I don't understand why there is "det" instead of "der", anyone could explain it to me?
"det er" is the equivalent of the English phrase "there is". (Literally, "it is") The confusion arises because in the English phrase "there" has lost its sense of indicating place and become a grammatical marker. E.g. in the sentence "there is a time to work and a time to play " time isn't anywhere. However, we still use "there" by itself to indicate place or position and it looks like the same word.
Cf: "det er mange stolen" lit = it is many chairs.
I hope this isn't too confusing!
Yep, one of the many audio glitches in this course. The word on its own sounds fine, but in this sentence it definitely has an 'r' sound.
I put in a report, but am I missing something or is "many" and "several" the same thing? "Several" was marked wrong.
