They are both the right word. It just depends upon what country that the source of Spanish comes from. It is like the word for car can be carro, coche, auto, or vehiculo depending on the country. If you want to drive that car in one country it can be conducir but in another country it is manejar.

Thank you Ben but that wasn’t my question:) That was an example he/she gave. My question was emparedado or bocadillo for sandwich - which one is used in Spain? It seems Duolingo teaches Spanish that is not used in Spain.

Bocadillo is used in Spain only (with this meaning), Emparedado is used... nowhere? The common word is "sándwich" or variants like "sánguche" (Chile, colloquial), "sángüich", etc.

There is no fault in that sentence. Maybe it has a problem with "al", report it. And try with "Ellas no encuentran el oso". It seems like some variants don't accept "a" (and then "al") for non-humans.

"El" is "the". "Al" is the short form of "a el", more or less like "to the" (usual English translations is simply "the").

Thank you. Emparedado is used in Duolingo ... so how good is Duolingo if it teaches words that are wrong ...

Emparedado does mean sandwich. As far as i'm aware its more commonly used in Mexico than the rest of latin america. But its not wrong

los posesivos pueden ser un poco confusos pero no te preocupes yo te ayudare solo dime que exactamente quieres que te explique. Soy de mexico y tu?

I am able to grasp atleast 50-60% what you've said , and later took the help of google translator to find out the entire meaning,.......I've just understood one sentence completely.......soy de mexico y tu?.......i am from mexico and you?..........soy de India.........es cierto?

7 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/speshnz

They're basically saying possessives can be confusing but dont worry, they will help you if you tell them exactly what you want them to explain.

and yeah, Soy de mexico y tu is Im from Mexico and you

and Soy de India is correct :)

¿Cuántos años es el?........Can I use this for how old is he?

7 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/speshnz

Literally translated that sentence makes sort of sense in english

Cuántos (how many) años (years) es el (is he)

How ever in spanish you dont have people how old they are, you literally say "How many years do you have" Or in this case "How many years does he have"

So instead of ¿Cuántos años es el? You should say ¿Cuántos años tiene él?
