They have similar meanings but no. If you say poner it means you will put the object anywhere in the suitcase. If you say colocar it means you will place the object in a specific place in the suitcase so it won't create a mess.
I hope that clears your doubts.
So that nice friend of mine can find the package after you have been through customs and give you your money!
If DL still doesn't accept luggage, then it should be reported. I will do so if I get this sentence again. Baggage, luggage, suitcase - all the same in my part of the world.
❤❤❤❤❤❤, Duolingo. I can very well put "HIM" instead of "IT" into your damn suitcase!
You are technically right and in this case the voice sounds very assertive. However no one's ever going to guess that you're going to put someone in a suitcase and if you were to use that same expression, you could lie to them without technically lying to them.
A public forum that attracts children as well as adults from all religions is not a good place to use profanity.
You are right and have a good point, but seeing as he hasn't responded in over 10 months, your words may be falling on deaf ears. Sorry.
I'm just wondering why are there so many "going to" in this lesson and a few of the "will". Both are used to express in the future but I'm just curious how all these work. Are there some Spanish verbs that cannot be conjugated to the "will form"?
I don't pretend to know DL's intent; however, for me, as a beginner, it is much easier to learn "voy a [any infinitive] than to learn the future tense for every verb. I will focus on learning pure future tense after I can express myself in past and present - and by then I will be studying more advanced courses than is offered in DL.
daniel- I think that all verbs can have a future tense, like : lo colocaré en tu maleta. Yo comeré en dos minutos.
Could someone please explain the difference between "colocar" and "poner"? Or is there any difference at all?
A previous commenter answered this question, so I'm answering using their knowledge and not necessarily out of my own personal experience--the difference seems to be that "colocar" means something is being placed in a specific location whereas "poner" means it's just being thrown in your suitcase, in a sense. I'd see this as the difference between the verbs "put" and "place" in English.
Hi, I'm a Spanish speaker. We use colocar and poner indistinctively
I answered "I'm going to put it into your suitcase" and duolingvo didn't like the translation :(
I and the people I know (all English) use the word "case" instead of suitcase. but case is not allowed.
Oh ha regional version of case in america may mean you have a delusional problem as in you are catching a case of something crazy in your head.
I'm guessing you are from England. People in the states don't use "case" for suitcase. To us case means detective work.
I am going to put it in your case. This is how I would say this in English. ???????????
This is my first time hearing colocar being used.. I'm not familiar at all with the usage of that word : ( I need to learn a lot more spanish (/,)
I used "case" not suitcase and Duo rejected it. They are the same thing and "case" is used much more in normal speech in English - ?? Suitcase is still correct but is a very old fashioned word.
