this is insane. I don't know in which country someone might syathis, but in the UK we say: "Where are we going on Wednesday?" "Going to go" - weird!
Perhaps one place where you might hear someone say "where are we going to go.." is when the decision has not yet been taken and the speaker is trying get some discussion/agreement on where they want to go, whereas "where are we going..." can also be used when someone has already made the decision and the speaker is trying to find out what it is.
in Canada that's also the correct phrase: "where are we going on Wednesday?" the going implies the 'to go'.
Me too. Occasionally they don't seem to speak English. Or should I say 'on some occasion they seem not English to use for giving of the answers...'
The normal, non-emphatic, "Where shall we go . . ." is marked wrong, in favour of "Where will we go . . .?" Now who uses the emphatic form in a question?
I've always understood that in a an unemphatic future grammatically it is "I and we shall".
'where are we going on Wednesday ' must be acceptable too, as an actual time in the future is specified
"Where shall we go ..." was deemed incorrect; the program does not recognize I/we shall from I/we will ....
DL should be able to accept a range of answers that are commonly used in English. Has anyone tried (just for a laugh) "Whither shall we go on Wednesday?"? This is perfectly correct even if it is archaic.
Also, the program does not recognize the use of the Italian present when a near future sense is intended. If it were Monday, one might say "Dove andiamo mercoledì?" intending two days "hence."
Since I'm also doing to French lessons, it occurred to me that "going to go" might be based on some residual French version of "Je vais aller ..." in the U.S., just as "I'm going by your house" in the Midwest seems to be leftover German "bei ... Hause."
Where shall we go is correct English, although marked wrong by Duo! Reported.
Sometimes it's really amazing what's considered to be wrong on duolingo. It's just not possible in all the translations to take it so "literally" For example, in the exercise to make the right combinations you have to choose "light" for "accendere" OMG!!
