Once upon a time, two bugs from Brazil were walking across a seemingly endless sandwich. They were tired and despairing that they would never make. Suddenly one bug said to the other, "Eu vejo a ponta do sanduíche!"

So I don't get frustrated with the often bizarre sentences here, I have started to make equally bizarre stories to justify their use. ;-)

Seems like you alone got the point of the bizarre sentences. They are supposed to give pause enough that you should remember

why is "i see the tip of the sandwich" wrong

I thought the correct answer would be this one!

That would only apply if it contains iceberg lettuce.

I actually didn't know the answer. I put "corners". But I would say that "edges" is the best fit. There isn't really a tip of a sandwich. It may end somewhere, but I think it would end at its edges.

I have the same question! I wrote "I see the tip of the sandwich" and I got it wrong

I guess a "tip" is more of an elevated point like a summit, peak, head or top: the tip of the mountain. It is pointed and acute.

I'm in agreement with the folks saying that this sentence makes no sense in English.

Can't use end for ponta? I see the end of the sandwich

I usually don't have problems with the audio bu this sounds like "conta" to me in both the regular and slow speeds.

I see the bill for the sandwich.

In what context would someone use this sentence? When they are close to finishing their meal?

It's nonsense sentence in English.
