What is the word for the English word Tour in German?

Eric-H54

In the testing in section 2.2 some of the answers are using Tor and some are using Tour. Is this a spelling mistake in the program and should the accepted German word be "Tour"?

I think it is probably a mistake because tor means gate. You can click on the button on the lesson to report the error. They are very responsive to making corrections when you do that. I missed this one when I did that lesson ... good job (assuming, of course that it is indeed an error).

I don't see a mistake in the lesson. Tour is the same in English as in German. So when you are actually talking about a tour, it would be correct. However, they also do talk about the Brandenburg Tor which in this case refers to a gate and is a famous landmark. So both words are correct depending on how they are used.

Byron, You are correct as tour is the preferred word in both languages , however "Reise" is an alternate, though more associated with the word "trip". Just a thought.

Hallo there, Byron is correct. 'Tour' has the same pronunciation and meaning as in English and 'Tor' is gate. Cheers Paul
