"She doesn't drink wine" and "She is not drinking wine" has two different meanings.How do you translate each one in Spanish?
wine which vino in spanish translates to mvinyo in swahili kinda intersting i think
I understand that Swahili originated as a language of the east African coast and that its vocabulary includes many words derived from the languages of peoples who traded along that coast. Among those were the Portuguese, who controlled coastal towns in that area in the 16th and 17th centuries, and I believe that the Swahili word comes from the Portuguese vinho.
"She" is third person singular, which in English requires "does" and "doesn't" (or "does not", but apparently that option is not currently accepted.)
I "wrote she dose not drink wine" and it says it's wrong, the right answer is "doesn't" but shouldn't it make no difference?
Dose isn't how you spell that word. It's spelt does. That might be the reason. If you wrote does not and DL didn't accept it, you should report it
Sometimes the audio does not completely play and I also think that sometimes Duolingo does not hear one's complete dictation of a Spanish phrase and gives an incorrect result. I usually get each word pronounced correctly until the random times when Duolingo dosn't think any word was right. Has anyone else experienced this? It would be good if Duolingo allowed more than one attempt to say a phrase and even showed your audio waveform vs the ideal waveform.
The n't kinda makes the answer obvious... Although I kinda wish the answer included shen't, drinkn't, or winen't
DuoLingo isn't very good at understanding AAVE (African American Vernacular English). In AAVE, "She do not drink wine" is 100% correct.
But in """traditional""" """correct""" (i.e. Caucasian) English, you'd say "She DOES not drink wine." That's the answer Duo is expecting.
It's not correct English. Try "She does not drink wine" or "She doesn't drink wine".
Just that it's not the translation of "Ella no bebe vino." In most contexts it would mean the same thing, but it just isn't a direct translation.
