I said the football game. We call it football here not soccer. It was not accepted
Football and soccer are different games. "Fútbol" means "soccer" when translated.
Football and soccer are only different games in America. "Fútbol" means football because you play the game with a ball and your feet.
It is called Football everywhere except in the US. I think Duo should give football in the options, not soccer.
Football is not soccer in any other country except in the U.S and Canada. Why are both football and soccer not both accepted? If you want to be pedantic, football and fútbol are direct translations of each other so Duo is actually incorrect.
I cannoy write the apostrophes using my phone so its always going to correct me can it just stop its annoying
You can go into your phone and select the keyboard or keyboards you desire. I use both Standard and Spanish keyboards and toggle between them by swipping my spacebar (android).
If you mean the letter accents, the install a Spanish keyboard. Hold down the letter and the accents for that letter will pop up. If you actually mean an apostrophe, then it is the single quotation mark.
if I said I am going to the match or game not even mention the word football tomorrow, anywhere in Britain, everyone would understand, if I said I am going to the soccer game tomorrow they would look at me as if I was daft and Britain is reputed to be where football originated
Hi i speak spanish yo escribi (The game soccer is not today) y aparecio que era incorrectapor que era así "The soccer_game is not today." Al parecer las palabras "game y soccer eran de formas contraria de como yo lo escribi, pero no lose. Bueno saludos a todos :)
the word soccer hurts me and english is not even my native language XD probably because fotbal is basicaly same, just ommiting extra o and l
Put "The footy match isn't today," to see if it's marked as correct - quite disappointed that it wasn't accepted.
I am having trouble getting the "El" accepted by spoken language lessons. I've tried speaking more slowly, and I've tried pausing briefly after saying "El" but usually it is not accepted. :(
I take umbridge with the sentence soccer (football really ) is not fun. This is wrong it's the best and most fun game in the world haha
Since fútbol can mean either football or soccer, how can you distinguish which game you are speaking about if you are speaking in general terms. Example: "Me gusta jugar fútbol". How does the other person know if I like to play football or soccer?
Odds are, when someone says football, they mean soccer. It's only in USA and Australia where they refer to football as soccer. Where I live, we call the other football, American Football just to make the distinction clear.
I think most people would say american football for football and football or soccer for soccer. We say Australian Football or Canadian Football or even Austrailian Rule Rugby to differentiate from normal rugby in America! Hope this helps
