I can't distinguish "her" from "har"
The first is an [æ] like "apple." The second is an [a] like "spa."
Is there a place on duo lingo where I can learn the phonetics of an alphabet?
You can check out the Tips and Notes for our "Basics" skill. For other languages, you can check out their Tips and Notes pages, or check Wikipedia/Wiktionary.
I find it so hard to understand (in spoken) when it is 'applesin' or 'applesinen' etc etc
This exercise asked me to pick out the english words. However it states the correct answer is "Here are the orange and the apple." Rather than, "Here is the orange and the apple." It should only be "are" if the fruit specified are pluralised.
i am pretty sure the answer should be " here are the orange and the apple" there are two elements
Yes, I was wondering if anyone could describe the difference for us if there is an audible one? Or is it just a homophone that depends on context?
I'm curious: why is it "et eple" (apple) but "en appelsin" (apple of China)?
I still have problems with "the" since I am not a native english speaker
It feels like the English part should be "Here is the orange and the apple". Maybe I'm wrong
