Is pueblo not a "village"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheHandShand

Village or town. Either one.

I think that descending in size: 1. City (has a cathedral, many thousands inhabitants) = ciudad 2.Town (thousands inhabitants) = villa, pueblo 3. Village = pueblo pequeño, poblado, población, aldea [the above contain neighborhoods= barrios, blocks= manzanas] 4. Hamlet = ranchería, comunidad 5. Ranch = hacienda, rancho

In some parts the programme accepts city for pueblo and in others it does not.

Usually Duolingo translates "city" as ciudad, and "town" or "village" is matched with pueblo.

I was marked correct for saying "El pueblo tiene dos supermercado".

How can I move forward with the shame of this hanging over me?

Timothy, we all make these mistakes. You can only try to go on and prove yourself eventually. Climb the ladder, learn your grammar, defeat Duo in unarmed combat, and claim your title as Champion of Spanish!

We cannot see your answer here, so copy it here to discuss it. It depends also on which exercise you had.

There is no 'two' in the original list, so I cannot choose it.

Grocery store should be marked as correct.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALLintolearning3

No, a grocery store would not be a supermarket and it would be “un mercado” instead.

"dos" = "two"

The symbol is the same in both languages: 2.

(Spanish) 2 = (English) 2 = (Latin) II
