"Is their home on the left side of the hospital?"


July 18, 2018



Translating from english, there are two options that aren't accepted, but should be: 他们 in place of 她们, and 在不在... as an alternative of 在...吗. Especially the latter one, as it was mentioned in one of the lessons before this level.


Why would you use 是 in "饭馆的左边是医院。" (previous question), but then you use 在 here?? And why can't you say "医院的左边是他们的家吗?" Like they do in the other example?
