"talk with"? this kind of implies that the cats are replying...


Same implication also exist in the Polish sentence. Although the replies, if any, are probably non-verbal.


This is the moment when my mimic turned from unimpressed into confused... But well, you do not know how old she is, and for how long she has been living all alone, solely surrounded by her cats. Human beings are desperate for social nearness...


Dom bez kota to głupota :)


I have a kitten on my keyboard helping with the lesson,responsible for errors. I mean literally. :-=)


Polish sentence may indicate my sister likes to talk to cats belonging
to other female - "z jej kotami".

Moja siostra lubi rozmawiać ze swoimi kotami - My sister likes to talk
to her cats (this sentence indicates that the cats belong to my sister)

Lubisz rozmawiać ze swoim/ze swym kotkiem? - Do you like to talk to
your kitten?
Poproś (swojego/swego) kotka, żeby przestał robić błędy - Ask your
kitten to stop making mistakes


It seems that Polish speakers are a bit careless about this distinction ('jej'/'swoimi'). But I think Duolingo should observe it.


There is no way for us to observe it, because the English source sentence doesn't make such a distinction.


Is there a reason the ć is silent there?


I hear "ć" here, but really short. Seems ok to me.


The male voice sounds correct, but the female one indeed doesn't have any ć.


Sounds like „c” to me here. You might try to report for incorrect audio, but I admit in normal to fast paced speech it's easier to pronounce and still understandable. Perhaps there are some phonetics rules at play here that I'm not aware of.


I hear it too. Polish sounds are remarkably consistent in my experience, depending on letter position and adjacent letters.


i think the voice is not perfect. I am native speaker, and to me it sounds like "rozmawiadz" or "rozmawiac"


Surely it should be "talks to her cats"
