"The girl sees a boy."

Translation:הילדה רואה ילד.

June 23, 2016



Pronunciation: "Hayaldah roah yeled."

February 14, 2017


Hebrew is going to be the most difficult language I have tried but thankfully there is no accusative case, as in Esperanto.

September 7, 2016


Sorry to break it to you but Hebrew does-technically but not really have an Accusative. It's a preposition used before a definite direct object.

  • ha'yalda ro'ah yeled - The girl sees a boy
  • ha'yalda ro'ah et ha'yeled - The girl sees the boy

It's not an accusative case though. Just a marker for definite objects.

Cases make a language a lot easier and more logical.

September 28, 2017


Yeah. To be honest, it's sort of like how people are complaining that there are no written vowels in Hebrew; sometimes, simplifying things can make them more complicated in another way. lk, y cn stll ndrstnd wht 'm syng, bt t's mr dffclt.

Wanderer134 For masculine - ro-eh and for feminine - ro-ah

March 25, 2017


MERRCEDES in Hebrew there are two main options to make a verb feminine - either with a ת or with a ה at the end. For example : eat - אוכל/אוכלת Give - נותן/נותנת Sit - יושב/יושבת Prepare - מכין/מכינה Explain - מסביר/מסבירה Lift - מרים/מרימה You will need to memorize which verb requires which suffix for the feminine form.

I am really finding enjoyment in learning hebrew. I never thought of learning a language. I have horrble short term memory, and kind of on the dyslexic side. But because of my desire to learn the bible better, (e.g. Gen 1) I started searching the web for what ever I could find to help me learn. I took over a year to learn the aleph-bet and vowel points. And then I memorized Gen 1:1-5. It seems my dyslexia made the right to left direction of the language a natural ability for me to learn. Then I found Duolingo, and that really made my learning explode. I am the kind of person who gives up easily if things get too difficult. So I can't believe that I have kept up with this as long as I have. But I can't get enough of learning hebrew. Thanks Duolingo!

why in the girl eats the verb ends en ת and with see we must write ה?In both case is "SHE"

September 20, 2016


Unfortunately, the ending simply isn't the same for every verb. In fact, in this case, the only difference between the masculine and feminine form of the verb is the vowel!

What is the purpose of the רואה or the other option where the segol mark is beneath א?

May 9, 2017


That would be the male form of the verb

Ok thank you.

I typed הילדה רואה ילד but it was marked as wrong...

June 23, 2016


Are you sure? Try taking a screenshot next time it happens.

haven't you mistaken apostroph for Yod? that's what I did

April 28, 2017


I think there's a problem...I tried all the three choices but they are all wrong...

June 23, 2016


There is also a possibility that more than one answer is correct in the multiple choice. Do you mean that you tried each individually? What were the choices that you were given?

July 24, 2016


it works for me.. maybe they fix it.

הילדה רואה את הילד זה נכון

August 7, 2016


זה לא נכון, זה a boy לא the boy.
