Duolingo is not accepting my “like” so what is the verb for “like” then? Frustrating!!!
That is the verb to like; I'm having the same problem. Like is correct in this situation.
I've just put "like" in again (knowing it will be wrong) to leave another thought. We MIGHT actually only like the boy, and may not actually LOVE him. Since the sentence would be the same in either case, both options are therefore legitimate and should be marked as correct.
Apparently aimer means love when used with people and pets as objects, like when used with things
The verb for love (or adore - which is essentially the same) if there is a specific one is "adorer" so why does "aime" (without "bien" - which would work) not count as like.
Like the previous posters I am confused.
I wrote "Nous aimons les garcons." Plural and singular sound quite the same and here I cannot notice the difference
It's too much Duolingo?? mistakes become more frequent and i'm wasting time.you are contradicting yourself by teaching and rejecting in the same time?
I agree with other comments "We like the boy" should be accepted as the same verb is used for both. If not how do you say " I like the boy?
When I Googled "We like the boy" it said "Nous aimons le garcon". When I Googled "We love the boy" it said "Nous aimons le garcon." LIKE should be accepted as well as love!
Inconsistent within the same lesson. In one sentence, it's wrong to write 'love' for the verb aimer. In the next, it's wrong to write 'like'. If it's aimons bien for like, and aimons for love, let's be consistent. Less a hassle on the computer but annoying as hell in the app to be locked out for typing the correct response and not guessing which answer the app wants.
