Learning French in Duolingo and I am learning prepositions.
I am having a problem with the following sentence.
Elle est jolie depuis qu'elle est jeune
By this point, we haven't yet touched present perfect. Just present indicative. Naturally, therefore, I inputted the following translation
She is pretty since she is young
In English, the above seemed so wrong. It should be "She has been pretty since she was young", which is of course correct grammatically.
My question is: does the present indicative in French also translates to present perfect in English? If yes, then when do we know when it translates to present indicative? If no, then is duolingo correct?
