"Las tardes en la playa son divertidas."
Translation:Afternoons on the beach are fun.
The correct English sentence should be "... at the beach" instead of "...on the beach".
No! First of all, divertida means fun and/or funny. You got the sentence wrong.
Tardes means afternoons or evenings. It is rejecting evenings in this instance. But at other places evenings seem to be acceptable
So here we wouldn't put "los playas"? I am asking as it is assuming that there would only be multiple afternoons as the same beach? as opposed to speaking on afternoons at different beaches?
First, we would never put los playas, we las playas (playa is feminine). Then, you have to remember that plural possession in Spanish is distributive, as opposed to the collective possession in English. Basically, if you say The men have a shirt, it generally mean that they share the shirt, whereas in Spanish, you say Los hombres tienen una camisa. On the other hand, if you say Los hombres tienen camisas, it means that each man has several shirts.
In this sentence, it's more or less the same. If you say Las tardes en las playas, it means you go to different beaches in one afternoon, and you do so multiple times. Las tardes en la playa only means that you go to one beach per afternoon, not that you go to the same every time.
Well done Amine. Very interesting and entertaining. Full marks. Go to the top of the Class
The Spanish use the definate article in places that we don't use it. Try this link https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/using-the-definite-article-in-spanish This case comes under No1. Talking about general things! Hope that helps.
Why is AT the beach wrong? What kind of broken robot is doing these translations
This wont accept "at the beach" as a correct translation, where: "Los fines de semana en la playa son muy divertidos." DOES accept "at the beach" as a correct translation. There are other sentances where it accepts "at the beach" in this phrasing of "en la playa" as well. Inconsistent? You decide.
It rejected "afternoons at the beach are amusing". Reported 16 June 2018.
"Afternoons are fun on the beach." was rejected. I think it should have been fine.
I wrote "The afternoons at the beach are they fun". Obviously wrong however how would you say that in Spanish?
