"A boy is eating an apple."
Translation:Chłopiec je jabłko.
The reason it does not correct you is that it allows for you to go through the course much faster if you do not have the keyboard input, it is just like in spanish when you type "espanol" instead of "español"
I think the OP is asking more why the system allowed them to answer incorrectly as opposed to being prudent and enforcing usage of the necessary accents/diacritics.
yes but in Spanish they tell you you're missing an accent, but here they don't
If you are talking about the little notification then in that case this is something that needs to be reported to the developers as I don't think "chlopiec" would ever be correct, but I might be wrong, I am a native speaker of polish but have never wrote a single sentence in my life in polish haha
Don't me wrong, accents are very important but in Polish if you dont use; Ł, Ć, Ż ect.. It very rarely means a different word unlike in spanish where its super important
It seems to me that it tells you that it is close, rather than outright fail you, I do not think you get scored fully for it though as the "ł" may look similar to an "l" but is pronounced like a "u"
yeah in the very beginning it didn't tell you if you had an accent missing but then they fixed it
Because you can say "chlopiec" and "chłopiec", but only second version sound good :) "Ł" is diffrent from "l" in pronunciation.
chłopiec - this is not an adult, you will call it "a boy", while "facet" means "man" and it is someone older than "chłopiec"
Struggling to find the difference between "je" and "jem", can anyone explain to me please?
Sort of the same as the difference between "eat" and "eats", as those are just different conjugations of the verb „jeść”:
- Jem – I eat
- Jesz – You eat
- On/Ona/Ono je – He/She/It eats
- Jemy – We eat
- Jecie – Y'all eat
- Oni/One jedzą – They eat
In another one of your comments you quoted your answer and it was missing the Polish letter Ł, which is used two times here. That's probably it. Not using Polish characters will always be accepted, but as a typo.
Although sometimes Duolingo simply rejects a correct answer because of some bug, so that's also possible.
