"Yo he caminado todos los días a tu casa."
Translation:I have walked every day to your house.
Somebody else agrees that I could answer ''i have been walking everyday to your house"?
The meanings are similar, but DL usually prefers a tense for tense translation.
I have walked - he caminado (Present Perfect Tense)
I have been walking - he estado caminado (Present Perfect Progressive Tense)
This link discusses the difference between the two tenses:
Not sure, but that doesn't look right in English. Every day has to be two words, unless it's an adjective. e.g. "an activity I do every day" vs. "an everyday activity"
It is not precisely the same gramatical value. I think it is important to see tuese subtle things.
one answer as above:todos los dias.... all days and:cada dia every day,I think
Perhaps the Spanish possibilities are valid, but as a native English speaker I would not say "I have walked all days to your house".
My preferred translations are "I have walked to your house every day" or "Every day I have walked to your house". To me it feels a bit out of place to put "every day" in the middle as Duolingo suggests.
I have walked alle the days to your home/house.
Does anybody know, why this is marked wrong? .___.
Generally, DL prefers awkward literal translations.
However, some idiomatic translations are so common that it would not be proper to ignore them.
DL has been consistent with "todos los días" translating to "every day".
What is the difference between "Yo caminaba todos los dias a tu casa" and "Yo he caminado todos los dias a tu casa"
yo caminaba is imperfect indicative, and means that I walked in the past for some ongoing time. (Started and ended in the past but continued for a long while.) It's translated as "I used to walk", "I was walking", or simply "I walked".
yo he caminado is present perfect indicative, and means only "I have walked".
Yeah, but how does the perfect tense connect itself with "todos los dias"? I'd rather use imperfect tense in this case.
We use the present perfect when the action is still ongoing or may happen again soon. (The imperfect actions have definitely stopped.) How about, "I have walked to your house every day, and I think it's your turn to walk to mine." OR "I have walked to your house every day, watered your plants, and fed your fish. I hope you are enjoying your vacation!"
So, the emphasis in perfect tense is not on the action in the past, rather on the very presence of such action. I believe now I've got it. Thanks for explanation!
The correct answer "caminado" was not a choice to choose. It was obviously a last choice that doesn't come up on the screen! There is a glitch here!
I'm stuck on a catch 22 here! The correct answer is not able to come up and I'm continually dinged wrong and can't end this session! It's affecting my score GREATLY! Please fix this!!!!
There may be a glitch here. Caminado was not one of my options. This was a multiple choice question, but I could not see #5 or #6 options, and there was no way to scroll down.
caminado is the correct answer but is not available to select on my program????
there are supposed to be 10 possible choices but the correct one does not appear . only 8 of the 10 are visible
Just notice that there is scroll bar to allow one to select #11 which is "camicnado". It was not that obvious unfortunately.
no option offered for the right answer - caminado does not appear in the choices
How can I select the right answer when the right answer does not appear on the screen. It shows 1-4 and 6-10 and none of them are the 'caminado'. DuoLingo, please fix this, as completing this exercise is impossible.
There is no option for' caminado' in the choices so it is impossible to answer correctly - very frustrating
I would be inclined to say "I have walked to your house every day." Would it be acceptable Spanish to say, " Yo he caminado a tu casa todos los dias."
There is a technical mistake in this question. The right answer is not one of the choices.
'caminado' . is not available as one of the options so there is no possibility of getting it right
The word "Caminado" does not appear as a choice in the multiple choice question. I cannot progress without answering this question.
the correct answer is not offered and i cannot get off this level... can someone alert duolingo. i reported it two days ago.
The correct answer is not among the choices and the question without the correct answer keeps being repeated.
