I'm having trouble hearing the sound of the 'g' in this word. Is it a 'g' sound, or more of a 'y' sound?
The recording is a bit strange, but in many varieties of Peninsular Spanish the "g" sound is not quite the same as in English; it's a little further back in the throat, and the air is not completely stopped (as it is in English).
The "lady" does sound odd when she speaks "paga", but it is pronounced as a "g" sound.
yarjka- it sounds near the GA of garage.
With the sentence "Sí, yo pago," the answer could be "Yes, I will pay." But in this one, "Ella paga" can only mean "she pays" rather than "she will pay." Can anyone explain why? Thank you!
For some reason im hearing an "l" sound. To me its sounds like she's saying " ella palga" which I thought might be a word that I wasnt familiar with haha
exactly! it was so frustrating
Why can't it be "she is paying"? Is only "she pays" correct?
She is paying is a gerund (uses -ing) and the spanish version of that is -ando. She is paying translates to Ella esta pagando
I also thought that "she is paying' was correct.
for what she has done.... Making the duolingo talking bit harder!
There appears to be a business transaction eternally happening- all I can say is that soon this lady isn't going to have any friends because she never pays for lunch.
she pays dun dun dun :)
Yeah, cant quite hear it either.
She says "paga" so bad.
i find it hard hearing ''ella'' i hear eya. help
because in Spanish you say the double l like a y
She pays off is another translation for Ella paga, so why isn't it right?
According to the suggestions, it is. Let's wait and hope for an expert to answer this away.
boi its a date the man supposed to pay..feminists please dont reply like honestly most girlswould like a guy to take out his wallet and pay
She will pay is also a valid translation isn't it? A previous question 'Por Favor, yo pago' was translated as Please, I will pay.
