"El martes pasado nosotros practicamos para el concierto."
Translation:Last Tuesday we practiced for the concert.
For those learning UK English, when used as a verb, 'practised' is spelled with an 's', not 'c'.
Is there a different word for rehearse? When I used rehearsed instead of practiced, I was marked incorrect.
I wrote "on Tuesday we practiced for the concert", it's still a past tense.
Did Duolingo tell you that your answer was wrong?
It's a fine line we cross with the exchange of words. On Tuesday we practiced does not seem to work the same way as last Tuesday we practiced even though it infers that it was last Tuesday that we practiced.
Okay, I imagine it doesn't feel good to be mistaken. Even so, it's good for the soul when you experience your feelings, regardless of whether the feelings are pleasing to feel or displeasing to feel.
Regarding the fine line, sure. It's a fine line sometimes. There is a silver lining in the clouds though. As time goes by, I am slowly becoming better at making myself clear to my audience.
It seems they use the word practicar and jugar for the word 'played' but here its practised. How can we tell the difference
Edit: your question is an excellent question! Or we might better describe your comment as an observation. I am sorry that I became confused for about five hours before I correctly understood what you said. d'oh! ⁚•⁌ My bad.
"To play" is a less commonly used translation for practicar unless the direct object is sports. In this Duolingo exercise, there are not very many contextual clues to help us decide between play and practice, are there? Because of the ambiguity, I conclude that both answers are correct translations to this Duolingo exercise.
Your translation is not colloquial English because you included one word that you should have omitted.
Aside from your English mistake, your error also serves as an example of why it is important to study the Spanish definite article. There are a lot of students of the Spanish language who don't study the Spanish definite article.
