Agreed, "She goes to the school" should be accepted! We just learned that à is a combination of "to + the"...right??
So considering that duolingo so nicely explained to me that a (to) + a (the) = à (to the), how come I got "She goes to the school" wrong?
Sad... both of them should be accepted...
Besides the technical aspect of whether "to the school" should be accepted, what does this sentence mean to native speakers? Does it mean she attends school in general, or that she's going to a specific school building?
It means both. It will depend on the context
Fast audio is terrible - totally lost "à"
i got it right here" she goes to the school"... can somebdy help me by telling when to use ao and à ?
thanks in advance
À, ao = to the. À (for feminine words: ela vai à escola), ao (for masculine words: ela vai ao banco)
