It tells you several places. You can click on the word (it tells you that you peeked but does not count that against you since it is like cheating in solitair). On your lesson page if you scroll down to the bottom it tells you the verb tense endings for regular conjugated verbs. Nosotros/Nosotras take the root verb and complete it with mos (sometimes adding a vowel to the root). Yo the ending is o. You just have to keep practicing until it clicks.

Ok the verb is beber, to drink. It is an -er ending verb. When conjugating -er verbs in the present tense it should be this

Yo (I): -o (for example bebo) Tú (you): -es (for ex. bebes) Usted/Ello/Ella(a person,he,she, or "you" in the formal): -e (for ex. bebe) Nosotros (we): -emos (for ex. bebemos) Vosotros (y'all or you all, you probably wont need to worry about this): -éis (for ex. bebéis) Ustedes,ellos, ellas (them, them (masculine), them (feminine): -en (for ex. beben)

I still cannot tell when you do and do not require an artical - so why is this not "Nosotros bebemos el vino"

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/monoflo

"El vino" would be "the wine." The article "el" shows that you are talking about wine in its entirety, rather than talking about straight up "vino", which is just wine. The article makes a great difference in the sentence, from: We drink the wine, to We drink wine.

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Santi_Minstrel

Exactly as cyryan33 says. The only difference of use of article with English is when used as subject in expressions like

Water is needed to live.

Despite water is mentioned in a general form, in Spanish you need the article (as The water is needed to live)

https://www.duolingo.com/IncognitoBandito

Nosotras is used with feminine things. Nosotros is used with masculine things

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Santi_Minstrel

That is incorrect. The gender of the speakers is not related with the gender of the objects. Therefore, you may find the 4 possible combinations:

  • Nosotros tenemos el lápiz (we [not a group of only females] have the pencil)
  • Nosotras tenemos el lápiz (we [group of only females] have the pencil)
  • Nosotros tenemos la llave (we [not a group of only females] have the key)
  • Nosotras tenemos la llave (we [group of females] have the key)

This applies always. Hope it helps.

It does help in the grand scheme of learning, but i cant understand why it is being marked wrong for the first time here. Also, is there a word for a group of only men?

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Santi_Minstrel

Nosotras bebemos vino is a perfect translation since we can refer to women.

There is not an specific word for only men. It also accepts the mixed case

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Linda_from_NJ

Your first sentence was a masculine subject with a masculine object. Your second sentence was a feminine subject with a masculine object. Your third sentence was a masculine subject with a feminine object. Your fourth sentence was a feminine subject with a feminine object.

These sentences are good examples of the difference between the gender of words and the gender of pronouns.

When nosotros ,when nosotras?

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/amble2lingo

Hi kbraaksoy1.

Use "nosotrOs" when:
1. The group consists of all males,
2. The group consists of at least one male, or
3. The make-up of the group is unknown.

Use "nosotrAs" only when the group consists of all females.

In this sentence, it is impossible to know the gender of the group, so "nosotros" is probably the best choice. However, because there is no context here, I feel that "nosotras" should also be accepted (the group could just as well be all female!).

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/kbraaksoy1

Actually i am trying to ask is : we dont know about the gender of drinkers. So why nosotras is incorrect?

nosotros (masculine) is used when there is a group of people are a mix of both sex. (and of course when there is a masculine article)

It's kind of like when some people say men, they mean people of all sexes. For example, "All men are created equal." This doesn't just refer to males, but also to females.

Bebemos -> 1st person plural -> we Beben -> 3rd person plural -> they, you(pl.)

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Mariah.Anderson

Can someone please explain the representation of "mos" when added to words?

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/zlatko.gantchev

First off "-mos" is a suffix used on verbs only, not all words. In Spanish each verb has variations (conjugations) -- the verb's suffix changes depending on the subject(s) performing the action. For example, drinking:

  • to drink = beb-er
  • I drink = yo beb-o
  • you drink = tú beb-es
  • he/she drinks = usted/el/ella beb-e
  • they drink = ustedes/ellos/ellas beb-en
  • we drink = nosotros beb-emos

So each verb inherently describes the subject(s) via its suffix. Sidenote; this is why you can omit the subject itself when using verbs, for example, "They are drinking water" can be "Ellos beben agua" or just "Beben agua". Which is kind of neat :)

One last thing, there are three basic verb types, -er, -ar, and -ir. Their conjugations vary a little but are mostly similar. Writing them out a table helped me with memorization, check this one out: http://elmaestro.wikis.birmingham.k12.mi.us/file/view/ConjugationARERIR.png

Do u pronounce bebemos with a 'v'.. as in vevemos?

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/duvet_154

According to what I know, in spanish there isn't really much difference between the v and the b sounds.

I've heard some people indicate that you should pronounce both as a mix of "v" and "b", but I don't know I think it just doesn't matter. That's why many spanish speakers have trouble when writing words with "v" or "b" and end up using the wrong letter (for example, writing "obeja" instead or "oveja" (sheep) and things like that), because the use of "v" and "b" when writing seems almost arbitrary.

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Linda_from_NJ

Some people call it a "soft v."

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/KarinaCapsGal

You should pronounce it at the beginning of the word with a "v" but during a word, I think you should pronounce it as more of a "b". But not too strongly.

I am brand new to this, so what worked for me may not work for you. In my profile under settings you can turn the microphone on or off. I assume you have it on or you probably would not get asked to say something (I was not when I had it off). When you are asked to say something, you will have a control box asking if you will give permission to the program to use the microphone and camera. Give it permission. If that does not work, I am at a loss.
