  5. "No, gracias, no quiero frijo…

"No, gracias, no quiero frijoles."

Translation:No, thank you, I don't want beans.

June 16, 2018



Beans, beans, they're good for your heart. The more you eat them, the more you fart. The more you fart, the better you feel, So eat your beans, every meal.


Beans and legumes are the fruits or seeds of a family of plants called Fabaceae. They are commonly eaten around the world and are a rich source of fiber and B vitamins. They are also a great replacement for meat as a source of vegetarian protein.

Beans and legumes have a number of health benefits, including reducing cholesterol, decreasing blood sugar levels and increasing healthy gut bacteria.


I said...no thank you i do not want beans. How is this wrong


It is not an accurate translation of the Spanish sentence, meaning, that is not what the Spanish sentence said.


"No, ta, I don't want beans". Was shown as he correct answer. I think they misspelled "thanks". Also correct would have No, i don't want beans. Thanks. This was marked incorrect


is "judias" still possible?


yes it is - on mainland Spain, I have only ever heard "judias" for "beans". In Costa Rica I have heard "frijoles". New World usage, I suppose.


My sentence with frijoles should be accepted. IT IS VERY COMMON IN AMERICA!!!!!!


Did you report it? The mods check reports; they don't always check these threads (and even if they did, you forgot to include what your sentence was).


Using a Spanish word in an English sentence when there exists a perfectly commonly used English word makes no sense in a lesson about Spanish. The idea is to provide a translation to English.


I used the words I do not instead of don't and that was marked incorrect


you should report it.


Thanks isn't ok for gracias?


My bad. Nevermind.


My problem is not with the translation, but with the enunciation. Too often, when the "speaker" gets to the last word, the volume and pronunciation goes away, and I just hear a soft sound. I know this word, and when pronounced correctly, it's easy to understand. Yet I listened to this audio over and over, and never did hear "frijoles". If only someone would check out these audios before releasing them to us. If only.


Who doesnt want beans this is a serious issue we need the police on this


Two general questions to satisfy my curiosity. On these verbal challenges, why do some of the words come up black, as opposed to blue and secondly, why does Duo sometimes grade the response before you finish replying?


why no article here: "no quiero frijoles" but must use article here: quiero "la comida frita" and "quiero la cerveza"?


Same question. I just read the tip that said "you must use 'the' before nouns".


Here in Chile, we usually use the word "porotos" here. I wonder if this would ve accepted by Duolingo?


It usually accepts it.


i wrote, 'No thanks, i don't want beans. That was deemed wrong and the correct answer being, 'No thank you. I don't want beans.'!!!!!


Pero los frijoles son la fruta magia!


What is my mistake


A teraz ..... [Co znaczy beans]


On a previous question I typed los frijoles - marked wrong


"Los frijoles" made my answer wrong for the reverse translation of this. Forgetting the "la" before cerveza made that one wrong. How do you know when to use el, la etc before a noun?


I just missed commas and it is not accepted


No quiero is first person, not second, you isn't correct!
