A pesar de would more correctly be traslated into English as "despite."

June 1, 2014

"Despite" is essentially an intelligent way of saying "Even though".

Where is coma used?

August 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/George_Gibson_77

Coma is the 1st and 3rd person singular of comer in the present subjunctive, which has not been studied yet, It can also be translated into English as coma and comma. Coma does not exist in the present indicative which is all we have studied to this point.

So two options are exactly the same but marked as incorrect even though they are the same as the 'correct solution'! No wonder 300 people 'discussed' this. But as I post, it says 'No one has commented yet.' LOL .... Duolingo really keeps us on our toes! 15 Feb 2018

Slightly off-topic - would it be correct for me to say 'Él no come pescado sino pollo'? Pero/sino confuses me a little so any clarification would be appreciated.

October 21, 2014

A good way to remember the difference, in my humble opinion, is pero = but and sino = rather.

Come pollo aunque no come pescado. Second "come" I believe is correct - not "coma"

February 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JGR854365

third person singular present tense of "comer" is "come", not "coma", contrary to what this item indicates

February 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/b-reasonable

When you gave me this before, I got it wrong for using Come both phrases. It was corrected to use coma in the second phrase. So this time, I used coma and it counted it wrong and said to use come both phrases. MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!!!

They should accept pez

May 30, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arsenal09490

If I'm not mistaken, pez refers to an alive fish (like in the wild or as a pet). Pescado refers to fish as a food(usually cooked).

June 10, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ShaunOfTheLive

Correct. Pescado is also a past participle verb that means "fished". So the noun form is a fish that has been fished (not necessarily cooked, but caught).

This is similar to the etymology of the word "emparedado" for sandwich: it comes from the past participle verb meaning "sandwiched".

November 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_Natz_

Hi March :). Your pero no is correct in the real world, but DL doesn't want you to change the meaning of its sentences when you translate and aunque better communicates 'even though'. As for sino vs pero, pero is used in cases like this where the first clause is positive - he does eat chicken - él come pollo pero no come pescado. Sino would be used if the first clause of the sentence were negative, ie, él no come pescado, sino pollo. Sino means more like 'rather' or 'but rather'. Hope that helps!

November 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarchVsSpanish

Wow thank you! So: -If the first part is positive: pero -If the first part is negative: sino Thanks!
