"Estoy cansado y quiero dormir."
Translation:I'm tired and I want to sleep.
¨¨Tengo sueño.¨is like "I.m sleepy." "Estoy cansado" is like "I am tired, weary, exhausted."
"Tengo sueño" implies you want to sleep. You can say "estoy cansado" if you are tired of studying, playing football or visiting your in-laws, even if those don't necessarily make you sleepy.
Why is this a woman's voice saying this sentence using masculine adjectives? This is very misleading to students!
Why does DL say I'm wrong when I put "...I want sleep." Why does it have to be "to sleep?"
This was meant for me... I just woke up.. To do Duolingo... And this is my first sentence...........................................
Dun dun dunnnnnnn
Are they in English? "I'm sleepy" expresses a condition. "I want to sleep" expresses a desire or need. Maybe the speaker has insomnia, and can't sleep because he isn't in the least bit sleepy.
Why won't it allow i am tired and want to sleep. Marked me wrong because i left out the 'i' before want to slerp
