «gostar» always requires the preposition «de» after it. Since the article «o» comes after the preposition «de», they contract to «do».
