Story of my life
Why is 'This boy often talks about the girls' wrong?
Why are they focusing on the prepositional plural case in the "Dative and Plurals" section... Maybe they should change the title of this section...
Sometimes they throw a curve ball to keep us alert.
"Girls" is plural.
"That boy often talks about girls" was marked as incorrect.
"That" instead of "This". The sentence says "Этот", not "Тот".
In a real life situation, this would probably be fine, but Duolingo requires you to stick more closely to the rules, e.g. этот vs. тот.
Why is "This boy often speaks of girls" incorrect?
Please be informed that, both sentences "This boy often speaks about girls" and "This boy often talks about girls" are correct.
I did "This boy talks about girls often" and that was apparently wrong even though I am fairly certain it should have been accepted...
Im not native... Should "frequently" alsocbe accepted here?
Definitely. Report it.
He looks like my friends.
Why is “The boy speaks of the girls often” incorrect??
This is annoying.
It should be "this boy". Also, your sentence sounds a lot less natural than the one at the top of the page.
So what is wrong with:
"This boy is is often talking about girls" ?
You wrote "is" two times
"This boy talks about girls often" is rejected
Duolingo is very sensitive whenever I use the letter "S"
Yep, thats me and the boys back in the day
