palestra can mean gymnasium, no? Gymnasium was marked incorrect here.
Odd, since that's one of the hints. Furthermore, 'gym' is simply an abbreviated form of 'gymnasium'.

I sense I'm going to be using this sentence a lot.
Come on! The Larousse dictionary translates "palestra as "gymnasium. You are making me do unneeded extra work.
Why not "...in the gym"? "In" is given as a hover hint.
That should absolutely be ok. Your answer means the same thing.
I reported it.
So why can't we say "in gym"?
cseverin...You can use the preposition 'in' as well as 'at' but you need to include the definite article "the". Otherwise it's incorrect.

"in' vs. "a" -- in palestra (in the gym) vs. a palestra (at the gym). Is this correct?
If you were to us a it would be "a la palestra"
Gym is often used for "gym class."
can anyone tell me why it's 'in palestra' as oppose to 'a palestra'. Thank you!
Aoife...I believe it's because you're expressing location, not movement towards a location. With some exceptions (a casa), 'a' indicates motion towards.
Is there a difference between gymnasium and gym. It seems so, gymnasium isn't in DL's vocabulary.
