I couldn't hear the word 'Um' before gato. Is this the usual verbal speed at which words are pronounced in portuguese?
The funny thing is that it felt more correct with the article, but listening to the audio again really made it sound like there was none. Lesson learnt I guess :)
Tap the turtle to get a slower version. Sometimes that makes things worse, by adding extra static around the words. But at least you know you're not missing any!
Duo tripped us up good here
So "tem" = has and "tenho" = have ?
Tem means he has or she has or you have. Tenho means I have
Having come to learn Portuguese from knowing Latin, seeing teneo > tenho makes perfect sense, but tenet > tem is just strange.
Would a female cat be "uma gata"?
cannot hear the difference between els and ele
You mean "eles and ele"?
I think they mean "ela" and "ele"
Ele (ihlee) "ih" rhymes with "it, bit, and quit".
Ela (ehluh) "eh" rhymes with "set, get and pet". Also "luh" rhymes "lunch" "punch" and "bunch".
"They" = "ela and ele" or "elas" or "eles".
"She" = elA, it is a sound more opened.
"He" = elE, it is a sound less opened.
How come it said it was correct but didn't put the correction line as usual?
