Is this translation accurate? I'd translate the German more like "That becomes your own room after all," or make the German "Das wird doch dein eigenes Zimmer sein." What am I missing?

In German the 'sein' in your sentence above is kind of redundant as 'wird' takes the place of 'will be' in the equivalent English sentence.

Similar example: "It will get better." = "Es wird besser." NOT "Es wird besser werden."

then how can I distinguish between future tense and present tense of 'becoming'? is there any distinction for that in grammar structure? thanks for help in advance!

That's exactly what I put, to be honest I feel it should be accepted (I'm German). Hopefully Duolingo will sort it out.

I think you are right, it should be "Das wird doch deine eigenes Zimmer sein!".

I translated the English sentence word for word the same except I used "denn" in place of 'doch'. Is that still an accurate translation?

'Schliesslich wird das dein eigener Raum sein.' should be accepted, as well. While I agree that the best translation is 'Zimmer', 'Room' can also be translated as 'Raum'

to use the formal you, would one say "Das wird doch Ihre eigenes Zimmer"?
