I think this sentence is mixed up. It is either "There were some rainy months". or "They were rainy months." The first sentence says that during a specific period of time some of the months were rainy. The second sentence describes specific months as being rainy.

They were months with a lot of rain. I'm surprised this was rejected. I've seen this debate in both the French and Spanish forums so many times I can't can't count, that debate being whether or not "some" is necessary in english. In this case it is not necessary. If Duo wants us to specifically translate "unos" then it should construct sentences that require its direct translation in English.

I think you are right Seattle scott. If Duo uses "There" and "some" in the same sentence then that is ok; but if Duo uses "They" then "some" should not be used unless Duo uses Exclamation Marks to mean that: !They were really, really rainy! Even then the sentence does not sound ok in English. So I think your sentence should be accepted and mine "They were rainy months."

"They were some months with a lot of rain," that sentence sounds a bit clumsy. But they did accept my answer of "It was a few months of heavy rain."

It seems they've changed their minds. I've just revised this unit 3 days later and they've marked that wrong!

"They were some months with a lot of rain." Que poca!

Me da ganas de decir eso con un acento sureno. Well gee Jimbo, they were some months with a lot of rain, yeeehaw.

En otras palabras, no tiene sentido.

"They were very rainy months" is not accepted, despite it being a lot less awkward than the given translation.
