"What time do you go to work?"
Translation:¿A qué hora vas al trabajo?
I put "tu vas" instead of just "vas" and it says its wrong.. this keeps happening on a lot of the questions and needs to be fixed because its technically right even if its not necessary to add it in. Sometimes its easier to remember the conjugation by putting the "tu" or whatever before.
zalamation & slantedslope, I think Dúo includes the preposition (at) because the Spanish phrases time questions as "At what hour (do you do this or that)?" instead of "What time do you (do this or that)? American English CAN say "At what hour does the concert start," but mostly we say it the shorter way, using "when."
Why is trabajo used and not trabaja. I thought trabajo refers to I work or my job.
I put 'tú vas' and it corrected me to 'te vas'. Why is it te instead of tú?
why do the word suggestions have 'vas a' but not 'vas al' if 'al' is the correct answer?
I don't know. Its glitching for me too, and giving me words that are obviously not the correct answer
It seems like either trabajar or trabajo could work here. In English is can be a verb or a noun as well. Also, the addition of tu seems gramatically correct as well.
I think someone else has answered this I believe that "to work" can mean the action of working, but then you can also go "to work", whereas "work" is now a noun
Maybe it should be made less ambiguous so we know how to respond
Hi, I am quite new to Spanish, and still get confused to as what the difference is between qué and cuál. I don't always know the difference and which one to use. Many thanks guys.
Argh! It keeps counting the answer wrong if I use "al" instead of "a," but clearly the most correct answer is "al."
If we choose to put "tu" in, would it be wrong and if not, should it go after "vas"?
Why al trabajo- to the work does not make since- to the job does r to work- but not to the work
Hi, JarvisJacq, I believe you said, "At what hour you go you work?" Spanish doesn't use two conjugated verbs in the same sentence phrase, so that's a clue that Duo wanted the noun el trabajo, which means "work/the job/the workplace" here.
So if you use the verb ir, which means "to go," it conjugates to second person with vas, & means you go + to work/to the job, so you need a + el which must be contracted to al for the following masculine noun. (If you said "you go to the beach," you could not use the contraction, & would say Vas a la playa. The same rule applies to plurals, BTW! No contractions except for masculine, singular - a + el = al and de + el = del. (Example: "After arriving at the ports by ships, the containers go to the trains." "...to the trains" would be ...van a los trenes. Hope that helps!
