Why du not used instead of dich

Why isn't this "She doesn't like you"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BilgehanEr

She doesn't like you= Sie mag dich nicht.

Thanks, that was surprisingly easy now that you point it out..

for me the same ... -.-

Just check the verb carefully - mogen (they), mag (she).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JonathanRa191470

The form of the verb. Mögen represents "we" or "they".

Why is nicht at the end of the sentence and not after the verb?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeoSchribs

In general "nicht" is put in front of the word it negate, exept if it is a verb. "Sie mögen nicht dich ... ", is not complete but: "Sie mögen nicht dich, sondern deine Schwester." Or: "Sie mögen nicht dich, sondern mich."

I'd like to know this as well!!

Why it didn't accept "they like you not" It's not the same?

Why sie mogen is not a formal you?

I guess because "You don't like you" sounds weird, and even if it didn't, why use both formal (Sie) and informal (dich) in the same context?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Procrastinans

You (who I am respectful of) don't like you (a third person who I am also talking to) ? Perhaps?

But I agree, it seems fairly unlikely.

When the dogs were barking, my aunt said to the postman: "Sie mögen Sie nicht."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JergusKrc

I always write she inatead of they... is there any difference?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/onewingroyal

The verb conjugates differently for she than for they. It's "sie mag" for she and "sie mögen" for they.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IchBinKarl1

Dich, du, ihr? When to use them?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yettingb0t

Thanks for reminding me what people think about me duolingo.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jon202

You don't like you does sound strange - it would be 'you don't like yourself' which is a perfectly valid thing to say! Sie and sich should go together though?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fredgm

Is there a book that goes with DuoLingo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Siddhant021

If its with she,then the verb will be likes whereas in they,it will be like. I hope that helps


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IndigoElf123

The recording is SO bad!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RomeoKouadio

It refused ''They don't like you'',


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonFuchs1

Why can't it be She instead of They?
