"Ellas aprenden en la escuela."

Translation:They are learning at school.

June 18, 2018



Shouldn't it be "They learn in the school" instead of "They are learning at school?"


Either "They learn in the school" or "They are learning at school" is an acceptable translation of "Ellas aprenden en la escuela."


Ellas or Ellos should be accepted. The speaker's inability to pronounce the word correctly should not be held against the student.


When the slow pronounciation is used then it is clear what she says. On normal speed definitely not. Far too fast.


That's what the flag button is for.


Could you please explain that? Which flag button? Where can I find it?

Thanks for your very useful answer. I gave you a lingot for this. Well deserved.


why is it that when saying "at school" the article is necessary (en la escuela), but when saying "at home" it is not (en casa)? i have come to accept that these are both correct, i am just wondering if there's a rule behind it


Q1. Why is 'They learn at the school' and 'They learn in the school' not accepted as an answer? Q2. Why is 'They are learning at the school' not accepted too?


"They're learning at the school" was rejected. I reported it.


they learn in the school----- accepted 2/27/19


Difference betwreb escuela, colegio, and instituto? I seem to be taught a different word all the time


How to use "Ellas" and "Ellos" in sentence. Can you explain the difference.


"Ellas" and "ellos" are both "they". You use "ellas" to refer to an all female group. You use "ellos" to refer to an all male group or to a group containing both males and females even if it is 99 females and 1 male.


I listened to her three times and EVERY time she said "ella" NOT ellas and "aprende"---makes it hard to learn!


Same problem. It's not clear whether is ellos or ellas


when I hear the pronunciation at slow speed it sound like the singular for both Ella, as I hear it and aprende, as I hear it. I don't hear the 's' for Ellas or the 'n' in aprenden


Wouldn't count it as correct until I put a period at the end.


I ueed Ellos. Shouldnt this be accepted


at school and at the school have the same meaning in English, My answer is right.


Why cant Duo allow ellos or ellas when translating from the spoken voice? It is sometimes impossible to hear whether she says ellas or ellos and when you get the essential meaning of the statement right it is a frustrating and time-wasting to have to do it all again!


soo no "ellas están aprendiendo en la escuela"


It is impossible to guess whether an English sentence without the definite article would require one in Spanish, and vv.
