Uhh so whos previously learnt orange juice as "zumo de naranja"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Biernar

jugo is latin american spanish, zumo is spanish spanish, so yeah.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mjxiaohou

No jugo is juice in spanish


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ThomasMart460924

Yet nobody ever says that in Spain.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YoParaskyp

Yes, it is. But in Spain juice is zumo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DerAndereLerner

It is meat juice if I recollect correctly...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FayLawrenc2

Zumo is what we say all over Spain, jugo is something I never heard spoken before?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EveliaMeij1

How close is the duolingo spainish to the spanish in spain?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jim252105

not to close ...barcalona is very exact spanish..


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofia182217

I keep on forgetting get! T^T


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ves_McVoid

Just remember we are using the "de" because here "naranja" is being used as a noun, not an adjective. We want the juice because it is made of oranges, not because it is orange.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MitchellSeabolt

Ahh! Im getting it now. Eventually this is gonna rub off.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Purpleteapot

Thanks for that explanation, that helps a lot!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maria415107

Orange is an adjective, naranja is the noun


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Blue364658

Orange can be an adjective or a noun, but in this case it is being used as a noun. That is why it comes second and after the 'de'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trina299758

Omg. Love you. Couldn't have said it better. Thank you!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/carolsturg2

Teice for me ...so happy that i got thru the sentence.....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/skXBWj

So easy for me to learn Spanish. And I am 10 years old.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ad_Insaniam

That's amazing! I wish I had started at your age!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobbieMill20

why the "de" ...a juice of orange ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/greenraccoon30

Yeah, because it's the juice of an orange, not an orange-colored juice.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SquidKid4eva

Why "un" and not "una"?! I keep getting mixed up on these.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaddieJ29

un is masc. because jugo ends in an "o" :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Greg661761

Spain uses "zumo" when referring to fruit juice.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CJ3333

That is not true, my Spanish teacher at school told me otherwise


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Greg661761

My father is from Spain and we have visited our family there many times. Your Spanish teacher is incorrect or possibly referring to a part of Spain other than Madrid. "Zumo de naranja" is how it is referred to.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MinYoong6

Someone said that jugo is latin American Spanish


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NadiaFourmi

un jugo de china?? I thought orange was naranja?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/purlines

Just in case you're wondering why, it's because oranges are a cross bred fruit that was first developed in China. So it's kind of like Canadian Bacon or French Fries. Though I guess the fries were introduced to US by French speaking Belgians :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NadiaFourmi

Thanks for the explanation, I didn't know that. What I do know as a Belgian is that fries are indeed Belgian :-P But apparently the way they are cut is called "french"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Every1IsTaken

it is, although in puerto rico orange is called china, both is right but if you're in the u.s you're better off saying de naranja


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NadiaFourmi

Thanks for explaining!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ramen.1

they have the same sentence but one has " un" and the other has "una"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cddrn94127

Why won’t duolungo allow me to go back & correct mistakes


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Breckyn763928

I agree with you they should make it to were we can fix our mistakes


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Betty543178

the por favor is being left off of the sentence and I'm being marked incorrectly


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilyBelle11

Jugo de china for orange juice


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cherylh842002

I wrote "un jugo de naranja, por favor" for an orange juice please. It is marking it wrong and wants un jugo de china por favor. ....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/21JosiaRSt

i mis typed the word and it said i got it wrong???


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/21JosiaRSt

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PocoLoco01

So long for something so simple. Ugh.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jordan962457

Thats what she said


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maria415107

The Hispanics speaks quite fast though.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/djdNikki

I wrte it correctly and it thinks it is incorrect


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/janice720218

This is the right answer. I cant move forward


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KendrickGu5

How do you know whether or not, it is una or un at the beginning of sentence


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChloeEphor

If your talking of a female you use una, for a male ypu you use un, si you would have to say un


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VeraVeertje

Jugo should be zumo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Leanne527299

The answer says i should of wrote a china juice please


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlbertEins915142

I keep forgetting "de"! DANG IT


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nia727215

I can not get this wright


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/angie947034

I wrote this correctly and was informed it was wrong!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GerardSmar2

That is what i wrote


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GerardSmar2

I do not write the Rr


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bronwen830877

I always forget this one because I always think that Jugo is jug instead of juice.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/caroleannn

Pressed button accidentally


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/David322632

I used una instead of un, and they said it was wrong


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jeffu6r2wHbd

So why cant it be Un vaso jugo de naranja por favor


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MohammedSOG

I'm trying to learn Spanish so that when I go to Spain I can speak with the locals. How close is this version of Spanish to that which is spoken in Spain?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/marekmuu

Wrote zumo and got wrong;(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chris474790

I rly missed this one 3 times because i forgot to say thanks


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FizzyBossYT

For everyone saying zumo is correct spanish, it is only used in spain. A majority of spanish teachers do not use that because they do not teach "spain" spanish. Jugo is used for juice pretty much everywhere else.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianaMath3

What's the difference between una and un?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RebekahFerro

Can someone please explain why it is 'de' naranja, opposed to 'con' naranja?? Thank you :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonaCairns

I got ir right and it says no


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonaCairns

Come on, i got it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HHalversta

This one I had no idea how I got it wrong.


