"Por favor no sean así."
Translation:Please do not be like that.
man.....in a sentence like this the translation should allow both this/that. they are interchangeable in the english usage
I don't know that they're interchangeable but both should certainly be accepted here.
um i doubt they are. be like 'this' hints toward a situation that persists be like 'that' is more for a state that exists in parallel or in a distance.
you are being sad. please don't be like this you act just like that cranky lady next door. mom please don't be like that (woman)
I just answered with 'please don't be like this' and it was accepted, so I guess they've changed this.
It's been too long for you to answer directly, so this is a general request:
It could be there was some other error in your sentence, but we can't tell unless you copy and paste your complete answer here. Sometimes it is something really small - like using a contraction "don't" instead of "do not"
Does that mean the person saying this sentence is talking to multiple people? If you were talking to one person would it be "Por favor no sea asi"?
«Like this» is not the same as « this way»? Come on! In Spanish dictionaries asi = this way or that way. Son iguales
SPANISH SHAKESPEARE?? correct translation provided was "PLEASE DON'T BE THUS"!!!!!
I agree , it could be subjunctive saying to someone ( oh but ) you are not like this( are you?) , couldn't it . with the words in the parentheses being implied.
I thought asi could mean regular also for instance don't act above yourselves.
Duolingo, please don't be thus! I actually don't know what I'm telling you, do you?
Correct solution is: "please don't be thus". Is that actual real English? What does it mean?
Duolingo...i write the correct answer and you don't accept it..it is exactly the same as the duolingo answer...how do i bypass this problem
Please don't be thus? Is thus a word? Better to say please don't be like that..
Your answer is "please, do not be thus"? What the heck answer is that? This is not something that would ever be said in English.
