Both are possible and common.

Is one more often used in speech than written form?

星期日 sounds more formal.

what is wrong with "they eat noodles every sunday in the evening"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MartinCzechRep

Yeah - I do have the same question - why is it not accepted "They eat noodles every sunday in the evening"? Possibly someone of native speakers here could explain it? Thx ☺️

every Sunday they eat noodles

how come 个 is included after 每 when it's usually left out?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andrew-Lin

It's optional, you can keep it or omit it. But I myself will keep it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EquanimousLingo

Correctness. It's omission is just standard when obvious or during casual conversation.

Why is "They are eating noodles every Sunday evening." wrong? Would present progressive need a word like "now" to indicate the time?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dave168907

That could be a correct English sentence if they didn't used to eat noodles every Sunday evening but now they are doing so.

I have a question: If I used word "pasta" in previous lessons and it was OK, why I can´t used it here?
