"We are women and they are men."

Translation:אנחנו נשים והם גברים.

June 28, 2016



Anáchnu nashím ve-hem gvarím.


This is marking אני נשים והם גברים״" as correct. Can "אני" be used in place of "we" as well?


not אני but אנו, which is (as far as I look up just now) an archaic/formal form of אנחנו.


yes i also only just realized this. . i was always seeingאני


er, but does it make sense to teach an archaic form? without mentioning it before?


It's either archaic or formal. And while most people don't have a use for archaic forms, they do for formal. Even if you never say אנו, you will defenintely hear and read it, and should be able to understand it. As for mentioning it, from what I understand the program isn't able to make a destinction within the lessons. But they do usually mention such things in the Tips and Notes on the lessons.


One reason could be, not to be confused and embarrassed when you see אנו when you are reading Hebrew text