[deactivated user]

    It corrected me to write, "Porfa." Please explain. Thanks


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tomaso-H

    Just for anyone seeing this comment and wondering the same thing, "porfa" is a colloquialism for "por favor" according to SpanishDict.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KaNiya399963

    I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS AND I HATE IT T-T


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maureen580701

    An orange juice please. Un jugo de naranja, por favor. How is this wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maureen580701

    I ca t get past this post. Ive checked multiple times and iam. Correct . This is so frustrating HELP


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maureen580701

    Ive wasted 1/2 an hour trying to get past this problem ?? Why, i don't understand how you can ignore this, i have posted comments and nothing.?? Duolingo is a great app until this happens again then it confuses me.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeighlinCo

    Xd i put what it said and it said i was wrong... Idk wut to do?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jerry924636

    Bu isn't that pronounced" An orange of juice please"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John895096

    I love how a lot of people from spain are critiquing this when they're not the only spanish speakers in the world, that's like comparing an American's english to a Canadian's english, or a person from the UK's english. Just stop


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AbdallaBou1

    I am writing it the same and you are considering it wrong


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AbdallaBou1

    3 health went because of writing it correct and you are considering it wrong for the forth time


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kevin440174

    I typed exactly the correct answer and it marked as incorrect. It has happened a number of times previous to this as well.

    How to use UN and UNA


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Minnie_Belle_123

    I swear jugo is past tense of "to play"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Beans254881

    How come "Jugo de naranja, por favor." is not correct? Is the word "un" really necessary? Wouldn't it just translate to "Orange juice, please."? Can someone help?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Manushi831187

    Isn't ur answer wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexanderB745388

    why do i get it wrong when it doesn't give me an opition of upper case?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Ren-

    Huh, I remember learning "orange juice" as "jugo" in Spanish class...do any Spanish speakers in the US use this or were we way off?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GbayesolaT

    So what is the right spanish translation for this juice Jugo or zumo


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NevaehFuqu

    They did not let me pass because i spelled it like this narajia.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christelle663852

    I keep forgetting de!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SynedaWalk

    i like Duolingo its easy.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FayLawrenc2

    In Spain we say zumo not jugo.....


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LieutenantButter

    If I said "Jugo Naranja" would it mean that the juice is literally orange?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AshtynKinnett

    I keep forgetting it....!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/L.John4

    Una and un? I am not getting it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Turtle_911

    Why is "Un naranja jugo,por favor" wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/toggitang4

    In Spanish "una" and "un" are very different. If you get them switched it could confuse them. I think it's also the culture that makes it important.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/monikahill6

    Why cant i use "una" instead of un


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CamronHish

    Please fix your game PLEASE :P


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ninja_plezzz0908

    I don't understand, this doesn't make sense. And each time I see this the answer changes.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CJ3333

    Un jugo de china, por favor. Was the anwser for mine and translauted that means: A jucie of china, please


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bridgette134163

    Un naranja jugo por favor A orange juice please. But its wrong apparently its Un jugo de naranja por favor


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LordRaisin

    Can you say, "Un jugo naranja, por favor?" to translate directly in English to be orange juice?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JadePeriit

    What is jugo? Is that for juice? And does it come before orange because orange is an adjective?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ian68006

    Why is it 'Un jugo', rather than 'Una jugo'?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZackaryLaP1

    una is feminine and un is masculine. Jugo is a masculine noun.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmiyaJames

    I know there is lingo to shorten this. Pmo


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CarolDossa20

    I am confused as to when to use una and un and el and la


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/toggitang4

    "El" is for male. "La" is for female. Example: la mujer, el hombre.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DaRealNoah

    Should I use zumo or jugo?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KaterinaPapad

    Both are correct but I think zumo is mostly used in Spain


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/traydog12

    this is not right


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HannahZell15

    I sometimes forget that.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lania685922

    Isn't zumo juice? I was taught zumo de naranja was orange juice?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZackaryLaP1

    yes i think its used more in spain


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lania685922

    Just accepted zumo de naranja


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sue564402

    I spelled "de" wrong, I thought they had spelling correcting?? Its been fine before this one wtf


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MoinMulla1

    I dnt understand


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/acousticmoose

    Why is it "jugo" instead of "zumo"? My head hurts.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZackaryLaP1

    jugo is the spanish from southern america. I believe zumo is used mainly in spain.
