"¿Por qué no vemos la tele?"
Translation:Why don't we watch TV?
Is this a suggestion to watch the telly? I know English can use a sentence like this for that purpose but what about Spanish? The imperative would be 'veamos la tele'.
Ver la tele is a fixed expression. Mirar is actually to look at so it doesn’t make sense
In previous skills i remember Duolingo wanted "mirar" not "ver" for "watching" television. hence the confusion.
it could be a suggestion to watch tv or somebody asking why everyone else watches tv but we don't type of thing :)
