The use of 'una'
Why do they say, 'No tengo coche', without the word 'una' But they do include it with 'No tengo una bicicleta'
ie: I do not have car....... I do not have a bicycle.
Both should follow the same pattern: without the indefinite article. (Unless you're trying to stress the number, as in: "No tengo una bicicleta, tengo tres.")
Thank you Ornithopter, so Duolingo have got it wrong again! I was enjoying this course but there are too many indisputable mistakes in their answers which is so annoying and putting me off studying.
It sounds weird to say "I have car" in Spanish. If something is countable and you have only one it's usual to say "I have a car". The exception though is when you're answering a question:
- Can you go with us?
- I don't have car.
I'm a native Portuguese speaker which is very similar to Spanish.?
