Walkie-talkie! :D

I put i am walking and speaking but it said talking was the correct answer. Howcome thats wrong here?

Chodzę i understand to mean the habitual, general sense that i walk, in contrast to idę, which only means i am walking right now. So to translate "chodzę" as "i am walking" i think is a near miss

well I can say "chodzę i mówię" when I talk on the phone and walk mindlessly during the conversation. "idę" needs direction.

Ah, I see, thanks for the clarification

The problem is on English side , either it is not a correct English sentence or the course is missing a correct answer.

But can you also chew gum...

active sense in both parts of the sentence structure; I am walking and I am talking. why is this incorrect?

Added now, but have in mind that in Polish repeating the subject would feel just wrong.

Also, remember that "I am walking" (Pr. Continuous) only works here because there is no direction/goal/purpose specified, just 'walking around'. Otherwise, it would have to be I walk/I go (on foot).

Although technically correct English you would rarely repeat "I am" unless in the situation where you wanted to emphasise the fact that YOU are doing something generally in a sarcastic or irritated tone. E.g. I am working and I am earning us money so leave me alone!

So is chodz- an imperfective verb?

August 11, 2017


Yes. Until some point (Simply the "Perfective" skill, I believe), all verbs that you learn in the course are imperfective. "iść" is imperfective as well.

I don't know why, but I entered "Ja chodzę i mówię" and it said INCORRECT - correct solution: "Ja chodzę i mówię.". Uhh??

Must have been a bug. If you could take a screenshot next time, that would be lovely.
