Is the second "mi" necessary? In English we can leave it out, is it the same in Spanish? I was marked wrong.
i'm wondering the same.
Yes and no, even though you can leave it out it sounds kinda weird, but is correct whatsoever
Why was only maestras correct? Why not profesoras also?
Reported: Mother means madre and Mom/Mum means Mamá. Also in Spain we use profesor/a to say teacher.
Why can't one use estan? The duolingo explanation says to use ser for permanent conditions, estar for temporary.
professions use ser. The Duolingo 'guideline' is a great oversimplification!
I would say it is a helpful oversimplification. Sorta like "i before e" is a great oversimplification.
Maestras means teachers too... or is it maestros?
in an earlier lesson, i used "y" as the conjunction and it told me it should be "e", why is "y" correct here/
It's normally "y"; it's only "e" if the next word begins with an "i" sound, such as "hija" does.
why cant you just say my mother and aunt?!
Why not maestros?
Because they're both female.
I used Maestras and it marked it wrong.
