"Yo quiero comprar una camisa."
Translation:I want to buy a shirt.
Pagar es el verbo para "to pay" en ingles.
Y comprar es el verbo para "to buy" en ingles.
Estes dos verbos no son los mismos.
This is for English language speakers learning basic Spanish. We don't know what you just said.
I'll try to translate what Andrew said for you. - "Pager" is the verb for "to pay" in English and "comprar" is the verb for "to buy" in English. These two verbs are not the same
La camisa is a shirt while la camiseta is a T-shirt which is more casual clothing
Still, i dont know the difference. Would you wear a shirt at the office,and a tshirt on holiday?
T-Shirt (wore on a day off or when going to the beach) is what you wear with the logo or picture of your favorite band or singer.
While a Shirt (More casual or business casual) could be either a Polo or Dress shirt.
Hope this helps.
Because 'comprar' means 'to buy'. To be boring, it's an infinitive verb... and in English, infinitive verbs are expressed as 'to...' plus the verb base. E.g., 'to sleep', 'to buy'. Peeps would never say "I want buy a shirt." Similarly, they'd never say "I want to to buy a shirt."
It may be boring, but you just solved one of the biggest issues ive had with the Spanish language. Thank you so much TheArtOfFHP, enjoy a few lingots.
So, why is comprar so difficult to pronounce? I can roll my r's pretty well, but not on this word. Yet. Help!
These Rs you don't need to roll, only lilt them (have your toungue almost flap against your pallete like your about to pronounce the letter L).
Spanish has two types of Rs, the rolling ones and the lilted ones. If the letter appears at the start of the word (like in "rojo") or if its a double R (like in "perro"), you roll it. Otherwise it should be lilted.
There is no sound when i am ask to repeat. i cannot say anything, i do not ear what is said
I can hear now, i changed my ear phones, they were the problem. Duolingo is realy 2 languages for me because I am french and have to think in english so I learn 2 languages at the same time. I'm not bad in english but I have to think. It's a lot of fun. Lots of words are close to french and that helps.
I have the exact translation as written below and they said it was wrong
