"When is the soccer game?"
Translation:¿Cuándo es el partido de fútbol?
I answered with "es" knowing wholeheartedly that it's correct, but my brain doesn't fully get it... Why is it not està?
I'm also wondering about this, I suspect it's because asking 'when' something is ... is very concrete?
For example, when asking "When is christmas?" the date doesn't change, so I presume we'd use es instead of está cause its not something that can change.
This was hard to put into words lol
here and often through the program when I make a small error the 'correct' answer given is not at all what the answer is here. for this one the suggested correct answer is "¿Cuándo es el juego futbolístico?"
'Soccer' and 'football' are both spelled as 'futbol' in Spanish. In English, they're two completely different words, but in Spanish it's the same. So, from my inference, the difference is the accented 'u'. I don't know which is which, accented or unaccented, but at least I could tell you why the word may be accented or not. I only commented now because it seems there was never an answer to this, even 6 months later :*
Why partido de fútbol. Why game of soccer when that the question isn't worded that way?
There needs to be a way to undo placing a word...why isn't there? I knew I had a mistake but couldn't fix it.
