Знать means to know, while уметь means to be able to

I'm Russian 40 Yo. 33 lived in Russia. I can say "Как вы знаете мама может/умеет все" is incorrect. We mostly do not use that in speech. It can be a presenter to auditorium say "Как вы знаете + fact statement", in normal speech the correct way is a Ты же знаешь мама может/умеет все

I did use the "should be correct", but why isn't "Как ты знаешь, мама всё умеет" OK? I've seen other examples where it seems the verb is placed last where in English it is placed in the middle.

I'm curious about this too. «Как вы знаете, мама всё умеет» was also marked as incorrect.

It is a correct sentence, Duolingo just doesn't have it programmed as a correct answer. Report it and hope they get to it in the next couple of years.

“как знаешь, мама умеет всё” (corrected to “как ТЫ знаешь, мама умеет всё”)

I already know it is very practical in russian to omit the pronoun and imply it through the conjugation. I hope this turns accepted in the future.

Why can you accept: "Как знаете, мама умеет всё?"

Why is " как знаете" wrong. Can't "вы" be assumed?

Why is "Как вы знаете, мама всё умеет" incorrect? I placed the pronoun "всё" before the verb "умеет" since I usually see pronouns placed before verbs. Is "everything" being emphasized here by having "всё" go after "умеет"?

This sentence what pretty complex to translate. I tried this "Как ты знаете, мама знает как все делать." but it says it is wrong. Is it?

November 5, 2015


Ты знаешь, вы знаете. Conjugation. "Знает, как все делать" is grammatically correct, but sounds unnatural. "Уметь" is a better translation for "to know how to".

why "мама может делать всё" is wrong? I think it means mum can do everything.

This may sound weird, but how is 'умеет' triggered/used?

October 29, 2017


Chouldnt it be сделать?

Is the ты" really compulsory here

June 25, 2018


why not "так" ?

July 21, 2018


Can anyone explain why the word order in "мама всё умеет" is wrong and "мама умеет всё" is correct?

September 28, 2018


I was marked wrong for "Как знаешь...". Is the pronoun necessary here? I feel like I've seen it omitted in some cases.

How can we make difference between " she knows everything " and " she can do everything "
