I put "You will drink until nighttime." and it was marked incorrect... does that not make sense?
Because "You will drink until the night." is awkward English: Normally, one would say ... until nighttime.
in English we would normally say something after "the night". If one is referring to "tonight" we could also say "You will drink until night". Even though that was marked wrong...:(
I put the same (still marked incorrect) and told the right answer was "You will drink until tonight" but shouldn't that be esta noche?
Should work. Till is a synonym for until. I believe 'till' is the older word, that morphed into 'until.'
I thought she said "viviras". "You will live until the night, caped crusader!" Really disappointed it wasn't the real sentence.
"the" is superfluous and awkward in this sentence. It would only be appropriate in a sentence like "you will drink until the night of your big test." The proper way to say this is "you will drink until night." To say "you will drink until the night" sounds like an incomplete thought that prompts the question, "which night?"
I'm a native English speaker, so... "You will drink until night" sounds awkward to me. I would second "you will drink until nighttime." But i might prefer, "you will drink until nightfall. "
In the new format, the correct answer does not appear in the list of options, so cannot complete the section!
The correct answer, 'beberas', is not given in the options, so how is one supposed to select it?
I think the answer given is poor English. I'd always say "drink until night" without the word "the"
I find that Duolingo often falts an English translation, here for example, "until night" and seems to only accept "until the night." I read hundreds of books a year and try to follow what seems to be acceptable American English translations. I find it frustrating that Duolingo so often accepts English translations that seem unnatural and the faulty translations of non-native English speakers.
What is the meaning? I see lots of dicussion about the translation. Are you going to stop drinking at sun down or sun rise?
