Translation:You ask the teacher.
Well in english you refers to a single person or a group of people in case you don't know ;-)
So many exercises uses "you guys" for 你们 and now it doesn't accept it as an answer.
wouldn't "you ALL ask" be "你们多问"?
as opposed to you guys, 你们, which is plural but not necessarily all inclusive
"You all", "y'all" and "you guys" are colloquialisms for the plural 2nd person (you). In the UK you'll hear "you(r) lot" and in Australia "youse". By using one of these for 你们 it can help learners see the difference.
You will hear youse in America also. Youse,youse guys, you guys, y'all, all of you, you lot,yinz,you'uns,etc
Um i dont think we as Australians ever use 'youse' but we actually use you guys or folks or you people (really depends on who you are talking to!) Anyway, duolingo seems to be very unhelpful in these kinds of translation problems.
You is the proper translation for 你们. "You guys" and "You all" is just heavily used slang which if you report will probably be accepted as alternate suggestions.
Inconsistent. In most exercises Duolingo requires "guys" to indicate "you" as plural. Here it marks it in correct (I only put it to follow Duolingo's pattern). Please stay consistent, Mandarin is hard enough as it is ;)
The sentence is directed at several people: “You guys, y’all ask the teacher.”
Because 你们 means you all!
你 just means YOU!
In this sentence "你们问老师。 They're not ONLY talking to one person. They're saying for everybody to ask the teacher.
Man good thing there is a way to flag these incorrect Duolingo question things
Just wondering, is this sentence a statement or a command? How would one say 'you ask the teacher' as a command as opposed to a simple statement? Is there any difference in Chinese?
My guess would be the context and the implication somebody puts on it. Like in English "You ask the teacher" could be a statement or a command, but by adding "I want you to ask the teacher" or saying it with more force can make it a command. That's just my guess though, there might be a word or character that suggests it's a command.
On Mobile, there are multiple words to choose from, and there is no "all" for 们.
I can only type "You ask the teacher". There is no "all" bubble to put.
