The slow audio has an error. The fast audio says "fuimos", but the slow audio clearly says "fueron".
You are quiet right and has not been corrected. Same happened to me just now.
Still not fixed. But did you folks report it or just write here? Writing here doesn't help.
'Already' has to come either directly before the operative verb and directly after any auxiliary verbs, or at the end of a sentence.
We already went to that restaurant We went to that restaurant already.
We have already been... We have been... already.
We are already going... We are going... already.
Except that there are any number of communities in this country where the phrase "We went already - to that Restaurant" is perfectly normal and correct English. However, in the majority of cases your examples have the ring of credibility. I find myself increasingly frustrated, not to say annoyed, with Duo's seeming bias towards South American Spanish - to the point where what is normal in Spain is marked wrong!
Well PaulG0348, normal yes - but not strictly correct from a grammatical perspective. I'm using examples directly lifted from one of the Oxford coursebooks I teach.
Thank you DiskPidge for your thoughts. It was not my intention to challenge your comment but to add some inclusiveness and currency to text-book reference. After all, good dictionaries and text books keep up to date with current language usage. It is many years since I retired as a Lecturer but I am only too aware of the development of language, particularly through the monitoring of language used by younger generations. If this were not the case then we would still be using the language of Chaucer and his contemporaries! p.s. I am fully aware of the inappropriate nature of this discussion in this, Duo, environment! I will shut up now, innit!
" We already went to that restaurant" sounds perfectly normal. Another example: someone might say, "I'm going to make dinner" and the response could be "I already made it." You could also say, "I've already made it" and both would be correct.
Error in slow audio still not fixed July 28, 2018. It says fueron instead of fuimos.
The normal and slow speeds do not appear to use the same word. The slow speed clearly says fueron.
Can someone tell me how you know it is not "We were already at that restaurant" please?
When to use " nosotros " when to use " nosotras " ? I confuse a lot with this. I used " nosotros " & it was marked wrong. Please explain
Use "nosotros" when it is an all male or mixed group.
Use "nosotras" when it is an all female group.
In some exercises it is clear from a feminine form adjective that "nosotras" is needed. Otherwise, and without context, either should be correct.
If your answer is marked wrong, and you're sure you don't have other errors in your sentence, you should report it by clicking the report icon on the exercise page.
you get this question at level 22 - i get it at level 15...how does that work..?
Levels only relate to how many XP you have accumulated.
The way the crown system works, after you have completed level 1, you can move on to the next topic and even complete the tree without going to level 5 in all of the topics. Then you can go back later to complete unfinished topics.
I hope that makes sense.
