"They are studying the cities of Europe."
Translation:Ellos estudian las ciudades de Europa.
The present progressive form (They are studying) uses the verb estar. https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/spanish-present-progressive-forms
I still didnt see the estudian form but I will look deeper latr on. I get confused why the SON is not needed..or allowed in this sentence. Hopefully I will find the answer.
Doesn't accept any of the below.
- Están estudiando las ciudades de Europa.
- Estudian las ciudades de Europa.
- Ellas estudian las ciudades de Europa.
I see you used estudian but i actually wanted to use ser. Ellos son estudiando.... I feel like this is correct no?
Seriously, we are learning, so why do they not even provide the correct answer to help jog the memory. Both estudiando and estudiar were shown, yet both were wrong. Estudian was the correct answer. Duolingo are great in assuming you already know the answer by not exactly helping guide you along. Misleading as always
when multiple things, example: el hombre y la mujer = the man and the woman. Los hombres y las mujeres = men and woman
