"Do you drink milk?"
Translation:Ты пьёшь молоко?
This question was a little unkind as we have not been given any examples of the second person plural until this moment! I made a lucky guess that пьете (I do not know where to find е with the diaeresis) was a second plural, purely because it happens to resemble the equivalent form in ancient Greek.
I know Duolingo lesson's are not perfect, but, it's free, and when I have a question before answering, I click on a browser tab and Google search the answer like: how do you say You drink milk in greek, for instance. Or, I just just enter gibberish for Duolingo to show the the anwer: Then I cut and past the answer in my notebook so that when Duolingo asks me again (and Duolingo always asks a failed question again), then I will have the answer. Since a Duolingo language tree can't possibly, "teach" every conjugation, inflection, etc., I use topics to search for the answers on Google Search, such as how do you say: I drink milk, etc, how do you say He drinks mik, they drink milk. Sometimes when I can't figure it out asking Google, I come to the discussions and read previous comments, questions and answers, and that helps. I know Duolingo is not a comprehensive language learning platform. But, I am using it as a starting point which helps me to know what questions I need to ask on the internet, and on youtube. My goal, learn languages without ever having to pay for a book or specialized program. Thanks!
you forgot the ё and you need to switch both words around, there is some word order in Russian
Your screenshot says, "Correct solutions." You must choose both Вы пьёте молоко? and Ты пьёшь молоко in order to be marked correct. In English, both sentences would be phrased, "Do you drink milk?" There is only one way to say this in English, and there are two ways to say it in Russian. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
This Duolingo resource may help on how to install the keyboard: Russian: the Alphabet and the Keyboard
Phonetic transliteration of Cyrillic is notoriously inconsistent, and I really recommend one of the resources above. Otherwise, try p'yosh; it's my best guess.
Sure, sorry p'yosh didn't work for you. Glad you found a way around пьёшь.
Unfortunately no one on these discussion boards has a way to make it accept your answer, so if you think your response should be accepted, all you can do is "report" your answer as correct when you submit it. The question will still repeat, though, until you get it right -- so downloading an alternative keyboard input or using the online Winrus will be your truly best bet.
Okay im confused a little on sentence structure and grammar here. Im trying to make it more solid and easy to remove. To have is a verb. So if the sentence was: D you have milk? it would be: У тебя есть молоко? To drink is a verb. So why is it not: У тебя пьёшь молоко? Im sure theres an easy explanation someone might now.
