Why was I wrong to answer "buenas tardes, como estas?

June 24, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jr0007

"Cómo estás"? It's correct!

"And I Speak Spanish"

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sun_Sword

I know right, the only difference between 'Buenos tardes, ¿Como estas?' and 'Buenas tardes, ¿cómo está usted?' is that the later would be used to talk to someone above you and the first one is for equals, but we don't know who we are talking to in this situation

No, there is nothing wrong with your answer, except that the accents are missing. However, Duo does not mark answers incorrect because of missing/misplaced accents, thankfully. Instead, Duo needs to be updated to accept your answer.

Cómo estas if he-she is your friend , cómo esta usted if he-she is a stranger

August 6, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarah905910

But we don't know if its a stranger or not

May 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AddyLilans

I think if it doesn't say so than Duolingo wants us to expect it to be stranger since we don't say their name.

Do you say good afternoon to your buddy or do you say good afternoon to someone you are more respectful towards?

August 21, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thiru123

I believe '¿cómo está usted?' is used when you want to be more formal and polite, but '¿como estas?' should be correct to translate 'how are you?' in this sentence, as it doesn't specify if you should be more formal or not.

May 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Josue873014

it is correct, however duo should accept como estás, because that answer is valid

July 8, 2019

Me too I thought it would have been estas?

April 21, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AScam0

same here, I thought of 2nd person singular - do you have to include the tú for that?

July 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GrosserBart

Unless they changed it since your post, there is no answer "buenas tardes, como estas?"

My answer choices were (ignore lack of accents due to US keyboard):

Buenas noches, hasta luego usted?

Buenas tardes, como USTED? this was what I chose and can now see how it's wrong - missing "esta" (I put usted in caps for emphasis)

Buenas tardes, como esta usted? (correct answer per DL)

After some research it seems that since there is no exact spanish word for evening, evening can be either tarde or noche. So with that said, "Buenas tardes, como esta usted?" is the correct answer.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sharon919702

Have you learned that on Duo yet? Don't jump all over me, but my husband speaks Spanish. He gave me help on estas, es, and he said:estas is temporary and es is permanent. Tu perro es bonito.

December 14, 2018

I think it is the difference between 'you' (estas) and 'he/she/it' (esta).

April 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Amber871207

It has to do with spanish tenses/persons

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KennChip

One is formal and one is informal. Esta is used with strangers/people of dignity (formal) and estas is used with friends and family you know well (informal).

August 5, 2019

I think it's about being formal. When you wish someone good evening you should formally ask about their well-being.

August 20, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/skepticalways

BeccaEdnie, I made the same mistake, and I think we forgot to put the accent on the final "a" in estás. In conversation, though, I don't think the addition of was necessary. Next time I'll just keep it more formal & say, ¿Cómo está usted?

July 8, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nick_Pr

August 17, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LisaSchaef11

I think because the answer didn't give the option for estas only for esta, so the conjugation was incorrect.

I though tardes was afternoon

June 5, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Agenou

It is! Spanish speakers don't distinguish between afternoon and evening the way English (and German, French, and Italian) speakers do.

On the other hand, they have a specific word for that time of day between midnight and dawn (la madrugada) that English doesn't have. We might say "the wee hours," but there isn't a specific term for that.

I think it's fascinating how one culture creates words for concepts that may go unnamed in another culture.

June 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/McGuireV10

Until the mid-1500s, "morning" was the English word for the time between midnight and sunrise. My etymology dictionary doesn't clarify why it changed to be more or less synonymous with "dawn" (which used to imply "first light of day").

July 27, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RWS459139

This is interesting, and I'm not sure we should be talking about this here.... but I, as a native English speaker, have always heard any time between midnight and noon referred to as "morning" as in "2:00 in the morning". How do you refer to this time?

August 2, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JuanCarlos926671

Between midnight and dawn we say in Spanish "madrugada", like early morning:
"Las 2 de la madrugada"

"Buenos noches, como estas?"

Why is this wrong?

November 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

La noche is a feminine noun (an exception to the rule of nouns ending in -e being masculine) and thus needs to be paired with the feminine adjective buenas as a denominator.

Also, without the proper accent marks in cómo estás you'd be saying "I eat these" (e.g. estas uvas - these grapes).

April 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmeraldEas

Hello! I wondered the same thing too when I was learning the correct stuff a little while ago.... my teacher said that it depends on the masculin and feminine endings. So maybe your answer should have been: 'Buenas noches, cómo estás?'.

January 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertGlom

I'm stuck at the very beginning. BUENAS AND BUENOS. I'm sure there's a rule here I'm missing. Would someone please clarify?

