It sounded as if she was saying "pasos". I know that didn't make much sense, "I don't have many steps".
You are right, the fast and slow versions are very different. She DEFINITELY says "patos" in the slow version. I lose more hearts because of the poor pronunciation than for any other reason.
I think it's because she said "basos" which sounded like patos or pasos. I hear my Spanish teacher pronounce v's in Spanish with the "b" sound all the time.
Rude duo, i put i have many glasses and it said it was wrong i was still close.:-(
Sound that to me but for some reason I clicked the faster and it sounded different so I got it right this time.
I wrote - I haven't many glasses. this was marked wrong. Why, Do not have - and Haven't - they both mean the same thing
I haven't GOT = I don't have
"I haven't glasses" = INCORRECT
"I (do) have glasses" or "I don't have glasses" = CORRECT
"I have got glasses" or "I haven't got glasses" = CORRECT
they correct "I haven't glasses" with "I have not glasses"... it seems to me that this two sentences have the same grammar, isn't it?
Yes, they are the same as in "I have not" and "I haven't", but both incorrect.
You can only negate "have" without using "do" when it's used as an auxiliary, e.g. "I haven't seen him." When "have" is the main verb of the sentence, indicating possessions, it has to be negated with "do" like any other main verb.
TO ALL THOSE OF YOU WHO GIVE WILLBYZX A "RASHING": WOW!!!- I AM BORN AND RAISED AMERICAN,BUT I MUST BE TOO " ENGLISH" BY INFLUENCE . . . I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN THAT "I HAVEN'T MANY GLASSES." WOULD BE A WAY TO GIVE A LITTLE A ENGLISH (U.K.) TWIST TO MY SPEECH. I'VE LIVED IN MANY STATES, BUT FOLK USUALLY TAKE ME FOR A NORTHERNER. WHERE HAVE Y'ALL BEEN??????????????? L.O.L.
What is wrong with I don't have lots of glasses? Apparently Duolingo says it is wrong.
But i thought eye glasses. That would be lentes or anteojos or gafas, right?
If you can count them, you should use many instead of much. "I don't have much water. I don't have many buckets."
Duo is so ANOYING and just because of poor pronunciation I've gotten so many things wrong
I made a mistake and wrote "I don't have many cups" and it said it was correct! I thought taza was a cup and vaso is a glass.
I put I dont have very many glasses and they said it was wrong. I think that is stupid
By glasses does it mean lile glass for water (a cup made of glass) or optical glasses?
Someone says to the other: "could I borrow a glass for some water?" Me: "NO TENGO MUCHOS VASOS".
Why not, !i haven't many glasses." I think the alleged answer with "I haven't GOT many glasses!" is over the top.
There was a glitch in the multiple choice answer. For reasons unknown, both cups and glasses were considered to be correct translations of vasos. Hope this has been remedied.
Oh... then you can report it to Duolingo. If you see it again or through the "Support" button on the left.
zaaffraan- no those hints are not all correct answers, you have to choose the correct one.
you can say "I have few glasses". more economical will try on review. Transition between idioms tricky long as we get it ok loads of help here but it is disappointing losing lingots so close!
glasses in English means "eye glasses", the plural form for glass should still be "glass", that's why I put" I do not have many glass. " and I think it should be correct.
Sorry QFW1 but the plural of "glass" is "glasses". In England we never refer to spectacles as "eye glasses", I think that is an American name.
Drinking glasses is what is being discussed here not quantities of the material glass. You probably have glasses in your cabinets/pantry right now. (near the cups and mugs)
