This isn't good English. She goes to lunch or she goes to the luncheon, if it's a specific event.
I answered "she attends lunch" and was told I was wrong, that it needed to be "the lunch". But my translation is correct English.
What is the difference between ao and a
? Is ao masculine and a for feminine?
Yes. À = a + a, ao = a + o. The verb ir requires the preposition "a". Ele vai a a padaria = ele vai à padaria. Ela vai a o banco = ela vai ao banco
thank you very much for the explanation , how can we learn for ex that : verb IR needs A and another verb needs o ? or should we learn that by time ?
Yes... over time you'll learn what preposition i used after a verb and when it becomes necessary. That is a little thing and people wont be too annoyed if you cant use them pretty well at first. After all, there are other points which require more concentration and dedication.... leave this as a future subjective. Up to that time, learn some of them through your lessons ;)
Is it supposed to be a "luncheon" or the actual food for her lunch?
It can work as she attends the luncheon ( if it's a specific event). If not, she goes to lunch is the natural translation.
I think this one means she goes to a specific event, like a planned business lunch. Demanding an article can be legit in that case. But it's still a terrible sentence because naturally everyone would assume she just goes to a regular lunch. That, then, will be "to lunch" or "for lunch".
She goes to lunch " marked wrong and then given as the correct answer. :( 2018 05 24
It was marked incorrect for me two days later. They changed their minds
