why is not correct 'Ela gosta dessas botas'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

that should be correct!

Destas = these (near me) Dessas= those (near you). Daquelas = those (near she)

So, "ela gosta dessas botas" could be right, if you were speaking to someone that wears nice boots, but talking about someone else.

But don't worry, in everyday use people don't care about that detail level.

Really the pronunciation of botas was like bôtas? That's wrong!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GabrielYuji96

Indeed. The first syllable should be stressed, as if it was "bó-tas".
