¿Cómo se dice "What did they eat last night?" en español?
How do you say these sentences in Spanish?
- What did they eat last night?
- What did Miguel and Manuel eat last night?
- What did they do a while ago?
In cultures that eat the big meal at night, ¿Qué comieron Miguel y Manuel anoche? is fine.
In cultures that eat the big meal (Comida) during the day, and a light supper at night (Cena), I would say, ¿Qué cenaron Miguel y Manuel anoche? (In this case, Comer is not wrong, but Cenar is more exact).
Estudiante, you know the rules: you'll have to give a translation a try before we can help you with correcting your answers.
You might want to place the names after comieron.
¿Qué comieron Miguel y Manuel anoche?
There is a typo on the word "tiempo."
I was going to suggest that you try the machine translator, but it gives a very interesting (but not what you probably want) interpretation of the 2nd sentence.
It does the 1st and 3rd sentences well.
I would love to Vulcan mind meld with that piece of software and see how it derives some of its viewpoints. (It translates the 2nd sentence as "What did Miguel and Manuel make to eat for dinner tonight".)
- ¿Qué comieron anoche? (What did they eat last night?)
- ¿Qué Miguel y Manuel comieron anoche? (What did Miguel and Manuel eat last night?)
- ¿Qué comieron hace un tiempo? (What did they eat awhile ago?)
I only used the tranlator for the "awhile ago" phrase.
Did I get them correctly?
