"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.
¨¨Tengo sueño.¨is like "I.m sleepy." "Estoy cansado" is like "I am tired, weary, exhausted."
Why does DL say I'm wrong when I put "...I want sleep." Why does it have to be "to sleep?"
Why is this a woman's voice saying this sentence using masculine adjectives? This is very misleading to students!
Agreed. This is very annoying and distracting, and they do it a lot. I got the meaning of the sentence but had to replay it to make sure I heard a woman speaking a man's part.
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
