"¿Es tu película favorita?"
Translation:Is it your favorite movie?
Es tu pelicula favorita?
How does this mean: " Is it your favorite movie?"
I read this by all I have learned so far as "Is this your favorite film?"
'Es' means 'it is' or in this case 'is it'. 'Is this' would require a demonstrative pronoun like 'esta' or 'esa'.
While I would agree that it doesn't really make a lot of difference, I've noticed that DL is very strict about it.
I got this nonsense as well. It cost me one correct answer as I'm testing out of Level 4 of this skill. Reported.
Favorita is Feminine vs Favorito is Masculine. Gender of words is muy importante en Español!
Why "película", does this (I assume fairly recent) word originate from another verb or noun?
On its own, Latin pellicula is a diminutive of pellis (skin) which in Spanish gives piel. So, a película is ultimately a thin skin or layer.
