  5. "We are not angry now."

"We are not angry now."

Translation:No estamos enojadas ahora.

June 16, 2018



English "we" is gender neutral so how are we supposed to know it was enojadas and not enojados (unless I've missed something glaringly obvious - I'm a beginner)


Outside of a sentence being spoken by a female voice, there is no way of knowing if (Estamos-We Are); refers to Females only, Mixed company, or Males only.
Then again, Duo also exacerbates gender confusion by switching/mixing the speakers.


Thank you! That's what I suspected. I'm happy that Duolingo has now added some grammar tips to each unit, some simple explanations were really needed.


I had the same problem - I assumed a masculine or mixed group which would require "enojados".


I also had this problem


"No estamos enojados ahora" is currently accepted.


When in doubt, assume the masculine form.


Estamos no enojadas ahora.

Is this wrong? If so can anybody help me out with an explanation?


I am asking the same thing... any answers?


it just doesnt make sense with spanish grammar.


why can't it be " estamos no enohadas ahora".


No must be in front of to be.. Cmiiw


The old version allowed me to see what i had written when i had made a mistake, and reflect on the differences with the correct answer. Not possible with new version


I agree, when the answer is long part of the sentence goes out of sight, and predictive text may change something without you noticing!!!


Why isn't it "Estamos no enojadas ahora."?


Why the feminine here for angry? There is no indication of gender anywhere in the sentence.


Confusing gender just dosent help , especially when ones i done it and it was refused, please duolingo just stuck to one male or female and stop ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ around, please excuse my French, hasta luego amigo


There should not be an incorrect answer for "enojados" since gender is ambiguous in the question.


Aren't "somos" and "estamos" interchangeable?


Most certainly not. Somos is the we-form is the verb ser, estamos is the we-form of the verb estar. Two different verbs, which both happen to be translated as 'to be'.

You can remember when to use Ser with 'e-Doctor': Event, Description, Occupation, Characteristic, Time, Origin, Relationship. You can remember when to use Estar with 'Places': Position, Location, Action, Condition, Emotion, State.

In this case, we are not angry NOW. This is our current state - and also anger is an emotion. We have to used Estar.


I just use the T in the word. The "T" word is for temporary situations: Soy/estoy, somos/estamos, ser/estar, etc. It may not be 100% accurate but it wins me most of the time.


Somos is permanent estamos is temporary


Thank you, I've been trying to figure out what is the difference between somos and estamos.

I can't remember where I read this 'saying', but covers 'most' and helped me a lot. 'How you feel or where you are, always use the verb 'star'.


When will Duolingo indicate the gender of the speaker?


Is enojada always feminine?


Yes. Enojado is an adjective and adjectives agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. For example: Él no está enojado ahora - He is not angry now. Ella no está enojada ahora - She is not angry now. Ellos no están enojados ahora - They (a group of men or a mixed group of men and women) are not angry now. Ellas no están enojadas ahora - They (a group of women) are not angry now.


Why is 'nosotros somos no enojados ahora ' incorrect?


Think about the fact that ahora is feminine. It might not actually be correct as usually ahora affects nothing else in a typical sentence. Could be just duo.


I had two choices the feminine or masculine, nothing indicated it was feminine, so I went with the masculine, because as I understand, the masculine form is accepted whne you are speaking of a group mixed with males and females. Why not enojados?


¿Por que no "estamos no enojada ahora"? fue marcardo incorrecto.


Negation has to go before the verb, so "no estamos." Also "enojada" needs to be plural to agree with "estamos (we), so "enojadas".
"Enojados" should also be accepted.


I used enojamos instead of enojados and was marked correct with the suggestion to use enojados.


I still don;t know when to use estan or estamos.



yo estoy ( I am)

tú estás (You [familiar] are)

él, ella, Ud. está (He, She, [You formal] are)

nosotros estamos (We are)

vosotros estáis ( You plural [familiar] are)

ellos, ellas, Uds. están (They Are)


huff FOR THE LAST TIME I FORGOT THE LAWS OF LANGUAGE FOR SPANISH (i wrote estamos no enojadas ahora insted of no estamos enojadas ahora)


Το Nosotros τι σου φταιει γαμω το σπιτακι μου?


I'm confused because I thought you had anger, like fear etc and used tener, can anyone help. thanks
