"Sobald er sitzt, können wir essen."

Translation:As soon as he is seated, we can eat.

May 9, 2018



As soon as he sits then we can eat. This is wring. Why do inhave to have "sits down".?


"As soon as he sits, we can eat" is accepted.

The "then" is wrong there.

It "correct" your "sits then" to "sits down", which is another possibility.


What's wrong with "As soon as he sits, we can eat"? Can anyone help me on this?


What's wrong with "As soon as he sits, we can eat"?

Nothing. That's an accepted translation.

Do you have a screenshot showing that answer being rejected?


Translation : we can eat as soon as he is seated was not correct. Any ideas as to why?
