IT FINALLY CAME OUT. I AM SO HAPPY. I hope this will be a language where we can make jokes in the comments! I am from the Danish course originally and we joke constantly in the comment section, it must annoy the Spanish and Portuguese learners :3:3:3
As far as I've seen, it is different with every language. It took Danish a few months to be released from Beta and for Duo to support it on the mobile app. Though with Irish everything was available pretty quickly, mostly because of the team who contributed to the language.
Do you mean the chat/comment/discussion section? I know that it is not available on iOS devices for now, I believe that the developers are working on it. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2037073
Feels so odd to be posting in an actual Polish forum after all this time, though I have only been waiting for about half that time
I am only learning Polish for my cousins there and dang already it is harder then German!
There isn't if you debate only the words themselves. It can alter the meaning of the sentence though, but the same way as in English, for example: This is a boy - To jest chłopiec. This is the boy - To jest ten chłopiec - As if you wanted to point out and say "it's him!" - I just roughly translated it into This is that boy. Literally. I guess that is how it works. I might not be correct for I am native and there might be something not actually ringing the bell which should, but in general answer is: no, no, no.
Gee, I remember when, just back in the Summer, Duolingo said that this course was supposed to come out in late 2017! Yet here we are! I still can't believe that Hungarian has been only 1 or 2 days away for the past couple months.
It is a declension. "Chłopiec" is the Nominative, "chłopcem" is a another form.
I'm familiar with declensions because of German. What is the use of the instrumental case? And how many cases are there in Polish?
The instrumental case is a grammatical case used to indicate that a noun is the instrument or means by or with which the subject achieves or accomplishes an action.
There are seven cases: nominative (mianownik), genitive (dopełniacz), dative (celownik), accusative (biernik), instrumental (narzędnik), locative (miejscownik), and vocative (wołacz).
