"¿Tus padres son americanos?"
Translation:Are your parents American?
I answered with 'are your fathers american?' and it was right. I love how gay friendly Duolingo is.
I agree. This drives me crazy about the female voice. She never uses an inflection that denotes a question.
"Americans" is being used like an adjective, so it doesn't need to match in number.
This sounds like a statement rather than a question, especially without the question intonation. THIS IS WHY IT IS BETTER TO START QUESTIONS WITH A VERB IF 'QUE' 'COMO' 'DONDE' 'CUANDO' 'CUAL' 'QUIEN' O 'POR QUE' ARE NOT AVAILABLE!!!
Why is everything either mexican or american? What is this obsession with america still like its the coolest place to be? Ugh.
