Such a beautiful word.
It's interesting that the speaker here clearly pronounces the "v" in "primavera" as an English "v" sound. I don't recall hearing that pronunciation anywhere else on Duolingo. Elsewhere a "v" is consistently pronounced with a soft English "b" sound.
Spring should be an acceptable translation.
Why can't we use springtime? It's basically the same thing.

In english we would say in the spring or spring not the spring.

Is springtime not acceptable?
Not for me, but I might suggest it should be
Does this also count for spring as in the ones in your couch?
Springtime is acceptable to English speakers
would a spring be called primavera if it was a spring like a warm pond?
She said to type what I hear. She said, «La primavera,» and I heard, “The spring.” I think that is progress! :-D (But it was, as expected, marked incorrect). :-(
...trompeteraa ya llegooo!!
Guys, I think we are fine with just "The spring." and "Spring." We don't need every translation.
