"You write with a pen."
Translation:Tú escribes con un bolígrafo.
on multiple choice, If the clue has the word "pen" and only one of the possible answers has the work "boligrafo" it is not much of a test
Before the upgrade, most often, the multiple choice problems didn't even apply to the lessons. So that is an improvement.
In case anyone is interested, "pluma" is the more common way to say "pen" in Mexico.
Escribes con un boli.
It was accepted.
Although the offer escribe in the hints, only escribes is correct. So when would i use escribe?
If you chose to use polite/formal "usted" :-)
Usted escribe con un bolígrafo.
how about telling us WHY what we have chosen is incorrect. Ie i technically wrote the correct words but wrong usage. So we dont have to go to google and find out why the sentence is structured diferently.
Why didn't you ask about it here? There are advanced students who come into the Comments who could have explained it to you. That is what the Comments are for, and not talking about other ways to say stuff in English.
With respect, the english is lacking in many places through bad syntax and those already with experience in the target language will often see an american english which bears no relation in meaning to the sentence displayed. Its a great app but the whole point of learning relies on good english grammar and syntax. I do hope they will purge their english throughout the courses. The problem exists across the five languages which I am studying so is definitely widespread.
You is Tú when talking in family, friends and you is usted when wishing to keep a polite level with bosses for example. In english we have I write, he writes, they write etc. But spanish goes further with their changes. Yo escribo. I write. You write (for friends) Tu escibes. You write (formal) is usted escribe. Different again for we and they.
Footnote. The escibir means 'to write'. Any time you wish to say for example ''I need 'to write' a letter'', you would put 'Yo necesito escribir una carta. "I want 'to write' a letter" Yo quiero escribir una carta'
