Would "The children look at the bear" be okay? I was also wondering about "The children watch the bear." (for the sentence "los ninos ven el oso")
"ver" is see and "mirar" is look at -- sometime equal, sometimes not, just as in English
Same here. I would have thought that without more context, kids and children is also correct. A Duolingo bug?
Not entirely sure they are pronouncing it correctly here. I think people very fluent in Spanish would be able to tell the correct pronunciation, since it is subtle. I took a year of college Spanish and there I also had trouble deciphering the difference. "V" is pretty close to "b" in most dialects, almost always a mix of the two sounds. It is one of the more difficult things to practice.
To me it seems the V is pronounced slightly like a B, whereas the B itself seems more emphatic. I might be wrong, though.
i keep getting these wrong, cause i keep trying to say it back in a way that would make sense in english....in english i would say, the boys see a bear
I always ue ven aqui to tell people to come here and on here they use it as see
Ven is both the third person plural for ver (to see) and the singular imperative of venir (to come).
So "come" and "ven" are the same thing in Spanish? Because i just had one ask me what "come" meant and it said "ven". But what if i wanted to say "Come see the bear?" I am so confused.
"Come" is the second pers., sing., conjugation of the verb "comer" (to eat).
"Ven" is the second pers., sing. imperative form of the verb "venir" (to come); and the third pers., plural, conjugation of the verb "ver" (to see).
If you want to say "Come see the bear" you write: "Ven a ver el oso".
ven alternative translation are arrive! and come! would used as ordering actions and using arrive! used in a sentence as " ive arrive!" ?
