Translation:What time do you finish school?
If 上班 is "go to work" while 下班 is "get off work", and 上学 is "go to school", is it possible to use 下学 for "to finish school" or is 放学 the only possibility?
There is also 下学 for “finish school”, but it is not so common as 放学.
It can also appear in the common phrase 上下学 (to and from school). e.g. 我每天走路上下学. “I walk to and from school every day.”
Some speakers will correct you if you really use "下学." As Mr.rM has mentioned, this is usually used in the fixed phrase 上下学. Why there is no such word is a common question from Chinese children :)
If it does, the 'what time' translated part wouldn't make sense in English. I was also wondering the same.
你几点放学？" What time do you finish school? What is the Chinese word to FINISH?
Duolingo is a bit too strict not allowing "will you" in some of these translations. I get emphasizing 會 and 要 as "will", but depending on context, the proper English translation will use "will".
No, I do not think so. I think this is not a possible response as 点 means hours, so it is impossible to confuse it with years. But that is only my lucky guess.
I wrote "What time are you let out of school?" and it's wrong. It's just another way of saying it! And I'm Chinese too!
