i put this: 'whatsmore, it's not a main road' < is this wrong?

April 5, 2013


Whatsmore isn't really used in English that much so while it isn't wrong as the idea is correct, besides, or moreover work better.

April 18, 2013


A small correction -- the correct way to write the expression is "What's more"

August 30, 2013


Not sure if "by the way" is wrong or whether I got marked wrong for saying "main road" instead of "main highway" or both.

major road is a regualr expression, as would be "A road"

February 20, 2013


I was marked wrong for 'Besides, it is not a main street.' I've been using 'street' for 'carretera' on DuoLingo this whole time. Shouldn't this be accepted?

I agree with tarynsb2. It doesn't make sense!

I used "highway" instead of "main highway", as a highway is per definition a main road.

Anyway for ademas?

February 13, 2019


I put "Besides, there is no main road". Same thing

to me, a non native English speaker who might be wrong, "there is no main road" sounds like there are only alleys or badly constructed road or things like that in an area, while "it is not a main highway" is a description towards a specific road. Además, there is would be hay and the whole sentence would become "Además, hay no carretera principal." But, like I said at the beginning I might be wrong, so it would be great if there are native speakers (English or Spanish) to help us out :)

You need to use hay to say that something exists (or doesn't). Estar and ser are both copulas, they're basically used to describe or give information about a known subject. So in this sentence, es means you're describing a particular road

Nevertheless for además?

July 22, 2014


Besides, Moreover, Additionally, etc. would all do the job much better.

October 8, 2014


Main route in english often means road.

September 24, 2014


Further instead of furthermore doesn't work? Ugh, sometimes this system is so frustrating.

November 23, 2014


i put she is not a good principal :>

November 11, 2015


Besides it's not main street

Was rejected, but is it wrong?

February 28, 2019


Why can it not be "Also" instead of besides?

April 6, 2019


"Also" was accepted.

April 25, 2019


in English, "anyway" is synonymous to "besides". I speak standard American English, and I would use "Anyway" more than "Besides" in this sentence.
