"Você foi à ópera?"

Translation:Have you ever been to the opera?

August 20, 2013



"Have you already been to the opera?" was wrong apparently. But if it is, then how would you say that?

August 20, 2013


that would be the same....

I should have reported it then. Let's hope somebody sees this discussion if in doubt :)

reporting doesn't seem to help but I will. I just posted my "hints versus accepted answers" rant a few minutes ago in another discussion. "already" is one of the hints for já, but not accepted. I'm on a campaign to try to get Duo to increase consistency but need everyone to post it until the wonderful but overworked people in the office take note.

Reported as well. Maybe if multiple people report it'll make 'em check.

Paulenrique, if I wanted to say: "Did you already go to the opera?" would it be different. That's what I wrote and got it wrong.

It is the same way!

If I were intending to convey "already", but someone mistook me as asking if they "have ever", is there something i can add to the sentence to clarify? Or maybe exaggerate some inflection in part of the sentence to help them understand which meaning I'm trying to say?

I think the only change is in intonation. For example, you use a more surpring intonation when you mean "Have you ever...?"

Right, so which word can I put more emphasis on? For example in English, I would say, "No I mean, have you EVER been...", or, "Sorry, I meant have you ALREADY been..." But I struggle in portuguese because it feels like putting exaggerated emphasis on "JÁ" is still ambiguous. So yes I understand the inflection when I say it the first time should hopefully convey the meaning, but what if I fail at that, and I want to clarify when I try to ask a second time? Kind of like, "Desculpe, não quis dizer já como 'hoje tão cedo' já, más quis dizer já como ____ já" The word I would put in the blank in English is "ever" but I'm not sure "...já como 'JÁ' já" will help or even make sense. Obrigado pela ajuda.

Have you already been... is the same

I wrote "did you already go to the opera," and it was marked wrong.

The audio sounds like "Você já foi da ópera?".
