Wouldn't the translation be "the women talk in the library" because there is no 'are' in the Spanish sentence?
Both translations are correct. If yours wasn't accepted, you can use the Report button to bring it to the attention of the course contributors.
Yes, to say "the women are speaking" it would be "las mujeres estan hablando" not "las mujeres hablan"
Remember that the present tense (indicative) in Spanish means three things.
Tú hablas inglés. You speak English. You do speak English. You are speaking English. Tú comes pan. You eat bread. You do eat bread. You are eating bread. Tú vives en Buenos Aires. You live in Buenos Aires. You do live in Buenos Aires. You are living in Buenos Aires.
It technically means the same but like in the Spanish language which I speak some like the arse mean the same as other words but doesn't necessarily have 2 be there
