Translation:The movie is on Sunday.
I answer "the film" and get marked wrong
Duolingo doesn't like British English.
As did I.
why do some sentences require el before a day of the week and some do not?
In this context "el" mean on
El can mean 'on' or 'his' or 'the'... it's kinda dumb
His is marked by an accent: él
Why 'es' and not 'esta'?
The verb “ser” instead of “estar” is used for permanent attributes, which includes time. Things like dates, days, years, time, seasons, are considered permanent. This sentence talks about the movie being on Sunday, which is a day.
Show / movie?
TV Show = programa de televisión, while movie/film = película
Idk tue difference
The* Lol sorry sometimes I write to fast
