"The parties are in February."
Translation:Las fiestas son en febrero.
Here is a case where the article is dropped before the month's name. Other times it is needed...
The multiple choice expected "vacaciones" as an acceptable translation for parties - seems wrong to me. I thought vacaciones was holidays or vacations.
lol i let my spanish college doing this excersise and he´s lost 3 hearts already ?? is he wrong or is duolingo wrong?
I started with Las fiestas son en febrero, then checked Google, which translated the phrase to Las partes están de febrero. I don't trust Google Translate that much, but still surprised that subject and verb would both be wrong. Still not sure which is right.
Thank you. I like reverse better. Also, if you have an iPhone, iPad, etc., "iTranslate" seems to be more accurate.
I put "en son" instead of "son en" because I thought that the last sentence that used this scenario used them this way, and it was marked wrong.
I'm naturally very good with languages, but this whole sentence order thing is driving me crazy! Can anyone explain it to me?
