'In the night' or 'at night' was not in the possible answers!!!! Duolingo tricks me!!!!!!!!!!!
It's confusing. I feel it should be "na." Otherwise it seems like it would be "We play the night."
That's because it has a + a = à.
The first a = to, at
The second a = the (fem.)
a noite = the night
à noite = at night.
It depends on the context:
- nós jogamos à noite = we play at night
- nós jogamos ontem à noite = we played yesterday night,
How do you say „tonight”? I found in my dictionary both „esta noite” and „a noite”.
I'm not a native speaker, but I would say, 'hoje a noite'. Native speakers, can you confirm this?
yes, "hoje à noite" it is more common
but you can also say: "à noite", "esta noite"
So this could also be, "We play in the evening." :)
What about, "We play tonight"?
