Translation:How do I get to your school?
54 CommentsThis discussion is locked.
The literal translation is something like: "To your school, how to go?"
There will be several ways to make this translation grammatically correct in English. One possibility is "How do I get to your school?" because (presumably) the speaker is asking in order to go there as well.
But that is only one option. As AbunPang said, this sentence can ALSO be translated as "How do you get to your school?" Without any context for this sentence, both translations are equally correct.
Even though Duo uses 到 probably as a lesson topic, I think
你怎么去（你的）学校？ seems fine to me since the translation does not use "walk"
===EDIT=== 2020.7.25 I take that back. 怎么走 means "how to go" (asking for directions) 怎么去 means "by what means to go" (bus, train, taxi, etc)
I think 去「到」你的学校怎么走？ is fine as another form of Duo's question
Then again, perhaps I am wrong once more
