We did not allow our children to go alone should be accepted since dejamos is the same in the present and preterite tenses. I reported it.
yup, a bunch of ar verbs are like this.
yes, but they don´t
Why there is no "los" before dejamos"? Is it because there is direct description of the subject? I mean "our children" rather then just "them".
It sounds like "solos" is an adverb. Wouldn't it remain "solo" as an adverb?
Marked wrong for writing ' we do not allow our children to go out on their own ' The Duolingo designated answer was the clumsy one shown above. I like my English better than theirs !!
There's "ir" not 'salir' in this phrase.
Your answer was wrong, clumsiness of DUO suggested answer notwithstanding.
But you were right to include 'to' in your translation.
Marked wrong for:
We do not let our children to go alone.

This sentence sounds awkward and is not natural.
"We don't allow our children to go" is good English, but "We don't let our children go" should not contain the to. (allow them to go; let them go)
"We don't allow our children to go by themselves" - Accepted
Still waiting for Duo to accept, "go alone"
"We don't allow our sons to go alone" was accepted 8 Aug. 2019
Dejar means to stop as well as to allow.
So why is this wrong: "We don't stop our children from going by themselves."
"We don't let our children go on their own."
How do these sentences differ?
I wrote "No los dejamos a nuestros hijos ir solos" which was also accepted, but I'm wondering why it's also good without 'los'?
Is this the personal 'a'?
"We don't allow our sons to go out alone." I was marked wrong for this. Can someone explain?
ir = to go. salir = to go out.
I wrote " we don't let our children go out on their own" and it was marked wrong. Don't is a contraction of Do Not and in English they both mean the exact same thing. Why was it marked wrong?
Ir = go; salir = go out
we know that ir is to go and salir is to go out, therefore why is to go out given as one of the drop-down options???!!!
why isn't ( go out ) alone accepted?
Por que no se dice "nuestros hijos vayan solos" si es plural?
"No dejamos a nuestros niños ir solo" should be accepted. Repirted 12/10/2020
