Sorry for the stupid sentences like this. But anyway, just wait ten more years, and indeed cars will be flying everywhere. :)

Don't apologise! Silly sentences like this are much more entertaining for both those who write them and those who read them. I've always found that to be part of the charm of Duolingo courses. :D

I agree. we must be aware of how difficult it must be for the question-setters to compose logical sentences using such a necessarily limited vocabulary (Hungarian still at basic level).

Perhaps more fun, but it can be quite confusing if an answer doesn't seem to make much sense, yet is the right answer.

They should be by now. (according to Back to the Future :D)

There was a car that pulled a trailer with wings and a tail section. You stopped the car, attached the wings and tail, and you had a flying car. I think they were made in the 50s, possibly the 60s.

The Red Army had a flying tank.

it is ok that it is entertaining but when i am trying to translate the sentence that a car flies above the city then i assume i must be wrong........

According to Wikipedia, A Jetson család - The Jetson family.

The Jetsons; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Jules Verne; Hungarian linguists at Duolingo - and before we know it, this sentence won't just be a whimsical, eccentric statement to test our burgeoning langauge skills, but a real mode of transport. http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericmack/2015/03/16/finally-a-flying-car-could-go-on-sale-as-soon-as-2017/#60af8953219e. Sziasztok!

Nice. this is a fun one


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RominaDuo2

Hungary is a very advanced country :p


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

Most likely piloted by flying Hungarian kindergarten teachers!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kendra.mulder

Forces the learner to actually translate, rather than "game" the translation. XPs from learning

    I am simply in love with this kind of sentences. I could bet that it is the best way of learning, both the grammar and the vocabulary, too.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TonyWare1

    Give it another 10 years and this will be commonplace. Dubai is now expermenting with flying taxis.

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

    The Hungarians have been hiding the flying cars!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nemanja681899

    Why do i need "the" in the begining of the sentence(when translating). In a lot of examples i think its not that mandatory to have it, or not at least to count as a mistake.


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

    Nemanja, we're talking about a single specific car here, so the article is needed.
