"I need a belt."
Translation:Yo necesito un cinturón.
I was only one letter off and it said I failed. Usually it's ok with a one letter mistake.
I typed in un cinturón and it failed bc they wanted faja and when i typed that in they wanted cinturón. What's the difference?
I agree, cinturón is the translation duo has stated so far & now they state faja! It's very confusing when you are learning!
It depends on if it's describing nouns that end "feminine" or "masculine." So, nouns that end in "a" get una (una falda, una camiseta, una naranja, una casa). And nouns that end "o" and most "e" get un (un sombrero, un regalo, un reloj, un pasaporte)...
Un is masculine Una is fem. You basically replace la and él. Example: La falda > Una falda; él gato > Un gato. Hope that helps :)
