    ...And what do you play? :)

    Jogamos na roda da capoeira.

    Maybe: "Nós jogamos NA noite." ?

    no. At night = à noite / de noite.

    '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.

    How do i say last night?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

    a noite passada / ontem à noite.

    When is jogamos present and when is it past?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

    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”.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GlennaSol

    I'm not a native speaker, but I would say, 'hoje a noite'. Native speakers, can you confirm this?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/surfx2015

    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"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

    IMO, it should also be accepted.
