Why is this wrong:
Ils viennent d'arriver chez eux
I also just put that and it was marked wrong. I agree with you so I will be reporting this.
agreed. people don't generally say they're going to someone's place; they say they're going to someones house or home. this distinction Duo uses is ridiculous
What's wrong with "Elles viennent d'arriver chez elles"?
"Elles viennent juste d'arriver chez elles." is accepted (29 décembre 2020).
tried it august 2020 and it failed
Accepted in January '21 :)
I agree with below - chez eux = home. Does ANYONE say "my place, or is Duo only really for the US market where I have heard it used!
As an American, we mostly say "home" too. We wouldn't even use the "at."
I've just posted another re same point. The answer, Duo says, should be "at the house"! Whose house?
I appreciate finding a translation that covers all usages is near impossible, but ................!
Why is it "Elles", and why is it "à la maison" when they didn't say "at the house? "Chez eux" should be accepted.
if the "they" is elles (as it is in this challenge), then i think it has to be "chez elles" not "chez eux" but that didn't work
Ils viennent d'arriver chez eux marked wrong-------puzzled
Elles viennent d'arriver à la maison would be: they have just arrived at the house. In 158 days of practice I have not seen à la maison being used as 'at home'.
Pippa - while living in France, I heard it regularly in that context.
Ils viennent d’arriver chez eux...not accepted. At home...at their place...whats the diff
In future lessons, Duolingo always uses "chez __" for "home", so it's ridiculous that they didn't accept that for this answer.
Really! This means that ALL the individuals were female. If there was at least one male present the correct default is "Ils"
Ils ont juste arrive chez eux . Ils ont arrive= they have arrived Juste=just chez eux -their place
i also today tried "chez elles " & "chez eux." Both were rejected
Why is "Ils/elles viennent de rentrer" not accepted? I thought rentrer also meant come home/return home/arrive at home.
Why isn't it past tense?
