I put " you want dinner?" is this not the same thing as "Do you want dinner?"
In casual speech, you want dinner? or even dinner? as a question is OK. I hear similar constructions all the time. Using the more formal form is usually better for these lessons, however.
That would be correct if that was a statement. "you want dinner, he wants dinner, etc.". If you want to ask someone if they want dinner, or anything else, use "do". Always try your best to use grammatically correct sentences :).
I think that "would you like dinner?" should also be acceptable but it was marked incorrect
The slowed down version doesn't work. Only the first word of the sentence can be heard.
I thought that "Do you all want your dinner?" would work. How come it doesn't?
This is cool because I'm improving my English as well :) I wrote "Do you want a dinner?" which is wrong :(
It is wrong because "To have dinner" is an idiom. There are situations where you can use "a dinner", for example: "We have a dinner every year on the occasion of...".
If I am ordering at a restaurant, is it acceptable to say "Ik wil ... ... alstublieft"?
i put you guys want dinner? and it said false it corrected to do you guys want dinner?
Duolingo tends to disregard punctuation, and tends to favor the standard over informal. In everyday conversation with tone of voice to provide context, "You guys want dinner?" is perfectly fine. But Duolingo is a computer program and can't really tell the difference between that as a question and that as a statement.
