This is a good explanation of the use of Sein instead of Haben .
No, not with 'are'. The verb 'go' requires 'have' in the past tense (present perfect if you prefer). So: 'We have gone already', with word order change. Or "We have left already left" might sound better in English. Not being a German speaker I am unsure as to whether this last option is very close translation of the original.
Ok hmm. On three different German songs or pages I have seen the verb laufen used to mean three things: laugh, run, and now walk. I feel it would be weird if something meant both running and walking lol can someone give me some clarity on this word? I looked it up but dictionaries often fail me
"We already walked" should be accepted, just like in every other example where the basic past tense is accept in English.
"already" generally establishes a connection between a past event that is relevant to the present -- we generally use the present perfect for this in (standard) English: "I have already brushed my teeth; have you already done your homework? She has left already" etc.
I'm really sorry, I can't wrap my head around this.
This translates word-by-word to "We are already have walked"
How many decades does it take for one to not immediately register the present tense in the head when one hears "Ich bin" or 'Wir sind", only to listen and process and change it?
the first meaning of laufen is run in German. in some regions the colloquial use of laufen also is also walk but it is not high German and it would not be accepted in written language. Therefore if Duo replaces run with walk for laufen it is definitely wrong by Duo... a mistake that needs to be corrected. It has been reported. the note is for people who are learning the language
It is funny when duo marks you wrong for something that is correct and Duo is straight wrong.... laufen in German is run and not walk....in some regions the colloquial language is to use laufen for walking but it is not High German. It is colloquial only for some regions
