In the previous lesson לעתים קרובות is translated as "often" but here it's "rarely". Why the difference?
Report both. Seldom is closer (and better than rarely) since it implies it happens not much, whereas occasionally is closer to "sometimes"
Literally לעיתים רחוקות means "in far apart times"
Yes I agree. Occasionally should not be accepted here but seldom definitely should.
Occasionally should be accepted. Why? Because what if the occasion that you do eat meat happens only once a year. For instance, Pesach.
Seldomly is such a weird word. Had to check that it is real English. I would say 'seldom'
Words like "rarely, often, usually... " have to be in second place to construct a proper english sentence. The incorrect use is applied in spoken English.
so, "frequently" and "rarely" can be constructed by combining "le'itim" and "krovot/rekhukot"... Anyway, what is the meaning of "la'at" (לעת), and why we use the plural form here?
Time (as in "the amount of time", not as in "the number of times".), so literally "for close times" "for far away times".
I suffer a strange "bug" in this 3rd lesson in the topic Adverbs. It seems that the phrases with "שוב" and "/לעתים נדירות" or "רחוקות" didn't appear in my app in the smartphone, but just in the computer.
The first time when I did this lesson in the cell phone, I found those words in the practice without being studied them first, which was surprising. Later I realized that they were suppposed to be learned in this lesson, and in fact they are in duolingo.com in the computer.
I don't think you can anymore since the change to the crowns system but I expect level 2 will repeat the same words in a different way.
You can quit a lesson right before it ends! Then you have to do it all over again...and like that you may do all of the exercises except the last one one more time!
You can download the old version and it is possible to repeat the lesson you want.
Here is the link of the last version where it was possible to choose the lesson one wanted:
I wrote "I eat meat once in a while" and it was marked wrong. Is it actually wrong?
