It is completely normal English usage to say "I take coffee with milk" to mean the same as "I drink coffee with milk."
Sorry for not being clear. For liquids in general you use both beber or tomar. Gosto de beber/tomar suco (i like to drink juice). For medicine (pills, aspirins, antibiotics,..) use "tomar". Esqueci de tomar minhas pílulas (i forgot to take my pills)
I still don't get why "take" is not accepted! As someone that learnt spanish before, it's really annoying that tomar meaning to take is not accepted.
tomar only means "take" when you are talking about taking a bus, taking medicine, or taking a punch. But in this case it does not mean takes, it means "drinks".
I meant that in this context "tomar" can be translated to "take" because "take" means "drink".
Ditto. I put she has coffee with milk and it was marked wrong. Tomar surely can mean have with drinks and showers?
If this is the case, why did duolingo accept from me on an earlier one, "who takes coffee with sugar?" It's not just that she drinks coffee. She takes her coffee with milk. Yes?
Her pronunciation makes me smile every time. I hear her say "le-che" instead of "lei-tch" which is how I say it.
Hey uzeste! If the verb tomar is used before a beverage, it will probably only translate to "drink". Otherwise, it could mean "take". I hope it helps. =)
So it's like when it's something you take, for ex. I take medicines Is it tomar?
Listen very carefully. If she says it more like Eli, it is: Ele. If she says it more like Ele, it is: Ela.
It is gramatically correct to also say " Ill take my coffee with milk please. " or " She takes her coffee with milk. "
Really?I know "latte" as leite in Italian. Is that used in another region in Brazil? (maybe the South Region where there is an expressive influence from Italian). Also, i know latte (in usa) as coffee with a cream milk at the top, not a pure milk....
Why can't I say " Ela toma O cafe com leite"? Would that not just be "She drinks the coffee with milk"?
Is "coffee with milk" different than "coffee with cream"? Because I gave the latter as my answer and it was incorrect.
