Why is it wrong to put" the"????
deg16- because in English you don't need the article unless you say : the month of march. Same in French, we don't use the article when we enumerate the months
why did it say i was wrong when i did not cap February, but it said that it was ok to uncap march?
if that makes sense [if it does not make sense let me know]
I'm guessing it didn't notice the difference because march is also a verb that doesn't need caps, whereas Feb is only a proper noun in English, but that is just a guess.
In Spanish, you write the months of the year without the capital letter. Febrero is with the capital letter because it is at the beginning of the sentence (i'm sorry for my English).
pink- If it's like you say report it. We have to capitalize both.
ok thank you! I most certainly will.
yeah I don't understand the whole typo non caps do cap thing.............. but then again it is just duo.
Now its wrong to not put "the" :(
It all depends where you're putting it. You need one before "year", but putting one before "months" (or anywhere else) would be wrong.
reawhide- In French, Spanish and English, we never say THE before the name of the month. We say, January, February,/enero, febrero /janvier février, but the month of January /el mes de enero /le mois de janvier.
Yeah it does things like that.
It is referring to two months not one. The sentence read February and March ........
Yes i got the same to i was very curious about it but until i found out that "the" is not said in some foriegn countrys "the" is only used when its necessary
Are months of the year typically capitalized in Spanish?
No. You do not need capitalize neither the days of the weeks northe month. Only when they are part of a special date. Like Viernes Santo, los fusilamientos del 2 de Mayo.
Omfg... everytime I write this one.. I write Mars because that's how we spell it in Swedish. I just never remember "march".
this was a good practice for people who don't listen to thier teachers in class or even read what they are doing before they write something down
At first I didn't see the tilde...'nuff said :p
how come it says that I was almost corect
And what about "year's months" ? Is it correct?
Why is is 'del ano' and sometimes ' de la ...'
jenniferks20- Do not forget the accent to write aÑo, because el ano is a part of your anatomy that you keep private. lol
Definitely worth bearing in mind if you ever need to ask someone their age.
yes! Because otherwise you are literally asking someone how many anuses they have.
Ano means anus and año year ;)
ano is masculine. so it uses "el" and "de" + "el" = "del". You might be thinking of "de la semana". "semana" is feminine so it uses "la".
Ps its cuved line makes it sond like an-yo
It sounded like the voice person thing said de not del
Why it needs to put "the" before year?
Ans:February and March are months of the year.
bernard, when you name a month, there is no article. Year is a commun name, it needs an article.
I wrote the sme thing Febrero y marzo son meses del ano
i wrote frebuary as a typo, the grading machine is stupid
Why is it stupid to expect "February" to be spelled F-e-b-r-u-a-r-y? Sounds reasonable to me.
I agree with penguinlearn2fly - the aim here is to learn Spanish, not the English spelling.
Are the an and a articles
A and An are indefinite articles in English, if that was your question.
The Spanish letter n, (It's apart of Spanish's alphabet), n=(nn)y. For example, ano=a(nn)yO. Nina=nE(nn)ya. And nino=nE(nn)yO. That's what the "n" is all about!
I said "February and March are months IN the year" and not "... OF the year." Why is that wrong, is it something with grammar. Like in would be "en" and because it is "del" it is of?
Yes, exactly. Del- of the
Thanks :) I"m French too so I'm a bit confused. But its french its "de l'année" not "dans l'année"... okay yeah that makes sense lol
i did what it said
Are isnt one of the selections
'The' was not in the list of words
I think duo made a typo
My answer is correct
Mines was already there so all i had to do was click check
The word "are" wasnt one of the words listed as an answer
I cannot spell february
now u can
I was RIGHT! Duolingo STOLE Points from ME!!! I am SUEING!
Does 'del' literally mean 'of the' or just of?
De means of (here) and el means the. De+el= del =of the
ok thank you (^_^)v
Thanks duolingo, for teaching me another sentence that I will never use in conversation...
There was no "are" in options, but it's needed.
Why is it wrong to put "the"
So are December, January, April, May, June,July, August, September, October, and November.
Tu necisita una rayita y leche
I would say "in" the year, they want "of" the year. "In" is better English, but they mark is as wrong (not even almost correct).
"Months of the year" seems much more natural to me (and is a better translation of "meses del año"), but I guess it's possible that "months in the year" is more common in some Englishes.
My brothers b-day is January
Finally a sentence that makes sense
I wrote that and it did not accept it!
Please make '&' correct for the word 'and'. Otherwise it's dumb.
I do spell Ferbuary but its wrong
You have to say February and March are months of the year that does not make any sense
❤❤❤❤ i kept on putting mars instead of march and getting it wrong.
I did not get that wrong
when did Duolingo turn into kindergarden
