What is this, scooby doo? lol

Why was ‘ I will eat’ not correct?

I would suppose that they've reserved that translation for ithidh mi.

Would it also be correct to say 'I eat a sandwich and then I eat another sandwich', like 'I play shinty and then I sleep' (or some such) in the previous set of exercises?

Just wondering... why isn't "I will eat" not the equivalent of "I will be eating"?

Was it just me or were all the tiles already placed for me?

I'm also wondering about the use of 'uairsin' as opposed to 'ma tha' for then?

What does uairsin mean? Don't remember seeing that word before. Is it "then"?

How can one make the difference between "I will be eating a sandwich .." and "I eat a sandwich..."? Tapadh leat

The answer "I will eat a sandwich and then I will eat another sandwich" is marked wrong.
