Perfect 1, level 1, first lesson, first sentence - in my opinion, too difficult: perfect tense, a negative, plus an idiomatic phrase all in the one sentence!
I don't know what hit me in this sentence.. thanks for clarifying above, I won't fret over this one too much.
Is it definitely at "my house" or could it be at a house or the house? Hmmm.
'bei mir zu Hause' definitely is 'at my house' or 'at my home'.
Why not "bei meine Hause"? Forgive the likely error in declining the possesive adjective. I am terrible at it.
Exactly my issue. If "zu Hause" is definitely always the house of the speaker, they should really introduce that context in an earlier lesson.
zu Hause is not definitely always the house of the speaker:
Meine Mutter hat keine Reis zu Hause gegessen. my mother's home
Meine Mutter hat keine Reis bei mir zu Hause gegessen. my home
Even as written i still feel like this could mean "my mother has not eaten rice with me at home", which could be either her home or my home.
bei mir indicates that is at my home; mit mir is with me.
bei meinem Haus/ bei mir zu Hause, i think it would be right either way but i am not 100% sure.
Zu Hause - Home in my house, Nach Hause -Home to my house
Why cant the answer also be "My mother has no rice to eat at my house."
meine Mutter hat keinen Reis bei meinem Haus gegessen?
i dont know why they used "bei mir zuhause " but if you want to use "bei" as usual then the sentence would be:
meine mutter hat keinen reis bei Meinem haus gegessen
thanks. I edited it
These sentances are idiotic
Do you have some better to offer?
