  5. "Di sore hari, dia minum bir."

"Di sore hari, dia minum bir."

Translation:In the evening, she drinks beer.

August 20, 2018



This entire lesson has errors in nearly every English translation. Suggest the editors do a thorough review. The challenge is that the Indonesian can be imprecise and be reflected in English in multiple ways. The only way to get through the lesson is to use the Word Bank instead of typing natural English translations.


Agree, this section is confusing the hell out of me. I'm not at all clear what exactly when to use sore, siang and petang.


I am just learning like you, but what it seems to be according to me is: Pagi: the morning

Siang: the noon and early afternoon

Sore: the late afternoon until evening

Petang: when sun is set but it's not completely dark yet, the dusk, night is about to arrive closely

Malam: night. As long as there is no sunlight whatsoever.


should be 'beer' not 'beers'


Surely afternoon is an acceptable translation of "sore"


In the late afternoon she drinks beer.


Petang ive hardlynheard used in bali. Ive been told siang is 11 tomaround 3pm and sore is 3pm till dark. And yes this is wrong!!!!!


Sore not evening Beer not beers


I agree. Please correct the English in this lesson! No one speaks like that.


No one use petang ... In Jawa tengah


Why it is not at day time? There was that translation in another example


Sore is from late afternoon (say, from 15h) until evening (as long as there is sun and night has not fallen yet). So when the days are long, sore can be very late, our equivalent of evening)


Yes,can't beat a Bintang on the beach!


Sore - afternoon evening - malam


if it's still light out, it's considered Sore, once the sun goes down, it's Malam. Confusing because, in the US, we can say it's evening before the sun goes down. The kicker is that Duolingo uses Petang/Sore/Malam so interchangeably, it'll say "afternoon" and we get rejected for using Sore, because they were looking for Petang, and visa versa. I have two factories in Jakarta and I pass some of this stuff by the locals and they just go, "Huh?". I'm there about two months a year, have never heard anyone use Petang.


And nearly no one drink beer ...


Will be more realistic to drink es teh or kopi hitam
