Está (from estar): to describe a condition
Es (from ser): to describe inherent characteristics
Estoy aburrido: I am bored
Soy aburrido: I am boring
Spanish seems like one them languages u gotta think ahead and know what u about to say before u start speaking
Hence having a question mark at the start of the sentence as well as the end.you need to know it's a question before you start writing it!
A cool saying that helped me in high school was "How you feel, where you are, always use the verb estar. ". If the usage doesn't fall in the rhyme then use set.
Why is intelegente pronounced with an "h" sound & elegante pronounced with a 'g' sound? How do you know when the g changes from one sound to the other?
I put one extra L, you guys should make it so it is right but it tells you that you misspelled by a letter
In the words of user Lrtward: "está" describes a condition, while "es" describes inherent characteristics. "Estoy aburrido" = "I am bored" | "Soy aburrido" = "I am boring"
I typed "mi esposa es intellegente" and it counted it wrong becaude i put "intellegente" instead of "intelegente"
"Inteligente" doesn't change according to gender pronouns, it stays the same was. "Ella es inteligente", "él es inteligente". Most adjectives finishing with "ente" don't change also, such as impotente (powerless), sonriente (smiling), diferente (different), consistente (consistent), etc.
I clicked the button but the app just said the sentence by itself. I didn't do anything and i got it right.
It's strange how it accepts clever, smart and intelligent for me but not for other people
You just came here later, most probably.
It would be funny if they make an AI that would be very accommodating while your level in the language study is low, but would become strict as you level up.
could you give some feedback on how i mispronounced a phrase. i can't improve if i can't tell what i got wrong
Intelligente vs elegante. When do you pro ounce the g as guh and when is it an h sound?
In Spanish, I believe "g" makes the h sound when the next letter in the word is "e" or "i".
Otherwise, it makes the guh sound.
You have to pay attention to what vogal is accompanying the G. Mostly G wil sound H when accompanied by E or i, while G will sound "guh" when accompanied by A, O and U
Lo siento. I remeber by going i am low and sad because i did some wrong Lo siento
My question was to translate, not repeat, and it wouldn't accept "smart" for "intelligent." July 2018.
Hi, please use the button to report oversights like this. The course creators don't read every comment to every sentence discussion, but they do get the reports. Thanks!
Like it asks what gender i am when signing up? How come it still teaches me sentances i will never use because of my gender!!!!
It's unfortunate that language lessons are being employed as political activism sessions. Humans who produce the same kind of gamete can not be espoused. You might as well ask us to translate "she is breathing pink lemonade" to which the rational reply is "but she does not have the ability to breath pink lemonade". Wife and Husband are tearms that have clear biological implications. Having a female voice talking about her wife is biologically incorrect.
