"El hombre bebe agua."
Translation:The man drinks water.
Isolated it is beve but since it is in the middle of a sentence it is pronounced as veve (exception if the word of the previous sentence ends in n like un bebé)
martin- In Spanish, the sound V doesn' really exists, it's pronounced half-way between B and V.
Do you say hombre with the h sound or not? My spanish teacher does it with a little bit of H but I am not sure! Help!
No, the "h" is silent in Spanish, except for "ch" which is pronounced like the "ch" in "church."
With the accent it means baby without it means drink. The accent determines how its prenounced (where you place emphasis) hope that helps !
I drink-----yo bebo You drink (informal)-----tú bebes You drink (formal), it/she/he drinks-----él/ella/usted bebe We drink-------nosotros bebemos They drink--------ustedes beben
Does that answer it?
because they asked for "the man drinks water". Hombre=man . For he drinks water it would be El (accent mark over E) bebe agua = He drinks water
mhavay- With he, you don't know if it's a boy or a man. Also, you translate a noun with a noun, not a pronoun.
it should be drank water instead of drinks water becuase bebe is drink/drank and bebes is drinks......
brittany- No because bebe is he/she drinks, bebe is present not past. bebes isn't drinks, it's drink, you drink.
I am not sure, except that maybe because the word 'the' describing water wasn't there, they marked it wrong.
Does it count as incorrect if i said the man drnks water instead od the man drinks water???
I took the placement test for Spanish for fun and one question had the word Bebe in it so I looked it up and it said the English translation was baby?! Probably cause the line above one of the letters maybe.
I like to drink water = Me gusta beber agua. "Me gusta" is a structure you probably haven't had yet. It's a verb that works differently than yo bebo, yo como, etc.
No. If you are trying to say I like to drink water, it's 'me gusta beber agua' or 'a mí me gusta beber agua'. You said 'I like myself, it (or he or she) drinks water'. Haha
