"La mujer bebe jugo."
Translation:The woman is drinking juice.
I only got this correct because it was a cube words choice. However, i would have said "la mujer está bebiendo jugo". I wonder if it would have been marked incorrect?
interesting issue, the sentence la mujer bebe jugo could be translated as a progrssive aspect or simple in english, depending on the context
incorrect! La mujer bebe jugo - The woman drinks juice. The woman is drinking juice - La mujer esta bebiendo jugo. Am I wrong?!
Your translations are literally correct, MarioA.X.T., but what is key to remember is that Spanish doesn't use these two tenses in the same way that English does. Spanish speakers use simple present tense to mean what English simple present tense and English present progressive tense mean.
However, Spanish uses the "ir + a + infinitive" construction to mean what English present progressive/continuous tense means, as well as using it colloquially to have the same meaning as English future tense.
I've seen this same form used elsewhere . I think either esta bebiendo jugo or just "bebe jugo" can be used in Spanish to indicate on ongoing action.
Hopefully someone with a better understanding of Spanish will come along soon. You and I are at about the same level, so I'd like to have it explained, as well.
La mujer es beber jugo. O La mujer bebe jugo.
Does each sentence really translate into the same sentence?
No. That would be like the woman is to drink juice. You can say bebe (drinks) or está bebiendo (is drinking). But notice than in Spanish the simple present (bebe) is used even when in English you'd use the continuous is drinking.
The woman drinks juice!!!!! Not drinking; who made this app....so many mistakes
No, it's not a mistake. In Spanish this sentence can be translated either as a present action or as an ongoing progressive action. It's used here as an alternative to using esta bebiendo. You'll see a lot of this as you continue in the lessons.
I cannot stress enough how true this is. In every language, there is more than one way to say anything.
