Although English requires an indefinite article before one's occupation, Spanish does not.
It is more often used when the occupation has an adjective to describe it: Él es un estudiante inteligente. Ella es una médica muy simpática.
In addition to occupation, also nationality, religion, social roles (housewife, student), identity. https://www.realfastspanish.com/grammar/spanish-articles
The sentence is a question. "el es un estudiante" is more of a statement. While it can also be used as a question, the phrase "el es estudiante?" more directly translates to "is he a student?".
Yes, Unfortunately, DL tends to use the indicative sentence structure for questions rather than the more standard inverted order that Spanish uses. In both English and Spanish, the indicative structure relies on rising intonation at the end of the sentence.
It asked me what one two three was, Image link https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DF3QnzokiT83CwIds3P2_y6miXaDzdNeml9BeH5pKwY/edit?usp=sharing
No. El es estudiante means he is a student. But estudio means study, though. Hope this helps!
I put, he is student? Because that is the direct translstion but apparently it didnt take that as an answer so why didnt they put un? Then i would have put he is a student? Thst would hsve msde more sense to me. I cant figure out why though. A little help please?
There are situations in which Spanish doesn't use "un" whereas English uses "a". See this: https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/using-the-indefinite-article-in-spanish
P.S. I encourage you to use good punctuation and spelling. Otherwise, I suspect you will be marked wrong many more times by DUO.
After 10 mistakes, I gave up counting. All the mistakes make you difficult to understand (hard to figure out).
I got it right and I said "he Is a student".... yes, the capital "I" was there.
Am I the only one who keeps thinking it says "eres estudiante" .. would that sentence be wrong?
