Even though the mouseover offers seasons as a solution, Duo won't accept it.

Happened to me too...

Anyone know if tiempio can also mean weather? I thought tiempo can be used for time or weather oddly enough.

yes, tiempo can also mean weather

Why won't this accept seasons?

Waht is the distinction between, "Los tiempos" and "Los veces"

Tiempo means "time" as in the passage of time etc. Veces is "time" as in öccurrence," like, the first time it ever happened, or I've tried it three times.

frequently I see the term 'en estos tiempos' to mean "in that time period", or 'in those days'.

I remembered tiempo as weather

One of the meanings listed under the word "tiempo" is "season," yet "season" was counted incorrect in my English translation.

I think this is tricky because the use of "tiempo" seems to be dependent upon context. "Seasons" could also be used to describe a certain space of time, such as "her season of life" but I think for the sake of this lesson, they are looking for an understanding of "tiempo" in the context of a reference to time in the more literal sense of the word, as in "what time is it?"

I can understand if used in a context but it just said "Los tiempos", no image was used to describe it either....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLnxDqFZlb

Seasons should be accepted :/

I absolurtely agree, the times and the seasons can be used in thte same context anyway
