"You drink milk and I drink water."
Translation:Você bebe leite e eu bebo água.
You can do that. But, like spanish, when you want to show actions in distinct people, its better to use it. So, using eu in such sentence would be better.
It makes sense that it's better, but I don't think a right answer without the eu should be marked wrong.
Yes, but since there are two sujects involved, it can be very confusing without them.
Isn't the conjugation for drink when it is "you" supposed to be "bebes" not "bebe" ?
Inspite of tu and você is being referred to a second person (the person who you are talking to), você is conjugated on the 3rd singular person, like ele, ela.
I put "tu bebes" and it was accepted, but if you use "você" (normal form in Brazil, and polite singular form in Portugal If I get it), you use você with the same conjugation than "ele" and "ela", but it's the same meaning than "you".
why "bebes" is not correct??? it says "you drink" so it is "voce bebes" . Beber at the second person is bebes, isnt' it?
Inspite of tu and você is being referred to a second person (the person who you are talking to), você is conjugated on the 3rd singular person, like ele, ela. So, we say "tu bebes" but "você bebe" (both meaning "you drink")
Is it okay to emit eu if the beber is conjugated correctly in the first person form? I put "você bebe leite e bebo água." which was counted incorrect.
It is not wrong if you decide to omit "eu". But everytime we have comoparisons involving pronouns (in this case "você" vs "eu") it's better to include them to emphasize the comparison
Bebes leite e bebo água. Boohoo its wrong :( dont get it I understand what u say about contrasting but surely I can choose if I use tu or voce, and excluding both should not be incorrect
We could also say "bebes leite e eu água" as it is the same verb and we can omit it... tho, it said I was wrong...
Then, comma is mandatory, or else, it will be grammatically wrong:
- Bebes leite, e eu, água.
- Bebes leite; (e) eu, água.
The correct translation for '(I) drink' is 'bebo' right? Because it tells me that it is 'tomo' which is confusing to me
