Why is not " the student makes a question" right?

Unfortunately, you can't actually "make" a question in English. You can ask a question or have a question. You can also question something or someone.

I said 'The student has a question' which was wrong. I think I see why. I guess the Portuguese of my answer would be O aluno tem uma pergunta.

I believe you should be able to say 'poses a question here.'

Could 'pupil' be used in place of 'student'?

July 26, 2013


Estudante is student, the one who studies. Treated like a profession.

Aluno is used for school or university students, those participating in a course.

Pupilo is used for individual students under a single master. (Like Daniel San under master Myagi)

Obrigada! I actually came to the comments section here to ask specifically about the difference between aluno and estudante. Have a lingot!

I said "The student has a question" and it was marked wrong? It's basically the same thing as "The students asks a question" right? Well I guess it's not exactly the same thing but now I have to restart because I hate losing hearts

i said the student asked a question and the answer was the student asks a question

asked would be fez

I think "asks" should be used since it is a sentence in Present Tense ;)

What is the difference between faz and pergunta?

February 6, 2014


faz is the verb, it means 'makes'; pergunta is the noun, meaning question. So in Pt they say 'make a question' instead of 'ask a question'

Thats what i wrote: 'makes a question' but it was marked wrong

    Fascinating that in Portuguese "fazer" is so versatile. Depending on how it's used, "faz" can be makes, takes, does, asks... neat!
