Is the word elegant used more in Latin America??...I was trying to think how often I use it and I'd say not much and only for specific things. I would never, for example, call a friend or family member elegant.
Agreed. This native speaker of English would never say, "A elegant.."
I learned that you use 'An' at the start of a word that begins with a vowel. An elephant, an igloo, an umbrella, vs. a apple, a ear, a octopus.
More exactly, you use “an” before a word that begins with a vowel sound. So, you also have “an hour”, because the ‘h’ is not pronounced. You also have “a use”, because the word starts with a ‘y’ sound.
Who talks to a store? This can be said about some stores on Rodeo Drive.
I have never heard anyone in the UK describe a store as elegant. Is there a better translation for this phrase? Or maybe I don't hang out with the right people or shop in the right places. ...
That’s right! “An elegant store” is way too expensive for most of us.
I can just about imagine saying elegant but saying store rather than shop bothers me! I don't think you'd say "store" in either the UK or Ireland so "shop" being incorrect is a pain...
On the computer, the report button was to the left of the discussion button. On the phone the flag is the button for reporting. It is also near the discussion button.
In answer to below: It is harder in retrospect, reference this page, but they prefer a screenshot of the page with the exercise and your answer, since it gives them the actual exercise that you had for this phrase, as well as your exact answer, and all the information of which app you are using with which operating system, model numbers, etc. but that may be more important for an actual bug, try scrolling down to the help button below and scroll down there to access the bug report, but it is usually best to report at each exact sentence when you can. So when you practice and get this phrase again, that is when I would think it is best to report it.
I accidently put "Am" instead of "An" come on you didnt have to mark it wrong
I did that too, lol. Sometimes it counts it as correct bc of typos, but not always.
Why doesn't it accept "An elegant shop." In uk this is much more common.
I repeated the phrase correctly and completely and was still given an incorrect.
What did you put? Which form of the exercise did you have for this sentence? What is “this” ? Don’t forget the apostrophe in the verb contraction for “ It’s not working!” and we only use one exclamation point.
