Translation:I am usually a man, but sometimes I am a woman.
I translated בדרך כלל in this particular case as 'in general' and was marked wrong - the correct answer was 'generally'. In English these mean exactly the same thing. Both should be correct answers.
generally, usually בדרך כלל. in general, overall באופן כללי. I learned to translate it like this.
The distinction in English between 'usually/generally' and 'overall/in general' is so fine that it seems to me it depends on context rather than an arbitrary translation of each expression to an equivalent Hebrew expression, especially where it appears out of context. In fact, if you look at the Hebrew words literally, they both mean 'in a general way' or thereabouts, which can be translated in a variety of ways into English. Here, where it is out of context, I still maintain both translations should be accepted.
Cultural marxism infecting Duolingo. Hope they don't destroy Duolingo the way they did to MTV, ESPN, Disney, NFL, F1...
I might have said bosh, but my gosh, I saw the comments supportive of insanity, this "gender" insanity of the last few moments.
Like Fernando, my first thought was of theater (remember when Peter Pan was played by an actress). I'm a retired biology teacher, and two X chromosomes makes you a female, XY makes you a male. Why can't people just recognize that there is a whole continuum for either gender, i.e., you can have a woman with traditionally feminine characteristics and another woman can be what we used to call a tomboy. They are both still women. A man might be very gentle or "feminine," but he is still a man and not any less a man then some football player or Charles Bronson type.
So, you're learning Hebrew, but also peddle antisemitic conspiracy theories?
I didn't read anything here against Jews. Funny thing: Marxism isn't Judaism. So insensitive to your weak heart, maybe; conspiracy against Jews, definitely not
Cultural Marxism has nothing did do with anti semitism. Marx himself was an anti Semite and bigot as is Marxism. If you are equating the two it's you who are the bigot.
