Hi Xiomara, puedes decir: gafas, lentes, anteojos. En Argentina decimos lentes o anteojos, en España dicen: gafas. Greetins :)
they should really get like a census of Castilian Spanish speaking countries and use the most popular terms for words like this
I believe Duolingo doesn't really count punctuation heavily. For me, it never has counted me wrong or "almost correct" because of punctuation.
Hmm, it must have fixed it by now. I've been using it for years, but though I haven't used it in a while, it's never counted me wrong for punctuation and/or accent use
Hi norkka, está bien, puedes decir: lentes, anteojos, (it is more common in latinoamérica) y gafas (Spain). Greetins :)
While slang is common... please do note that if you say "I need my specks" people are going to be like "Your specks of WHAT?"
Hi JasmineFlower06, la pronunciación es correcta. Hablo español. Greetins :)
Not everywhere. In various countries in Central and South America as well as in Spain (4th column), gafas is used to refer to the eyesight-correcting type of eyewear.
Can we use 'blanca' instead of 'blancas'? since 'glasses' here refers to a single object, not multiple objects. In the example, it translates to 'No, my glasses are not whiteS'. Correct me.
Like with the English "glasses", gafas is a plural noun as well, so the adjective needs to be pluralised, too.
i put the correct solution but it said that i was incorrect that is ridiculos
Well, if you put in a word, I'm sure they'll fix it. It didn't count me wrong.
Anteojos, with 'e'. It's in front of the eyes, not against eyes. :)
Anteojos can refer to binoculars and glasses. The latter meaning used primarily in South America.
It's kind of similar to how "fedora", "cap", and plain old "hat" mean the same thing, but depending on where you are, it's said differently, unless in reference to binoculars, as Ryagon pointed out. Make sense?
