  5. "Όταν θα πάω στο φεστιβάλ, θα…

"Όταν θα πάω στο φεστιβάλ, θα δω την παράσταση."

Translation:When I go to the festival, I will watch the show.

April 19, 2018



Why is When I will go to the festival... not accepted? Is it not correct or not common to use the future tense in a construction like this?


There are certain time expressions in English after which we do not use the Future tense. E.g. "If, when, until .... see here.


When I go ... is present I think !


Will see the show was marked wrong


"...will see the show." is already one of the accepted translations. There might have been another error.


I will see the performance was marked wrong.


"...I will see the performance." is correct but it's only a part of the sentence. Please send a screenshot with the whole exercise, your full translation and the response from Duolingo.


The v of την makes the following π of παράσταση sound like a b.


Hi Nathan, is this meant as a question or as a comment? In most (?) areas of Greece a word ending in ν changes a following κ to a g sound, and a ξ to a gs (δεν ξέρω - the[n]GSEro) - in both cases the ν is often nasalized -, a π to a b sound (and often the ν changes to an m: την παράσταση - timbaRAstasi), a τ to a d sound, and a ψ to a bs sound (again the v often changes to m: τον ψαρά - tombsaRA).


Hi, and welcome, and thanks for your as always precise and helpful explanation.
