Why isn't door possible instead of gate?
door = porta
Did anyone hear "Eles" instead of "Elas"? Or am I just unable to distinguish between the two still?
"Elas" is ok here.....
But it's hard for starters:
Ele sounds like Aylee
Ela sounds like Ellah (open E, like in "bell")
There is an entire discussion about it here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/161301
If it were the gate of an airport, I believe that it should be "porta", at least here in Portugal.
