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
You have made a small mistake.
La camisa es "the shirt" en inglés, no "a shirt".
Y la camiseta es " the T-Shirt" en inglés, no "a T-shirt".
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.
Yep! In fact, "comprar" is the base infinitive form of the verb meaning to "to buy". In Spanish, when you have two verbs next to each other, while the first is given one of the five or six simple-tense conjugations in agreement with the subject, the second verb must be in the base infinitive form. There's actually a similar rule in English: You don't say "I want I buy a shirt" after all, you say "I want TO buy a shirt".
As far as I can tell, "compraro" doesn't exist as a word. If you want "I buy a shirt.", that would be "Yo compro una camisa." and "I am buying a shirt." would be "Yo estoy comprando una camisa."
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.
I did "I want to get a shirt." and it said it was correct but it actually was wrong...
Just like with "el" and "la", it depends on the gender of the noun it's attached to. And to figure that gender out will require researching the noun itself. If it's masculine, use "un", if feminine use "una".
I was about to get out from level 3 and there was left only 1 mistake to do So I typed '' I want to buy a ❤❤❤❤'' instead of ''shirt''
It says that "comprar" means "buy" or "get," which are very different. How would I know if comprar is used as "buy" or "get?"
I did "I wanna buy a shirt" but it didn't accept. I think this should be fixed. Who agrees?
It said type in Spanish.I did and its was wrong bc it wanted it in English
I mis-spelled as "yo quiero comprar una caca", and only barely noticed before pressing OK. It seems like inglés is failing me as well.
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.
There is no sound when i am ask to repeat. i cannot say anything, i do not ear what is said
