Translation:They left from here, but they did not go to school.
It's grammatically correct in English, but sounds unnatural without its context. The two parts of the compound sentence do not feel as if they belong together. Better might be "Mereka pergi ke sana, tapi mereka tidak ke sekolah" or "Mereka pergi dari sini, tapi mereka tidak dari sekolah".
I agree. It could almost work, but I can't imagine a context in which I would say exactly that. If this is describing a repeated situation, "leave" is more idiomatic - to me, anyway: "They leave from here, but they do not go to school." The past tense version works a little better - "They went from here, but they did not go to school." (That would have to be a one-time occurrence; even here, "they left from here" seems better.)
Google translate says "They leave here, but they don't go to school" which I like better.
keep in mind that learning another language is learning how to express thoughts as opposed to simply learning word replacements -- direct translations are sometimes going to be a bit wonky. Keep in mind that this course its still beta and Dualingo has an Indonesian to English course that I'm guessing is causing some cross lesson issues BTW, another way to say this phrase in English may be, "They left but they didn't go to school"
i had write my sentence in present but it seems like it was only for the past tense
They went from here, but they did not go to school. School is missing in ranslation
Why can't I say go to THE school? I know there is no "itu" at the end, but most such cases it could be translated that way
"Itu" would make it "that school", not "the school" - "the school" should be fine here
I feel this should be a possible translation: "They're going from here but not going to school"
I HATE this sentence... it's unnatural, long, and is appearing a bloody million times in this lesson. Dear contributors please add some more sentences to this subject, because it's becoming INCREDIBLY BORING when only a couple sentences have to be repeated again a stupidly large number of times! THANKS
Sorry if my comments rubs someone the wrong way. I'm doing every single exercise, I don't "jump" and I do believe this chapter has too few sentences to fill up
