"February is not a month of the summer."
Translation:Febrero no es un mes del verano.
Why do we have no "el" starting this sentence, but previously we had "el invierno"? What is the rule about the article preceding the month?
I found this reference
All of the names for months are masculine: el enero, el febrero, etc. It usually isn't necessary to use the el except when giving specific dates.Note also that the names of the month are not capitalized in Spanish.
Now I'm thinking when would we possibly use it. I thought maybe when its an object but I doubt that happens. So leave it out and you reduce the risk of being wrong.
El Día, La Semana, El Mes, El Año. Day month and year are masculine but week is feminine.
You are lucky we had snow here today in Western Canada, great skiing however. How would you say "you are lucky" 'tienes suerte' and snow 'nieve' ?
Is it weird to say "El febrero no es un mes..." rather than "Febrero..."? It was marked as wrong, but I'm not sure what is the difference in connotation.
I think they want you to know that 'el' isn't necessary and it isn't common for when referring to 'months'.
if i make the mistake of not translating but use the same language, why not give me the opportunity to change it to Spanish rather than calling it incorrect. I get the idea that following directions is critical, but my main concern is learning more Spanish!
Cuál es "es", no "está? Also, sorry if I phrased that question wrong... I am trying!
I think you did phrase that incorrectly. If you'll ask in English, I'll try to answer the question as well as help you phrase it correctly. The thing is, I'm not sure what you meant to ask.“
