creo que 'nervous in the classroom' should be accepted.

No because the Spanish people we say class because in spanish Class is Clase and Classroom is Aula

August 28, 2018


Mil gracias! pero es interesante que 'aula' (classroom) and 'jaula' (cage) suenan muy simular....

August 28, 2018


from English into Spanish it is clear than class means clase and classroom aula, but from Spanish into English, CLASE, can be both CLASS and CLASSROOM, because CLASE is the normal way to say AULA. Aula sounds too formal and teachers and students say generally "clase" referring to the room.

I thought "nervous in class" sounded more natural and it accepted it.

July 7, 2018


Probably was accepted because the shade of meaning is so subtle.

July 12, 2018


didnt accept it for me!

August 28, 2018


Should "The girls in the class are nervous" not be accepted? It sounds much more like common English usage.

July 7, 2018


I dont think so...It is a subtle difference, but I think "the girls in the class are nevous" doesnt make a connection to the class itself contributing to being nervous, where as, "the girls are nervous in the class (room)" implies that they are (only) nervous in the class (not elsewhere. I can relate, when I took calculus, I, normally a calm student, became a nervous wreck.....in THAT classroom..

en la clase en español puede significar también in the classroom, la clase también puede ser el aula, la habitación donde se da clase.

What a terrible question. Why are the girls nervous in glass?

September 12, 2019


If it is they we have to use nerviosa yes but her in the sentence they used nerviosas

June 23, 2019


I wrote "The girls are nervous in the class", and it was counted wrong

August 29, 2019


my translation is correct. The girls are nervous in the class

September 3, 2019


anyone have a problem when immediately clicking the mic. to mimick back it automatically before even speaking says incorrect?

November 14, 2018


'Las chicas' also means young women but Duo doesn't accept it. Reported 09/12/2018

How do you know when to use son vs estan?

January 4, 2019


This site has a good breakdown: https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/ser-vs-estar

Why would 'The chicks are nervous in class be marked wrong'? i thought 'la clase' could mean 'the class' or just 'class'.

Chicas: girls or young girls?

May 27, 2019


I've looked this up before and there are apparently some regional differences but the answer I found generally is that "chicas" are teen girls and young women.

May 27, 2019


So how do you know if the girls in the class are nervous in general or if it is the class that makes them nervous?

July 3, 2019


By reading the sentence.

September 5, 2019


can anyone explain the difference in use between "estan" and "son" - can you say "las chicas son nerviosas"??? in the last lesson we used " Felipe and Alberto son...."

July 3, 2019


"Son" is a conjugated form of "ser" and "estan" of "estar". We use "ser" when discussing (physical) description, occupation, characteristic, time, origin and relationship (or, DOCTOR) and "estar" when discussing position, location, action, condition and emotion (or, PLACE).

This page explains in more depth: https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/ser-vs-estar

For this specific example, no, "las chicas son nerviosas" would not be correct, because we're discussing the girls' emotions.

Thanks!!! That helps a lot!

July 4, 2019


No problem! Glad I could help!

July 4, 2019


no peudo la escucha

June 27, 2018


This sentence is kind of sexist - can't the boys be nervous in class too?

July 5, 2019


Ok soy nerviosa que no puedo ir al mercado hoy porque es es 5am buenas noches señores

July 4, 2018


Should accept "The girls in the class are nervous"

August 1, 2018


That doesn’t quite mean the same thing. The DL statement suggests that they are nervous in this class rather than in your translation that they in general nervous. Subtle maybe but still a little different
