Sorry for opening a thread here, but the "discuss"-button on exactly that sentence above did not work at all.

What I wanted to comment on it: As correct english translation only "Where are you going, to the bridge? / Where do you go, to the bridge?" is accepted.

But "mentek" means also "they went", so it is also a past form. Thats why "Where did they go to, to the bridge? / Where were they going to, to the bridge?" should be accepted as well.

I know, that this sentence might be part of a lesson, where the past forms not have been taught yet, but how should you know this later in a refreshing lesson?

After all, the reporting button worked at least ;-)
