"I want to live in a pretty town."
Translation:Quiero vivir en un pueblo bonito.
Hold up, hold up, hold up Duolingo!!! You really marked my answer wrong because I put "yo" in front of it when every other time I don't put "yo" in front of something you say "Another correct answer: Yo tengo un gato" WHAT THE HECK!?!?!
PREHAPS THE USE OF "YO" IS UNNECESSARY OR REDUNDANT BUT I DO NOT SEE WHY IT IS WRONG. I WAS ALSO MARKED WRONG
"Yo quiero" is perfectly acceptable here. Please correct your error.
I put Yo before Quiero and it marked it as incorrect. IMHO Duolingo is not perfect, but it still works quite well. My Spanish is improving.
I am so pleased that it is not just me. Beginning to rue spending so many hours and seeming not to be progressing. So thank you for helping me feel a little better about it.
Adding the 'yo' adds emphasis it isn't strictly required but then it wasn't strictly required in all of the earlier questions where it was marked as correct - so as per other users comments please can we ensure consistency in the way in which these questions are marked OR at some stage make it clear that from this point onwards 'Yo" will only be used for emphasis etc...
"yo" is not incorrect. I get it, one can choose to only use the correct verb without a pronoun but it shouldn't be wrong to use a pronoun
There teaching you that its ok to not always say yo because tengo already means i have.
i put Quiero vivir en un pueblo bonita what is wrong with that? will someone plz explain
I believe it is because pueblo is masculine and you should have used bonito. You correctly used "un" pueblo but then switched to the feminine bonita.
Please improve your consistency when the sentence begins with a personal pronoun. Sloppy programming!!!!
have the same problem here! i'm sure putting "yo" in the sentence doesn't make it wrong! PLEASE FIX IT!!!
How to understand if a noun is masculine or feminine? Are there any rules or this is something we have to just memorise?
Most of the time if it ends in "a" it is feminine and if it ends in "o" it is masculine... but there are many exceptions. https://www.thoughtco.com/words-that-break-the-gender-rule-3078133
How are yall entering YO when there is no word box that contains the word YO? *Looking thru comments... Maybe it's fixed now! 9/21/18
Sometimes you don't need to put Yo and it still does the job because of the verb related to Yo... like (Yo) Quiero or (Yo) Necesito
I put the exact answer and it marked it as wrong, I think they need to fix this.
I had android problems and was logged out of duolingo. I tried to log back in and was not allowed to reset password. I had to start all over. Is there any way to remedy this?
