"Estoy en la ciudad."
Translation:I am in the city.
I used town as well but it wasn't accepted. It is listed as a translation of ciudad though.
I'm having a hard time pronouncing ciudad... Do you pronounce the second "d" as how it's spelt or do you pronounce it as ciuda? Cause I don't find the DL pronunciation is very clear :/
When starting a word with D you pronounce it hard, like Domingo. But d's inside a word are pronounced as a "th" sound. Ustedes = ustethes. With ciudad, it depends from which country you are from, but usually that last d is barely heard (also sounding like "th").
If someone can help... Why does it have "estoy" as "I am" and not "soy"... Thanks
Would, "I live in the city" work? I didn't try it but I wonder if the translation is correct as well.
As if you didn't know, Spanish is not English. By that I mean it is supposed to be pronounced like that.
A Spanish 'c' is never pronounced like an English 'ch', rather an English 'th' in Castilian Spanish, or 's' in Latin America.
There was a choice of, I am on the town and, I am in thw city. Both work. :)
