"The turtles are in the garden."
Translation:Las tortugas están en el jardín.
getting confused with these verbs :'(
It COULD be son, though, if for example the turtles lived in the garden and never left. I understand why Duolingo decided that "están" is more appropriate than "son", and it's because if you don't know for certain, then you should probably use the infinitive version of the verb.
Same question but the teacher is right :( .
You are humans=Ustedes son humanos. You are in the house=Ustedes están en la casa. www.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_difference_between_son_and_estan_in_spanish
