Translation of 'Maybe (that) we can practice together?'

Translation of 'Maybe (that) we can practice together?'

One of the possible translations given for the last sentence of the exercise is 'Peut-etre qu'on peut s'entraîner ensemble ?' Does not s'entrainer imply a joint activity and so 'ensemble' is not required?

Bonjour Barrie,

"s'entraîner" is a reflexive verb but it doesn't imply a joint activity unless you add a marker (like "ensemble"). 

On peut s'entraîner ? = Can we practise? (individually or with someone else - we don't know)
On peut s'entraîner ensemble ? = Can we practise together? (with someone else)

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
