Translation:Do you want me to become American, yes or no?
"do you want me to become an American, yes or no" : to put here "an" it`s really so huge mistake?
It's correct with or without "an." Either an adjective or a noun should be acceptable.
'do you want me to become an american' is a valid english sentence, but it's not a direct translation of the italian, and we're meant to be translating the italian sentences, not coming up with english sentences that mean roughly the same thing.
No, it's not a mistake. In fact, it's better. And at least as of October 2015, Duolingo accepted it as correct.
Normally DL requires questions to be posed as "Do you want ...........". Any ideas why this is like this?
Is that a threat? Like a kid running away to join the army? "I hate you. I might as well emigrate!"
Where's the subjunctive in this? Am I missing something? Help please!
Ignore above please; a month later & I realise my mistake! (This is learning in action!)
susannajmckay I believe it is subjunctive because of the : Do you want..... it is a wish, desire which takes the subjunctive. Can someone confirm this?
