"Do you shower in the morning or at night?"
Translation:¿Te duchas en la mañana o en la noche?
Why is "¿Te duchas en la mañana o la noche?" incorrect? Why does there have to be "en" in front of both?
"en" translates to both "in" and "at" on this example so if you omit the second one, you are removing the "at" before "night": "Do you shower in the morning or the night?" Please notice that I am not saying if "¿Te duchas en la mañana o la noche?" is correct or not, I am just attempting to explain why DL could have marked your proposal as incorrect.
Im having a hard time understanding when you would use "te" vrs "tu". Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you
Tú means "you" as a noun. Te means something closer to "yourself." "Tú te duche" is "you shower yourself."
More specifically, 'te' in front of a verb means that the action is being done to you. So, "te hablo" means "I talk to you," while "te hablas" means "You talk to yourself." Hope hope this helps!
Ducha would be in reference if speaking to he or she (Ella ducha o El ducho/a). You uses the 'as' verb (Te ducha)
What is written above as the correct translation is exactly what I wrote and it was marked wrong -- they insisted on bañas.
