Tests should be accepted. Means the same thing as tastes (given the lack of context), is the more literal translation of prova, and is grammatically correct in english.
Can I also use "tentar" for the word try or variations? My dictionary says that prova=prove or proof.
Bump to this question. I'd also like to know. Google translates "eu provo" into "I taste" and "ele prova" into "it proves," so I'm curious to know if "tentar" is the best word to use for trying an activity (besides eating).
Perhaps this answer to a similar question will help: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2459569 or, even better, this: http://blogs.transparent.com/portuguese/try-try-again/
Heads up, this sentence doesn't have sound in the audio challenge. I've reported it.
It says it is at the top of this thread...if it wasn't accepted, I would report it
