Is this just the place for people to complain about the app! I am certainly enjoying it
Roughly speaking, "estar" (está) is used when describing something that can be changed (like emotions) and ser (es) is used when describing physical attributes and places/things that can't change. If your apartment is big, it's big. Feasibly you could change it by renovating and stuff, but speaking generally, your living space will always be the size that it is.
Using estar shows it's your personal perception but still works as a valid translation.
I do give the right Spanish sentence but it doesn't approve so I can't move on. Gives English translation instead! Pls. I don't want to lose my progress
It keeps only letting me click in my and nothing else. And it wont sgow the words it just shows lines.
Duolingo doesn’t accept ‘flat’ for ‘apartment’ here but does elsewhere, the report button doesn’t allow me to ask them to accept my answer as correct.
That's sad. So far, I have always been able to mark that my answer should be accepted. It doesn't change it from wrong to right, but I hope it makes someone aware that changes might need to be made.
When that happens, you should click on "report", then click on "My answer should be accepted." It won't make your answer right to them, but hopefully someone real will read it and see if there's a glitch that needs to be fixed.
She's saying "apartamente". I listened to it slowly. Because it is an o, not an e, at the end, the speaker should enunciate more clearly. Spanish is phonetic, and easy to spell when one hears it (except for memorizing some of the accent marks), as long as the person speaking is enunciating correctly.
I picked the middle button when i typed "apar" and i assumed it was apartment but it it went to apart. REEEEEE
Time to eat and rest. 'Tomorrow is another day'. However, I believe in 'strike while the iron is hot'. Unfortunately, my grasp of Spanish wasn't good enough yet!
