I was taught that putting "el" in front of a day of the week signifies an ongoing state, such as "is on Thursdays" or "is every Thursday." This sentence specifies a single day and therefore should be "es jueves." I have reported this, although there was no space for explaining why I believe "es jueves" should be the answer, if not an accepted answer. I would appreciate hearing from a moderator of the site, or a native speaker.

You got it slightly backwards. El is needed because we are talking about a specific thursday versus an on-going day of the week.

You're thinking of "los", which means "every" when used before days of the week.

Why is it "el jueves" and not "en jueves"?

I would say that "El partido de béisbol es jueves" is also possible, so you can omit the article. However, days of the week are not preceded by prepositions in Spanish, so you cannot say en jueves

Duolingo would not accept "es jueves". It marked it wrong and said I needed the "el".

You can't say "es jueves" because the sentence is talking about a specific thursday and not an ongoing weekly thursday match

In spanish, en in this case wouldnt make sense. Its like saying the game is on top of the day

I know that partido is correct but shouldn't juego also be accepted?

July 16, 2018

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

Yes, you are right! "partido" is probably better translated to "match" and "juego" = "game"

I was tought that partido is sports and juego is games, like chess or videojuegos

Why here is a need for 'el' before name of day? ( before 'jueves')

July 4, 2018

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

If you can say "on Monday" in EN, then you say "el lunes" en ES. But then why don't they accept juego instead of partido?

Am I hearing correctly that the "b" sounds more like "v" in some words like beisbol

September 2, 2018

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

I was taught to pronounce "b" as a blend of the "b" and "v" sound... Sort of like a "hard v".

That is exactly what I typed. What is my error?

I'm putting in the same answer that it's giving me, accents and all; but it's not giving me credit for my answer.

April 23, 2019

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

Again, I wrote "beisbol" without an accent on the "e" and it was correct, and Duo says it's also correct with an accent. I guess an accent is optional?

This program keeps quoting my exact words as an alternative rendering.

June 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cheryl890158

I think it is just trying to establish at this point, that there are many ways to say things? At least that is my take on this.

June 29, 2019

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

That happened to me once. At least it was rated correct!

June 20, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scameron777

Why won't duolingo allow me to see my answers to see what I wrote? It blocks it with the correction.
