"Ellos son nuestros socios."

Translation:They are our partners.

I'm trying to learn Spanish for my job, and this is the first sentence that I might actually have the opportunity to use. Not that I haven't been thrilled about my new ability to describe several elephants eating a strawberry, but this is exciting!

I agree not enjoyed this section.. to be honest i think more explanation is needed when things get more complex..

January 10, 2013


This section (People) has so many mistakes....

January 3, 2013


Socios also means members, i.e. of a club or organization.

Why does it give other definitions yet only accept "partners" as correct?

February 7, 2013


It accepted "associate" just now.

It's difficult to make a judgement when you use a word that has not been taught.

December 21, 2013


I agree,a listing of new words at the beginning of a section would be a help

April 8, 2014


I agree, I don't like the "people" section at all. I hope the next sections get better

January 5, 2013


Why do they give me words I don't yet know? Shouldn't I be learning new words, and then tested for phrases???

February 5, 2014


By the way, 'socio' can be either feminine or masculine.

Thnx muchas gracias

April 20, 2014


Could "socios" also be "colleagues"?

June 22, 2013


Esto es mi pregunta tambiƩn.

August 2, 2013


you can be colleagues at work but not necessarily, associates in the company.

Plse. whats the difference between nosotro and nosotros, is it our and ours? or is nosotros used when there is more than one item that belong to nosotro?

September 14, 2013


nosotro and vosotro doesn't exist. nosotros /nosotras= we vosotros/vosotras= you, plural nuestro/nuestra= our vuestro/vuestra= your nuestros/nuestras= our, plural vuestros/vuestras= your, plural

October 27, 2013


thx for pointing this out

October 30, 2013


Could you expand on this a little bit

April 20, 2014


ilovebrooks- nosotros / vosotros is a subject pronoun normally : nosotros somos amigos / we are friends. vosotros son estudiantes / you are students. we walk with our children / nosotros andemos con nuestros hijos., or with vuestros hijos / your children. So, nosotros /vosotros, nosotras, vosotras go with a verb. nuestros, nuestras, nuestro, nuestra go with a noun, an object. Am I clear?

I think that "socios" should also mean friends.Why do Spanish people confine themselves to strict interpretations of the words.

December 27, 2013


1/27/2014 @LiamODonov That has not been my experience with Spanish using Duolingo. Just when I think I have a word pinned down, I find that it has another meaning. If the hover definition is available I use it as quite often the word doesn't mean what it looks like it means in English. I realize sometimes we are introduced to it as a multiple choice and have to make our best guess as to a definition.

January 27, 2014


I guess that I was thinking in terms of the English word "sociable" which would mean friendly. So many Spanish and English words are very similar and I assumed that the Spanish word "socios" would have a wide interpretation.

January 27, 2014


Sometimes they are misleading. When I see "socios" I think sociopath. Tonight I saw "iguales" and typed "equals"; however, that's not one of the hover definitions. The translation was "You and I are the same".

January 28, 2014


Isn't that really saying the same thing and therefore correct

April 20, 2014


@ilovebrooks If that answer was accepted that's good. I usually lose a heart if I use a word not found in the hover definitions. Mostly I don't mind, but if I'm trying to secure my streak I'm risk averse.

April 20, 2014


i do not like this because instead of a a sound its an s sound

November 8, 2013


Could "socios" also mean "society"?

November 22, 2013


society = sociedad

November 23, 2013


Gracias! :D

November 24, 2013


If the sentence was, "Ellas son nuestras ..." Would the last word change to socias?

January 4, 2014


FLchick- yes, socias.

January 4, 2014


@mitaine56 Thank you. Sorry it took me this long to write you.

January 27, 2014


I saw what it meant by clicking the word and assumed I could use friend also. Wrong! Oh well, I'm learning

March 10, 2014


There was no link to translate socio. We shouldn't be tested on words we have not already been taught!

March 24, 2014


Get in the van or my associates will MAKE you.

April 10, 2014


I don't see why not but I am certainly not an expert

April 20, 2014


Members wasn't a vocabulary word we learned yet

April 26, 2014


Why can't the Spanish be more flexible with their language like the Brits? If you are trading with people and you get caught up with minor word interpretations then your business might suffer.Why can't the language schools introduce and accept a wider range of answers for words like partners?