December 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DesOBrien4

Depends on the gender of the noun. Dias is masculine (even though it has an 'as' ending and noches is feminine. So buenos dias and buenas noches

January 19, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mak692400

When would you use "Como Esta" and "Que tal..)

February 3, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

Qué tal is more like "how's it going" and often used among friends/ well acquainted people.

Cómo está usted is a formal way of asking someone "how are you" and cómo estás the informal way.

April 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JuanCarlos926671

Como está? --- > Formal
Que tal? ---> Informal
Entonces?/Qué onda?/Qué cuenta? ---> Very informal

When did tardes become night instead of buenos noches?

April 3, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Angemail

**Buenas tardes, ¿cómo está usted? [formal]. Buenas tardes ¿Cómo estás? [informal, sin el tú].

HOWEVER, When arriving: **¡Buenas noches! (…) The answer is then, Buenas noches, bienvenido.

When leaving: Buenas noches (…) The answer: buenas noches, (que le vaya bien).

Buenas tardes (from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m.) Buenas noches (from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight)

How "good evening" is the same as "buenas tardes"? Is that right?

April 19, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

Yeah, "tardes" is used for afternoon/ early evening and "noches" for late evening/ night (e.g. after late dinner/ supper onwards).

Can '¿qué tal?' be used to translate 'how are you?'?

May 19, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jennifer25102

Noches and tardes should both be correct, should they not? What about this sentence tells us it is a formal address and usted should be used??

May 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thiru123

'Noches' translates to 'night'.

'Tardes' translates to 'evening'.

This sentence is asking you to translate 'good evening...', so you should have written 'buenas tardes...'.

Furthermore, I agree that the sentence should have specified that we have to use 'usted' in our translation, so if you got your sentence wrong because you used '¿como estas?' instead , then you should report it.

May 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/unlucio

So "usted" is used in a more formal way, but "Good evening, how are you?" isnt all that formal if you ask me... This is pretty confusing.

June 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thiru123

I agree, Duo should have made it clear that it wanted us to use the formal version for this translation.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bgwmson

Why is usted necessary? It wasn't in other structures.

June 26, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

If you are using "está" as the formal 2nd person singular, you pair it with "usted" (otherwise you could be asking about any third party).

If you're speaking informally, then use "estás" - this doesn't need to be followed by but it can be used for emphasis (e.g. you've been telling about yourself for a while and then turn the question back to the other person: "but how are you?").

April 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sharon919702

Right ,but it has it's place. I think it is informal you.

July 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JohnGall3

I used the "tú" 2nd person singular and it was marked incorrect. Is it because "buenas tardes" is a more formal greeting so you use the "usted" form as a sign of formality or respect?

July 13, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sharon919702

I don't think so. Nothing to replace 'buenas tardes'. I don't think it's formal or informal. It's a time of day!!!

January 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GedFarnan

My understanding is that when using the formal 'usted' you go into third person mode and therefore the final 's' is dropped from "estás" (which is only used as first person informally.) Native-English speakers need to get their heads around the differences in formal and informal speech!

July 13, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HeatherDeW7

But there is nothing inherently formal about "Good evening, how are you?" In this case, it could be informal or formal, singuar or plural. There should be multiple acceptable answers.

July 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GedFarnan

@ HeatherDeW7 I disagree with your contention that thee is "nothing inherently formal" about saying "Good Evening, how are you?" How often would you say that to your friends, close relatives,partner(s) etc? I can't imagine saying that in any informal setting.

August 5, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nick_Pr

You are speaking of the English though. Just because "good evening" sounds formal in (some dialects) of English does NOT mean "buenas tardes" is formal in Spanish. (For example, I agree that, in English, "good evening" sounds formal, but "good morning" and "good night" do not.

September 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

La noche is an exception to the noun gender rules (nouns ending in -e often being masculine) and it is feminine - thus 'buenas noches'.

April 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

And just to clarify, the noun never changes its gender according to the adjective, but the other way around. Noche stays as noche.

April 27, 2019

I thought 'tardes' was afternoon, so buenas tardes should be good afternoon? Good evening should be buenas noches the same as good night?

December 21, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmeraldEas

Buenas tardes can mean 'good evening' and 'good afternoon'.

January 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Angemail

I thought 'tardes' was afternoon, so buenas tardes should be good afternoon?

The answer is YES (and you know that).

Good evening should be buenas noches the same as good night?

The answer is NO.

Why? Because good evening is used when you arrive. For example, you are invited to your in-laws’ place, you arrive and say: Good evening.

After a nice dinner, you are leaving, then you say: (…) good night…

AND HERE IS THE CONFUSION:
In Spanish you say Buenas noches for both cases.

When arriving: ¡Buenas noches! (…) The answer is then, Buenas noches, bienvenido.

