Hi, please accept that there might some odd sentences in either Vietnamese of English, especially at the beginning of the course where vocabularies are limited. It's a way for us to introduce to you new words and examples of grammar. Thank you.
Yes, I don't mind a bit, I love the unusual and funny sentences of duolingo!
Look at yourself dramatically in the mirror ... point to it... and whisper this.
I laughed, then I realized this is actually a good way to practice this & remember it, so I'm gonna do this later.
Actually, it should be "you are I,' even though it sounds weird. I think the one in the example above is just there because it rhymes.
May someone here is able to translate this sentence to spanish? Thanks a lot
Usted es yo / Tú eres yo.
Claro que no hay sentido, pero esto no es el propósito. ;)
Todavía recuerdo un cómic que tenía de pequeño dónde el bueno preguntaba "quién eres" y entonces el malo se quitaba el casco y se veía que era idéntico al bueno, y decía: "yo soy tú".
Ni idea del significado porque no tenía ningún otro tebeo de la colección, pero aquello me dejó intrigado hasta el día de hoy.
It says that I have typos in my answer. Well, there is no way of typing the breathing marks--or even any explanation of what they are--so I do not know what I am supposed to be doing.
Grammatically, it should be "you are I", though natives often use me. Me is accusative. The copula to be neess nominative case, because both parts are same level. At least, you should accept You are I.
The me in "you are me" is the object of the sentence. The first person singular accusative pronoun is "me". "You are I" is ungrammatical English.
The basic meaning of bạn is friend. But it is used in addressing people as well. You can use it for male and female, but I have rarely heard it being used for females. If you get confused, think of comrade or buddy in English, which can also function as a kind of "you".
Such a great message actually! We are all one, we should love each other! Thank you Vietnamese Duo! :-D
I just add it in my system prefs (on my mac or iphone) - but that doesn't help if you use pc &/or android :\
On some of the other languages, there are "accented letter" buttons underneath the box one types in. They tend to accept unaccented answers, though. One beef I have about this one is that there is no way to listen to the spoken prompts slowly, as there is in all but one of the other languages I've been learning on here.
By the way, in Russian and Ukranian, if you can read the Cyrillic well enough to know what the sounds are, you can type them in in our alphbet and they usually accept them.
I have never heard anything like this before. I makes no sense in English, Vietnamese, Spanish, German. or French.
Also, either you made a typo, or you need to work on your subject-verb agreement ("I makes no sense...?")
"You are me" is saying that the person the speaker is referring to is the speaker. "I am a friend" is saying that the speaker is a friend of the person the speaker is talking to.
I understand the English, I mean that the sentence in Vietnamese is rather ambiguous whether it means "You are me" or "I am a friend".
"tôi là bạn" could be understood as I'm a friend. if you don't want any confusion the sentence would go as "tôi là một người bạn". I would definitely understand "tôi là bạn" as I'm a friend before I think of the I'm you meaning.
Ô is another o-sound, there are 3: o, ô and ơ. The tones are explained in the introduction of the alphabet.
This is not Proper grammer but whatever the person who made this not smart with vitamise
I thought this would translate to: "You are mine." I'm not sure if that would be correct or not. Just from reading it though, that's what I thought. I know in this context someone wouldn't say such a thing. I would say: "em là anh" to a significant other of mine, but not necessarily to a person I'm using this language with. Just some thoughts.
I'm having a little difficulty with Vietnamese, because my parents never taught me how to read or write it. They only taught me how to understand it, so does anyone have any tips or advice I could use?
