"these patients have problems WITH walking" should be correct
It is now being accepted.(Problems with walking)
problemas para caminar = "walking problems"?
They marked me wrong for that.
Yes I gave the same answer and duo marked me wrong
Why is the word 'para' necessary in this sentence?
Spanish loves verbal phrases. If the verbs aren't together typically para is necessary
To KatrinaMac4: Thank you for your comment on this example of Spanish grammar.
"These patients have difficulties walking"?
Or "These patients have difficulty walking". Difficulties or difficulty should both be accepted.
"these patients have walking problems" was marked wrong:(
The suggestion for translation of para is misguiding for this exercise.
I know that this is an old thing, but I still have not learnt it. Why is "estos" used here? Could "estes" and "estas" be used as well (with more precision)?
Este is only used for singular items. Same with ese. Plural masculine go to Estos and esos. I'm not sure why, but that's the rule. Feminine still use esta and estas, esa and esas
So, the question is if "estes" or "estas" can be used in case we know that the patients are male or female.
No, estes is not a word in Spanish. It's este, estos, esta, estas
Ok, that is good to know! :) Then the only part of the question that remains is whether "estas" could be accepted if the patients were female.
Yup, absolutely! They just all have to be female
I thought that 'These patients have walking problems' would be fine. Apparently not.
or "trouble in walking". what is wrong with that??
Hola JAMESTOMLI2, Duo told me it should be"trouble walking".Chau.
Why do we use ESTOS (gender neutral) instead of ESTES (masculine)? Aren't patientes masculine?
The plural for este is estos and no estes. Estes is not s Spanish word
Does "tienen problemas que caminar" work? It seems that que is used a lot in Spanish with the verb tener to connect tener to an infinitive.
¿Por qué no Estos pacientes tienen problemas para caminando?
Looks like he was angry when he said Para caminar xD
