Yes. "Eles estão abrindo o portão = They are opening the gate" // "Eles abrem o portão = They open the gate"
How i am going to know that They means elas instead of eles? big confussion of Duolingo in this one.
It should accept both eles and elas for this sentence.
i think they are accepting it now, but couple months back they were pushing more for elas (probably because eles is more generic, i'm not sure.)
Doesn't 'eles esta abrindo o portao' translate as 'they are opening the gate'?
Yep, duolingo is mixing progressive and simple present wrongly
Where is the "My answer should NOT have been accepted box", it accepted my incorrect abram :-)
Why does portão carry o infront instead of a
It's masculine. "A porta" - 'the door', but "o portão" - 'the gate'.
