In my experience, we often say "plate" instead of "dish." So, in my humble opinion, "are you trying this plate" should be accepted.
You're at a party where there's a buffet. The hosts have prepared food from all over the world, and you're wondering what most of it is: ostrich? termites? worms? kangaroo? Your friend asks you: "Are you trying this dish?"
in my experience -- Australia / England / New Zealand, it's more common to ask "are you going to try..." or "are you interested in trying ..", or "would you like to try..." rather than "are you trying" but who am I to ask -- only been a native English speaker for over 60 years
I think "taste" is a better translation. Perhaps I will "try" it next time and see what happens. I've been speaking English for almost 70 years btw.
Same. I am not sure if this is an artefact of Duolingo teaching us sentences in known tenses, or if that would really be the way native Spanish speakers would say it. Spanish speakers, anyone?
For me dish is a plate without food when it is full or contain something like a crab it is a plate. I could be wrong
This feels like another case of present being used where the present progressive ("¿Usted esta probado este plato?") makes more sense (it's happening right now, not in general). Anyone know which would be more appropriate here?
I agree with some of the other posts. "Are you yrying this plate" should be an acceptable answer. In English, plate and dish can both refer to the meal on the plate/dish.
In other lessons, this would be "can you try this dish", but that doesn't work here. BTW, as a native American English speaker, dish makes more sense than plate.
I'm not sure what other lessons you're referring to. But I don't see any reason to include "can" here.
I agree that "Are you trying this plate?" should be accepted. Expression very commonly used in US.
I wrote, "Did you try this dish?" It was wrong, obviously. How would I say "did you try" instead of "are you trying"?
Lmao my husband is next to me and he immediately responded "No, el prueba la comida"
