There is a table, there is a computer on the desk, there is a bed, there are green pillow and blanket on the bed

July 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/writchie4

There is a table[.] [T]here is a computer on the desk[.] [T]here is a bed[.] [T]here are [a] green pillow and [a] blanket on the bed[.]

Esta se llama un "run-on sentence" en inglés. Hay que separar la oración con puntos, o usar la conjunción "and" para juntar las frases independientes. ("There is a table. There is a computer" o "There is a table and there is a computer", por ejem).

Las cosas singulares en inglés siempre requieren un determinante. No es gramatical decir simplemente "there is green pillow" sin incluir el artículo "a".

Otra nota: Cuando tienes dos o mas cosas singulares en una lista, los expertos no están de acuerdo en si es correcto usar "there is" o "there are". En una situación informal, "there is" está bien, pero algunos expertos dicen que "there are" siempre se usa cuando hay una lista en contextos formales. Para mí, "there is" suena mejor cuando la primera cosa en la lista es singular.

There is a room and there are some objets. The bed is next to the dressing table. There are some toys on the floor. There is a table. There are some clothing. There are a disk, a newspaper, a computer, a teddy bear and some much.

July 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/writchie4

There is a room and there are some [objects]. The bed is next to the dressing table.

Un "dressing table" también se llama un "vanity".

There are some toys on the floor. There is a table. There [is] some clothing.

"Clothing" es una cosa incontable, y por eso, usamos "is". También es posible decir "There are some clothes".

There are a disk, a newspaper, a computer, a teddy bear and some much.

Esta parte no tiene sentido. Sería algo como "...y unos mucho" en español. Creo que quisiste decir "and much more".

July 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/FairlandHippie

  • ... and many more things.

July 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/writchie4

There is coffee [spilled] on the table. There is a fan under the table. The bed is between [] the table and the cabinet with [a] mirror.

"Cabinet with a mirror" sería correcto gramaticalmente, pero normalmente llamamos ese mueble un "vanity", o un "dressing table".

Y "between" no lleva el "to". Como en español, no decimos "entre a esto y eso".

    There is a ridiculous amount of stuff scattered on the floor. There is a messy bed, and a drawer that someone forgot to close. Additionally there is a mess on the desk, and, most notably, spilt coffee.

    There ought to be someone getting in trouble for leaving such a mess.

    In terms of household maintenance, there is what appears to be a hole in the wall, which probably ought to be repaired.

      I see a room pretty messy.

      There is a desk that contains some articles, such us ; a notebook,papers and a cup of coffee spilled.

      Next to the desk there is a bed covered with a green bedspread and pillow.

      Under the desk there is a fan.

      On the floor are several things: a soccer ball, a teddy bear, a trash basket, a toy car, a tennis racket, a personal mirrow, a newspaper and a lot of stuffs.

      Near the bed there is a vanity with a mirrow, a makeup set: two lipsticks and a little box of face powder.

      On the wall near the bed is hanging clothes.

      At the end of the room is a TV, whose furniture has an open drawer.

      I see a [pretty messy] room.

      Los adjetivos van antes del sustantivo en inglés.

      There is a desk that contains some [things] such [as]: a notebook, papers and a [spilled] cup of coffee.

      "Articles" funciona en esta frase, pero me suena un poco formal. "Things/items" sería mejor. También, el uso de "contains" es gramatical, pero es un poco raro con un desk sin cajones/gavetas. Sería más natural decir algo como "...that has some items on it such as:"

      On the floor are several things: a soccer ball, a teddy bear, a trash basket, a toy car, a tennis racket, a personal [mirror], a newspaper and a lot of [other] [stuff].

      "Stuff" es una palabra incontable.

      Near the bed there is a vanity with a [mirror] [and] a makeup set [with] two lipsticks and a little [container] of face powder.

      [There are clothes hanging] on the wall near the bed.
