"El pato bebe agua."
Translation:The duck drinks water.
I accidentally wrote the f word instead of duck XD Imust be more used to that word.
Because Pato can mean male or female ducks, or just ducks in general. It's like the they of the duck world. Pata is always female, however.
I thought it said vato, and i couldn't think of anything in Spanish it sounded like. So i put vato, it said i had a typo for pato!
Is anybody else having problems continuing, my screen will freeze for five minutes after the lesson is over
It says I'm getting some of these answers wrong when I'm not. It's exactly like the right answer.
How do you decide if the duck "el pato" needs to be masculine or femimine?
Words such as manzana (apple) and rosa (pink) are feminine, and would be paired with "la". La manzana would be correct, and el manzana would be incorrect. This is because of the similarity between the ending of the word and "la." Notice they both end with the letter a with an "ah" sound. Pato (duck) and Oso (bear) both end with an o, which is masculine.Using the word "La" on these words would be incorrect.
These two endings are some of the most common.
As for other words, I just studied them and which form of the word, "The" they belonged to. I'm sure there's a much more technical way to figure out exactly why certain words are masculine or feminine (such as "corredor" which means runner in English, and is masculine, and doesn't end with an a or an o) but I just guessed until I figured it out.
The same goes for plurals. If you wanted to say "The ducks," you would say "Los patos." If you wanted to say "The apples," You would say, "Las Manzanas."
I hope I helped! Sorry for the confusing response. I wish you good luck :).
if you need real help just slow down if you know it or if your a beginner like me slow down and move your mouse on the word and it shows english words
Birds is a general term for all types of bird, pato means one specific kind of bird, ducks.
way is it drinks and not drink?! I have always wrong when it´s questions like this!!
Aqua is latin for water, they're trying to get you to put in an English translation.
I wrote the translation (the duck drinks water) instead of what I heard. I stupid XD
