"What time should we work out?"
Translation:E hoʻoikaika kino kākou i ka hola ʻehia?
Okay, sorry for misunderstanding. And for answering here instead of on your last reply, but the reply option is missing on that one....
It was a type in your answer one, but I used the word bank instead of trying to guess what vocab words they wanted used. I have some knowledge of the language already so I find it frustrating at times trying to "mindread" and using the word bank helps with that.
The Word Bank is the collection of tiles offered to you when doing a tile exercise.
It sounds like you are referring to the Hints, the possible translations that are offered when hovering over (or clicking on, depending on your platform) a word in the exercise. The Hints are not tied to the particular exercise, but rather chosen by the software based on usage throughout the course.
If you are having trouble with something, I suggest cooking to these sentence discussions and asking here.
After reaching a certain level of replies, the reply option goes away. You can also just reply to the last level that has a reply.
In any case, are you saying the word bank offered you kāua, but then told you it was wrong and didn't have the little flag icon to be able to report it? By any chance did you get a screen cap that you can link to here?
Question: "Word bank" - is that the little drop-down menu (that I've been using to verify some differences where there are several options) you get by selecting the word or phrase in what we're supposed to translate, or is there another place I can look to verify a choice (e.g. "hele i ke kula" = Go to school? Come to school?) I need to find a place to help me determine which of two or more options the program wants - because it's not always the version that comes naturally to my English-speaking head.
I don't mean the exercise referred to in the sentence. I mean what kind of exercise did Duolingo give you to practice this sentence. Usually the ones that allow you to write in other options should also give you a chance to report that your answer should have been accepted. I'm trying to see if I can figure out why it didn't. So I'm wondering what kind of Duolingo exercise it was so I can see if I can find out what went wrong.
Itʻs all a bit hazy at this point, Iʻm sorry. I didnʻt take a screen cap and I was more venting my spleen than truly filing a complaint, too. But I appreciate you looking into it. I think that kāua and kākou were options. Iʻve been using the word bank a lot lately but itʻs also very possible that my memory is wrong and I opted to type in the answer on my own with this question, too.
If you are using a defined word bank, always be certain that ALL of the necessary words have been included and that they are in the proper order. Word-bank problems will not give a response of incorrect if the words and their order are chosen correctly.
For example, in this exercise, if you neglected to use the command form E, then you will get a response of "incorrect" even though all of the other words are in the correct order.
Also, many words look the same at a glance, but under close observation, you will find that one is different from the other. So choose wisely.
When you gain experience, turn off the word bank and use only the keyboard whenever possible.
e + verb: future tense/mood (e hana au "I will work"); or, infinitive (e hana "to work"); or, imperative mood (e hana ʻoe "Work thou!")
"Work out" is an infinitive, so there is an "e" before the verb.
In a french translation of your sentence, it's easier to understand because we can see in "À quelle heure le professeur va-t-il à l'école?" that the verb go is conjugated, so it's not an infinitive, so no "e". In english it's a bit harder, I'm not sure, but I think that go is not an inifinitive too because of the "does". So go isn't an infinitive, no "E" before "hele".
