  5. "Han seguido sin mí."

"Han seguido sin mí."

Translation:You have continued without me.

October 19, 2013



Duolingo did not like "They have carried on without me", although it seems like a reasonable translation.

December 27, 2014


Agreed - I included "They continued on without me" and am confused as to why that would not be accepted.

February 5, 2015


I have something very similar. My guess is that we just didn't use the present prefect of "have"

February 16, 2015


yes, the constructors suffer " literalicy" disease

April 12, 2015


MissMurphy Your sentence lacks the auxiliary verb.

November 8, 2015


"carried on" is too collequial for the DL computer

November 8, 2015


"They have gone on without me" was accepted 2/2/2019

February 2, 2019


Is "You've left without me" a valid translation? I know that it's not literally what "seguido" means, but it just seems so much more natural in English!

March 21, 2014


Yes, "you've left without me" is a much more common English expression than "you've continued without me".

January 1, 2015


It might be common. However, there's nothing in the Spanish sentence that indicates that "they" or "you" have left. We have very little context and can't make any assumptions about what was being done.

"Han seguido sin mi" just means that you/they have continued doing whatever they/you were doing without "me."

"You've continued without me? But you've nearly completed the Lego. You should have waited. I'm glad you didn't leave though."

Seguir does not mean leave (nor does it necessarily imply movement from one point to another).

April 24, 2016


They've left without me. Sounds wrong?

July 2, 2014


"They have continued without me." works too, and might sound more natural to you.

February 25, 2015


No. That's not what seguir means. Seguir means follow or continue. If you're all doing a task and somehow they keep doing it without you, you're the one who's left, obviously. They're just still continuing to do it. They are standing in the same exact location, continuing without you.

April 24, 2016


Sounds about right to me actually, albeit a bit dramatic - that's what I would say if I had just found out that my friends left me.

November 21, 2014


That is what I used. Obviously got it wrong. I feel robbed.

January 30, 2015


why they have used mi' not just mi?

October 19, 2013


Mí = me (when it is an object with a preposition, 1st person singular)

Mi = my.

October 19, 2013


Babella, what does that mean next to your name? Do you have 163 bombs or whatever that is?

November 7, 2013


It is the day streak, if you do not fail to practice, it keeps counting the days, so I have apparently been practicing daily for 163 days already :]

November 7, 2013


I have seen "with me" = conmigo.

Can you say "sinmigo" here?

July 18, 2017


Decirle...a mi esposa...que la amo

June 29, 2014


I wonder why "You have proceeded without me" was marked wrong

March 3, 2015


Proceed should be accepted per wordreference. Report it.

Proceed - formal (continue) = continuar⇒ vi, seguir⇒ vi, proseguir⇒ vi

I'm sorry for interrupting you; please proceed. = Lamento la interrupción, por favor continúe.

Wrong verb

November 8, 2015


I asked why wrong, and you just repeat it’s wrong. Very useful answer indeed

January 7, 2019


They have gone without me. What's wrong with that? why is "on" necessary. It is not in English, and I do not see it written in the Spanish version.

January 16, 2015


You've used the wrong verb. There's nothing in the Spanish sentence that implies that they have gone anywhere. Seguir means many things in various expressions, but by itself it usually means to follow or to continue.

They have gone without me. = Han ido sin mi.

July 16, 2018


They have followed without me. Whats wrong with that?

January 7, 2019


The verb “to follow” requires a direct object. One can follow somebody or someone’s advice or steps, but without an object the verb is meaningless.

January 7, 2019


i just wanna rolley rolley rolley with a dab of ranch i already got some dimond's to hold up my pants

January 30, 2019


Why not "They have followed without me"

March 24, 2019


Since when "han" refers to "you"? It´s "they"!!! Correct that please.

July 10, 2019


The have continued without me is incorrect. Isn't HAN both you (plural) have AND they have?

August 5, 2019


Two complaints: 1) "they have followed without me" was not accepted, but should have been. "Seguir" is commonly translated as "follow" or "continue". There is no context in this isolated sentence that indicates either should be preferred. 2) The subject of "han seguido" can be ellos, ellas, or ustedes and, again, there is no context in this isolated sentence that indicates which should be preferred.

If the above are correct, then combining 1) and 2) provides us with 10 possibile and equally correct answers. The correction program should allow them all.

August 20, 2019


I said 'they have left without me' but the translation is 'you have continued without me'???? wouldnt that be 'has seguido'?

September 12, 2019


In Spanish, the plural “you” is Ustedes which, historically, is the abridged form of “vuestras mercedes”(=your mercies). That is why, in the absence of ellos/ellas, “Han” is perceived as “you have”, although it may mean “they have” as well.

September 12, 2019


they have followed without me is correct and should be accepted

September 25, 2019


Correct?? To my knowledge, with an animate subject, the verb “follow” is always used with a direct object. They have followed whom? Besides, in English, the Present Perfect tense is not used as widely as the similar tense is used in Spanish. The given Spanish sentence, as I understand it, describes a particular occasion in the past, so the Past Simple form is required in English: “They continued / went on without me”.

September 26, 2019


i put have cotinued without me!!!

October 29, 2019


Gave the same answer

September 1, 2014


Doesn't seguir also mean to follow?

March 1, 2019


What is wrong with 'she continued without me'?

March 19, 2019


OIC, because han is plural.
