Yes! That's EXACTLY what I heard. Even on turtle speed, it was tienes.

Your answer says ‘how many cakes do you have’. The Statement is quieres, not tienes.

That joke went completely over your head.

I must confess to often confusing 'tienes' with 'quieres' in the aural questions. When they speak quickly it is difficult to distinguish the two so one is left to consider context and choose accordingly.

Would "cuánto pastel"be correct if the question was "how much cake do you want?", to which the answer could be "two slices"?

2 months ago

I do believe it would be understood. Whether or not it is the correct wording I couldn't say. You may want to use "Cuantas rebanandas de pastel" or maybe "Cuantas porcions de pastel", as both would directly translate to "How many slices of cake". However, I'm sure saying something like "How much cake" is acceptable.

I think it would be, but I'm not sure

I notice there seems to be a downward inflection at the end of a question when asked in Spanish while in English there usually is an upward inflection.

Is it just my imagination?

I've only noticed that on DuoLingo, and I'm pretty sure it's an error with the software. When I've heard real people speak Spanish, they seem to use an upward inflection on questions, just like in English.

I put "How many pieces of cake do you want?" and was marked wrong because I did not use "pie". I have been using "cake" for pasteles and this is the first time it has been marked wrong. It should be accepted

…But it was not asking, “How many pieces of cake,….” but, “How many cakes….”

Consider….

“We are having an office party and need a variety of cakes.”

“What did you have in mind?”

“Maybe some chocolate, some yellow cake, maybe some angel food cake, and carrot cakes.”

“Okay. How many cakes do you want?”

Is it just me or the "quieres" sounds like "quiares"?

Its most annoying when sometimes Duolingo accept a translation and then another time they reject it. Sometimes I could just throw it in the bin.
