I agree with T.J. Also to add that listo means smart when used with ser.
Mi hijo es listo. My son is smart.
Mi hijo está listo. My son is ready.
I'm assuming so. Word for word translations don't always work, and not all words in one language have a word in another language. In English intelligent is synonymous with smart although it is a stronger word, so inteligente is probobly the closest translation. I don't know for sure so don't take my word as scripture, but that's how I understand it.
I think so, I assume intelligent is basically a synonym for smart.
As of September 25th, 2018, it hasn't been fixed. I don't see an option to report it.
How can you know the difference between hijo and hijo (one of them is son and the other one is child)
Hijo is used for son (or your male child), hija is used for daughter (or your female child). If you are talking about a child that is not yours you use nino, or nina.
I've heard Hispanic people use mijo and mija for son and daughter. Can someone explain the difference between that and hijo ans hija?
Looking it up sounds like it came from "mi hijo", but the way I hear it used is a term of endearment like baby. Like I worked with an older woman before that called people mijo/mija. It doesn't literally mean baby but it seems to be used in the same context baby is in English, including when not directly referencing a literal baby
Es is the conjugation of the verb ser, and esta is the conjugation of the estar. I'm not sure when you use one or the other.
I was told to type what I heard..I heard in español..answered correctly but they wanted english....thats not what the question asked for???
It sounds like the g in "inteligente" is pornounced like an "h," is that how it is supposed to be pronounced?
Please let me repeat the sentence until I get it right, or at least give me the option, such a pain when you get the RED incorrect even when you believe you have said it correctly. The audio part of Duolingo is definitely the most problematic part I find.
Repeated the phrase completely and correctly and was given an incorrect!!!
THEY NEED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT WE NEED TO TYPE IT IN SPANIIIIIIIISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
