Correct, however it's safer to use the direct translation if you're talking about a husband/wife specifically.
Poor audio, it sounds like 'es pos'. I was marked wrong at first even after listening to the slow version.
"Esposa" and "esposo" are wife (esposa) and husband (esposo).
'Mujer' just means "woman".
"Marido" is exclusive to 'husband' (it's masculine; no feminine variant exists).
However, if you mean this in The sense of a couple (Mi mujer = My woman/Mi marido = My husband), then yes, these terms are relatively similar to each other.
Yes, it is the same. In Spain, men adress their wife as "mujer".
Where is your wife? - ¿Dónde está tu mujer?
My wife is in the toilet. - Mi mujer está en el baño.
My wife is in the bathroom - I can't imagine a woman small enough to get inside a toilet.
The audio for esposa is weird, it just sounds like "espos", and since I'm trying to learn by ear it makes it difficult
Native Spanish speaker here. The sound is so weird. It sounds like "espozsa". Please, try to fix it. Thanks in advance ;-)
Is it just me or sometimes I hear "esposo" instead of "esposa". Is the letter at the end of the word "esposo/esposa" not emphasized when spoken in Spanish? Thank you.
It is emphasized. I think that Duolingo uses a robot and I think that is why we can't understand the audio.
these audio clips aren't great. it's cutting off the last syllable of every phrase, sometimes the whole last word is gone. i've tried turning the volume way up but it's not that it's quiet, the audio clip is cut off, even the super slow version. Every phrase where the only difference is the last syllable like this one, i just have to guess. it's frustrating.
i notice that all the other comments about this issue have a negative score, i wonder why that is.
it's because the audio here (female/good quality) is different from the one in the question (male/bad quality).
But you told me esposo means husband now you gave me wrong and telling me that esposo means partner
The audio in the test was a man saying "Mi espose", the audio here is a woman saying "Mi esposa"
Omg im so good at spanish already and i have a bad memory but ik it all and im only ten i have a hispanic friend too so ik it all ;)