When leaving: Buenas noches (…) The answer: buenas noches, que le vaya bien.

What's wrong with Buenas tardes, que tal?

January 15, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmeraldEas

Buenas tardes is correct but... 'qué tal?' means 'How's it going?' not 'How are you?'.

January 25, 2019

Formal speech is always acceptable if one is unsure of which to use.

"Buenos tardes como esta usted" which was my exact answer, was rejected. Can anyone tell me why?

January 29, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

Tardes (la tarde) is feminine in gender and thus the adjective must be feminine as well: buenas.

Also note that cómo está must be properly accented, or the meaning changes into something else.

April 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmeraldEas

Maybe because 'tardes' is masculine making 'buenos' to the correct form 'buenas'. It may not be formal either so at the ending you could try to put: 'Cómo estás?'.

January 30, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Barbara250928

What about "Que tal?" (Too presumptious? Don't know how to add accents in this textbox format.) Also, following the thread below, here's a suggestion: be aware that this system is algorhythm-based, meaning it's an aggregate of the average answers, so far. Several times, I've been judged 'wrong' on an answer, and my answer meant exactly the same thing, I reported it, and sometimes weeks later, I get a notice via email that my answer is now accepted as correct. It's constantly self-correcting, learning itself as we give input, and though maddeningly repetitious, I am definitely learning through all the hoops they make you jump. And as well, another language clearly has different conventions and traditions, which must be taken into account. Be patient with the Owl. He/she is learning too.

February 5, 2019

Qué tal is more suitable in a situation where you're asking (e.g.) your friend "What's up?" / "How's it going?".

April 27, 2019

Because it depends on the noun. If it is feminine it is buenas, but if its masculine it is buenos. Bueno, Buena, Buenos and Buenas are four distinct words with the same meaning that are suited to match their noun.

Whats the difference with buenos and buenas?

August 1, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alwayslol

Masculine versus feminine.

buenas = fem. plural | buenos = masc. plural

So, it's buenos dias! (Because dia is masculine) But buenas tardes! and buenas noches! (Because they are both feminine).

*Note: dia should have an accent on the i. I can't find a good way to produce the accent on my English keyboard. Somebody tell me how if you have figured it out.

Now, don't ask why it's plural. I looked into it, and it's complicated. I am only a beginner in Spanish also, but I have studied a number of languages, and there are times where you just have to say, it is what it is. Trying to figure out why you use plural here looks like one of those times. :)

I agree it is off putting when we don't know if it's a friend or a stranger. I can only guess if it doesn't have, say, Juan or someone's name in it, then we are to treat it as speaking to a stranger. This does give me a headache and I'm having a REAL difficult time getting past this "Greetings" section. I think I know and then BOOM - the next day I don't.

August 2, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alwayslol

Yes. There is a pattern. If it has the person's first name, use the informal "tu" (accent on u) form. If they have Mr., Mrs., Miss, Sir, Ma'm, or some other way of showing it should be a more formal situation, like talking to your professor, use the formal "usted" form. Their pattern is pretty consistent once you get used to it. Now if you don't know the verb forms, that is another issue. Duolingo doesn't specifically teach grammar, other than clicking on the little icon that shows you some grammar rules and verb conjugations. I think it's the lightbulb? But really, to learn the language, you will need to supplement a bit with something other than Duolingo. Grammar and conversation practice are probably the 2 things that you really need to find elsewhere.

    Why was I wrong, qué tal usted?

    Qué tal is more suitable in a situation where you ask (e.g.) your friend "What's up?" / "How's it going?".

    It is possible to translate "how are you?" to "que tal usted?" (and thus, it would be accepted as correct).... However, this is more accepted as the translation of "how about you?".

    I don't have fancy punctuation on my device. Maybe that's why my correct answers for this lesson are now incorrect. I'm sorry can't guess when you want formal used either if sir etc isn't included.

    Tardes is day and noches is evening. Your definition is incorrect.

    Tardes is afternoon/ early evening. Noches is late evening/ night. The owl is correct.

    why not Buenas tardes. ?que tal usted?

    February 13, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

    It's "how's it going" (not "how are you") and quite informal.

    Why was I wrong to answer "Buenas tardes, como le va a usted?"

    April 13, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

    'Buenas tardes' is fine, but after that you're saying "I eat (or 'as') he (/she/it) is going to you".

    what is wrong with ' que tal' if it is a friend

    April 16, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hacu.

    It's "how's it going" rather than "how are you".

    It didn't accept buenas tardes. Now it won't accept buenas noches. What?

    June 26, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AScam0

    I believe buenas noches is good night, not sure why it didn't accept buenas tardes for you though?
