How come this sentence is in the "Clothing" section?)
comprare is to buy, so they're just introducing the verb in the clothing section because you buy clothes :)
True, I didn't know we could wear bottles or people just casually drank bottles (inferred to be alcohol) while strolling around Target.
it's about the verb comprare
Clearly, they mean Duffman :)
Because, I find, a bottle goes with any outfit.
that`s what i thought.
we bought a bottle? wrong??
Sadly so, "bought" is past tense. "We buy..................."
what about we "purchase" a bottle?
Buy (present tense) not bought (past tense)
I agree with you... that's a right answer too
"Purchase" ... "buy" ... Is there some fine distinction there that I'm not catching, I wonder.
The fast version says "la bottiglia", the slow "una bottiglia". Which one are we supposed to answer?
Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one that has these problems. I always feel like I must be going mad because I'm certain that she said "la" and it corrects me to "una."
Let's be clear. It's Duolingo that wrong, there's nothing wrong with your hearing The audio on the slow version is different, DL quite often makes mistakes like this.
Ok compriamo also has the meaning "we purchase" but since I used that instead of we buy, it was marked wrong.
I got the same.
The same was for me.
Compriamo is in the past or present?
What does this have to do with clothing???
It's always a good idea to read the other questions before posting. You would have gotten your answer right away (and also not wasted DL's bandwidth).
what has this got to do with clothing?
Unless I wear bottles, this sentence is silly.
El sonodo de la r no se escucha...la grabacion dice noi compiamos...en lugar de compriamo
It is a poor sentence for clothing. I've never bought a bottle in my life unless it contained something.
Why doesn't Duo Lingo fix it.
Turn up!! Always a good time to buy a bottle, especially when shopping :)
Why is not bought a correct translation?
Bought is past tense, Compriamo is present
Sounds like a mighty fine idea to me
