Translation:I was at the same place as my friend.
One definition of "estar" is "to stay" and "estuve" is the past tense so that is " I stayed" googling "I was at the same place as" gives 56,800,000 results and "I stayed at the same place as" gives 4,320,000 results. Either "stayed" is a very common error here or it is just used less. I'm guessing it is perfectly okay.
It's wrong because this is just one instance of being in a place and implies nothing about staying there for any period of time.
your response is it based on your grammatical experience or is it a matter of how one interprets the sentence?????
or, in other words, you would use the imperfect to say "I stayed" in a place
Stayed in spanish is = Permanecer , Que es como para decir que estuviste alli y nunca te fuiste
To stay is "quedarse." Where I stayed would be "me quedé." Luckily we're not working on reflexive verbs yet.
When you click conjugate it just gives the present tense ...It would be helpful when we are learning the past tense to conjugate the past tense
I may be wrong, but from my own experience in DL it seems that they give you the conjugations when the verbs are irregular, but don't when it's ordinary regular conjugations.
Yo hablo español, y hay ciertas palabras que aqui en duolingo no las pronuncian bien, Por ejemplo la palabra "Su" la pronuncian como So, y eso es incorrecto
Hola! Hablas castillano? Porqué, para mi, comprendo el castillano (hablado) sin problemas, pero en DL se habla latinoamericano, y a veces tengo verdaderamente problemas para comprender la pronunciación.
Sí, de verdad.. se escribe castellano, un error pequeño de mí :-) DL significa DuoLingo ;-)
Estuve del mismo lugar. Maybe. I just use de when in doubt. But I am sure to be wrong. Graham just notice you have one day of practice more than me. I am now going to watch for you. (-:
Estuve means I was AND I stayed according to what it says when you tap on the word so why does it say I STAYED in the same place as my friend is wrong? Please fix this error.
I still think "I stayed in the same place as my friend" is a valid translation.
