"He loves and dad loves."
Translation:הוא אוהב ואבא אוהב.
They have an official memrise course for it now: https://www.memrise.com/course/1087087/hebrew-alef-bet/
They really need an intro lesson which just focuses on letters an only letters. This is just way way too hard.
My answer is the same as the correct answer however it is marking me incorrect. I have reported it but it still says I am wrong. What do I do?
I get that Duo is teaching through gamification, but Not explicitly teaching the alphabet is really counter productive
They do teach the alphabet, click at the first activity one time and then you'll see a key and a lightbulb, click on the lightbulb and you will see the lesson.
The word הוא, meaning 'he', is always spelled with 'א at the end.
Generally though, it's rare to have to add 'א for an 'u' vowel sound. It usually only requires the 'ו. For example,
sugar = סוכר (pronounced sukar).
They should include pronunciation sounds in all the activities since it's very difficult to know how to pronounce the words just by looking at them.
The new Duolingo format doesn't work in Hebrew... I have to read the words in the inverse order...
Can you please tell me when I should put a 'vav' in the word אוהב and when to leave it out?
present tense (singular masculine) = אוהב, ohev
past tense (third person singular masculine, i.e. "he") = אהב, ahav
,אהבה "Love" as spelled here is both a noun and a verb? So, it's a noun and this is also the masculine singular present tense? We have been translating "Is love coming?" and now "He loves and dad loves." Am I missing a pronunciation difference?
ll אוהב = the verb 'love' for singular masculine in present tense; אהבה = the noun 'love' OR the verb 'love' for singular feminine third-person in past tense.
He loves me = הוא אוהב אותי
She loved me = היא אהבה אותי
Love at first sight = אהבה ממבט ראשון
