"You are closing the bag."
Translation:Tú cierras la bolsa.
When would you say this? Don't misunderstand, I'm not saying that I can't think of an instance when this would be said. If a director was instructing an actor in a play or a movie.
You're upstage left.
You're closing the bag.
The door opens stage right.
Frank walks in carrying the shotgun from the mantle.
But seriously folks how often are we directing plays? Or acting as gamemaster in a role playing game? In most circumstances the person closing the bag is aware that they are doing so. And don't need us to inform them.
And it's not just this sentence it seems that every other sentence in the duolingo spanish class is a declarative statement to the person who is doing the thing we're telling them they're doing.
I am wondering if this is a feature of duolingo or of spanish and in either case why it's happening?
