Translation:I eat dinner at 7 in the evening.
"I eat at ..." is accepted as an answer. Dinner/meal/food is not required.
No because evening is specified in the Chinese sentence with 晚上.
One must use:
7:00/7 in the evening
7:00/7 at night.
I think the word evening needs to be emphasized because you can eat at 7am or pm.
"I eat at 7 in the evening" works. You don't have to have the word "dinner" in the sentence.
The specific term that means dinner, 晚饭 (pronounced wǎnfàn), isn't actually used in the sentence. The parts that indicate that the meal is dinner is "晚上" and "饭", night and meal, respectively, because dinner is generally a meal eaten at night.
Yeah, but dinner is implied, so it's odd that the answer requires it.
The answer no longer requires "dinner" to be correct... assuming it ever did.
"I have a meal at 7PM is incorrect." I guess evening is required and can't be implied by PM
7 p.m. is accepted. Duo may not like the use of "have" instead of "eat". Or maybe they updated the accepted answers since your post.
It does just answered correctly but didnt include dinner and was marked wrong
this one has many ways to translate it, the list of correct translations are a bit too linear
I wrote "I eat dinner at 7 o'clock in the evening" which should be correct unless my Chinese has degraded so much that
The translation I was given was "I eat rice at 7 pm," but "eat rice" is 吃米饭, whereas "eat food" should just be 吃饭.
DuoLingo marked "I eat at 7:00 at night." as incorrect and said I should've typed "I eat at 7:00 pm." 晚上 means night/evening, so how was my answer incorrect?
too rigid with translation--I answered I eat dinner at 7 o'clock in the evening----wrong! In fact too rigid with many of the translations in this section--I had a Chinese friend check who agreed
I just said 'I eat at 7 in the evening' and it got marked correct, so it is an optional choice to put Dinner or not because people would already know that you are talking about dinner because of 晚上 and 饭, but it can mean Dinner or Evening meal, whichever way you like it will still be a meal in the evening and people would know what you are talking about.
I ate at 7 in the evening should also be accepted and the word dinner should not be required as it never says 吃晚饭 but instead only says 吃饭
I'm fairly nocturnal so it's good "dinner" isn't mandatory now as that certainly would not come to me by default just related to 7pm. :p
