We can start this night is not a sentence you would say in English, so I said we can start this evening and it was marked wrong. Annoyingly, We can start this night was one of DLs suggestions!

"We can start this evening" , as well? In English we don't say "this night" unless we're in Shakespeare. "Tonight", maybe.

'This night' is not current English. Sorry, Duolingo! This evening or tonight are both correct.

I said this evening & duo corrected me with 'this night' in english we would not say this. Either this evening or tonight, but not 'this night'

I said "We can come tonight" but it was marked wrong. Cannot "empezar" also mean "come"? Is there something in this sentence that clearly makes it "begin"?

Sorry, "empezar" means start or begin but is not "come" because come means "venir"

I wrote "We can start this tonight" and got it wrong?

'We can start this tonight' would be 'Podemos empezar esto/a esta noche. Yes, you would use 'This' twice, because there is no single Spanish word for 'Tonight' rather, you must express it using 'esta noche'.

I said "can we start tonight" but was marked wrong. How can you tell the difference between "can we" and "we can"?

"we can start this evening " IS correct ... it is EXACTLY the same as saying "we can start tonight" or "we can begin tonight " ... all are equal in English .

We can start this evening is still marked incorrect. :(
