Translation:Today you are going to walk more than yesterday.
Oct 18, 2015 - The English 'you all' is more associated with the Spanish 2nd person plural, rather than the ustedes 3rd person plural. 'You all' is a lot less formal than ustedes. Duo is inconsistent regarding 'you all'. I've come to just use YOU for usted and ustedes, as well as for tu and vos, and let the verb make the distinction.
I think these usted/es forms come originally from the old custom of lowly ordinary people never being allowed to address aristocrats directly. "Would Her Majesty like to speak to His Majesty?" = usted. "Do their lordships wish to have a drink?" = ustedes. 'You all want to go fishing?' = vos forms, 2nd person plural, for friends and family, or children. Nowadays ustedes is for groups of strangers - "Good morning Kmart Shoppers! Look for the bargain rack on aisle 5!" or "You may now enter the theater for the dinner show."
Just to confuse things further, I am told that the VOS forms are used more in Mexico and points south than they are in Spain.
Maybe that helped. :-)
"Today you are going to walk more than you did yesterday" is not accepted. Why's that, despite the fact that it is grammatically and syntactically correct, moreso than the actual answer? I don't walk more today than yesterday, because yesterday didn't walk; I walked yesterday. So, it's "walk more than you did yesterday"
English is the only language I know that's so fussy about repeating the verb in a comparative statement.
- Last week we were feeding the bird more than (we were) yesterday.
- Last week we were feeding the bird more than they (were) / than them.
- Last week we were feeding the bird more than (we were feeding?) the cat.
I'm not quite sure how to feel about these sentences. They all seem okay, but not quite satisfying. I guess the verb wants to be restated especially when you're changing the tense because of the timeframe, hm.
- Last week we were feeding the bird more than (we will) next week.
In any case, you have a point and I'd agree that your answer should be accepted.
Why do you have to say all? If you're talking to a group it's implied.
