I am studying the cities of Mexico = Estoy estudiando las ciudades de México.
I study the cities of Mexico = Yo estudio las ciudades de México.
Again, I am right but the computer says "No"
The tenses do not match up as neatly as that. Estudio can be translated I study or I am studying. Estoy estudiando means I am studying (right now).
In that case is "I study the cities of Mexico" an incorrect translation here?
Remember that the present tense (indicative) in Spanish means three things.
Tú hablas inglés. You speak English. You do speak English. You are speaking English. Tú comes pan. You eat bread. You do eat bread. You are eating bread. Tú vives en Buenos Aires. You live in Buenos Aires. You do live in Buenos Aires. You are living in Buenos Aires.
"X de Y" is literally "Y's X" in English, so I have no idea what you're talking about (and I suspect you don't either).
Touche. However, if you haven't noticed, Duolingo debates what phrase is the most used in normal conversations. What's funny is that the only time that this phrase would be pulled up in a conversation is when it is asked about, which you wouldn't say "I study Mexico's cities." That would be improper slang, given how most people react to questions. Thanks for helping me make my explanation at least a little bit clearer! (though it wasn't really an explanation.) EDIT: Needless to say, the statement is also in present tense, so you wouldn't say "I study Mexico's cities." Instead, try "I am studying Mexico's cities." ¡Adios!
The yo word sounds like jo and it's in male voice. Do you really know this word?
La conjugación del verbo "Estudiar" en presente es "Study", Yo estudio las ciudades de México, I Study the cities of Mexico; en la conjugación del verbo Estudiar en gerundio es "estudiando, studying" Yo estoy estudio las ciudades de México, I am studying the cities of Mexico, por lo tanto creo que hay un error en la respuesta.
The conjugation of the verb "Estudiar" in the present is "Study", Yo estudio las ciudades de México, I study the cities of Mexico; in the conjugation of the verb Study in gerund is "Estudiando, studying", Yo estoy estudio las ciudades de México, I am studying the cities of Mexico, therefore, i think there is an error in the answer.
