So "suidhe" is "sitting down"? I would have thought you needed to add "sios."

my thoughts exactly!

I was just about to ask that.

Would you never say 'Bidh i a' suidhe sìos...' then? If you can say this, then this shouldn't be marked wrong. If you would never say this, then fair enough it's wrong (if a little unfair on learners).

I got this exact thing wrong too when I added sios


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jill332471

Yep, me too. Added sios lost a mark. Which is correct please?

This is unfair. You have just taught us suide and sios but now you tell us not to use sios. How are we supposed to know?

I did the same and added sios.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jen942985

Yep, I entered a' suidhe sìos and it was marked wrong, the hints are misleadong if that isn't what you would say or translate from that english.

Should also accept "ise" as well as "i"

The sentence to be translated should omit the word 'down' then if you don't want to use the word sios (can't put the accent on the i from here). When I hovered my mouse over the sentence t check it before hitting the green check button, it showed using the word for down. Therefore, I feel my answer should be accepted.
