There are two sentences in this lesson the use the word as 'jóven' an adjective.
My dictionary and as online dictionary spell this word without the accident when used as an adjective and a noun. Only in the plural is an accent used.
Can you please tell me whether this is a typo or there is something I am missing.
Thanks very much.
That was a typo. It's been corrected. (no accent on joven, of course)
Gracias y saludos
Also in the singular form of "joven" the stress is on the syllable "jo" in joven. When we make it plural "jóvenes" we need to put the accent in order to keep the stress on "jo", otherwise the stress would be on the second syllable, "ven".
