Whats the difference btn "eats" and "is eating" in translation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iamdonovan

Ei jente har ingen navn.

Ei jente would be right too?

Indeed it would.

I typed "the girl is eating rice", and it told me I was wrong, that is should be "the girl is eating rice" ... What?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kayleigh349548

Nevermind, I misread. It should have been "a girl" not "the girl".

No its wrong the girl = jenta A girl = en jente


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JudithLeeP

Is it jente or jenta?

Why is "A girl eats rice" wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LucasEduar222073

Ei jente eller en jente?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

Either, but be consistent. For Norwegians, it comes down to dialect.

Why "En jente er et barn" was given me wrong (it should have been "ei jente") but here "en jente spiser ris" is correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

Both "en" and "ei" are correct, but for listening exercises you need to enter the one that's actually being said.

Seems 'A girl eats rice' is also correct.
