although I agree with the standard answer, i wonder if the portuguese sentence can be also understood as "the season is long"? Like after a long long winter, we may say that the winter feels so long.
No.that is not the same. We would say: "a estação É LONGA". "FICA LONGE" is used for distance.
Criminy, this "ficar" is one flexible word!
So, why can it not also be:
- The station remains distant
- The station stays distant (far)
- The station grows distant
- The station continues to be distant
we do not know what kind of station it may be. train station, bus station, etc.
is FAR what ??? what ENGLISH speaking person would ever say that.... I'm doing DUOLINGO to learn Portuguese ....I ALREADY KNOW ENGLISH
I ALREADY KNOW PORTUGUESE and I am here learning English. What's (more) correct: The station is far/ far away/far from here/ distant?
In English, you'd probably prefer, "far away". 'distant' is a bit formal and perhaps more likely to be used figuratively: she sounded distant = cool, unconcerned.. But nobody would misunderstand you if you said, 'is the station far', or 'is it far from here'
