"¿Ya compraron ustedes los vinos?"
Translation:Did you guys already buy the wines?
'Wine' is the same singular and plural in English if referring to an unspecified wine - a glass of wine, two glasses of wine, ten bottles of wine. If you are specifying a wine you may say - I bought two different French wines; Unspecified - I bought two bottles of French wine.
For this sentence, I think both wine and wines should be accepted. Wine can be either uncountable as in your examples or countable.
I thought 'ustedes' was a formal form of address - 'guys' sounds far too informal!
Agree and very annoying! Duo! Watch your language! I may be old fashioned but was brought up to limit the "you guys" phrase, especially in writing.
This is what I used to think as well however I've seen several sources say that only 'usted' implies formality... not 'ustedes'. This still feels weird to me though.
In Spain maybe, but in many Latin American countries 'vosotros' is not used so 'ustedes' is used in both informal and formal situations.
This is a new thing Duo is doing (translating Ustedes as guys). It feels a little weird to me as traditionally Ustedes was the plural form for 'you'. I prefer the word 'chicos' for 'guys' however Spanish is not my native language so take that with a grain of salt.
"did you already buy the wine" should work, add duo. "wines" is not correct. Have some common sense
Yes... 'compraron' is 3rd person plural past tense of 'comprar' (to buy).
Edit However, you would say 'Did you already bought...' in English so it doesn't work in this case.
Agreed that "buy the wine" is correct in English and should be accepted by DL. They've done this same thing with "fruits" too.
If you say 'the wines', I think that is asking about various ones (say the red and the white) that would go with different things. Either wine or wines should be fine.
Duo started using the terrible 'you guys' to differentiate 'ustedes' from other words meaning 'you'. Poor choice on their part I think. Just translate 'ustedes' as 'you' and you'll be fine.
