"Ő egy kicsit keres."

Translation:She is looking for a small one.

To look for a little one = to look for something that is small

To look for a little bit = to spend a short amount of time looking for something

Does the Hungarian version mean both of these things?

Yes, it does, and this is true for all sentences with 'egy kicsit.'

  • I am eating/going to eat a little one. = "Eszem egy kicsit."
  • I am eating/going to eat a little bit. = "Eszem egy kicsit."

In short, do we agree that "She's looking for a little" should be marked correct?

July 13, 2016


Definitely. I've failed several times because of that, totally annoying!

Can you all hear "egy" in the audio? I hear "Ő kicsit keres". Perhaps my ears are showing their age.

My Hungarian friend is always correcting me when I pronounce the difficult "gy" sound in Hungarian wrongly. This Duolingo speaker takes the easy way out!

I have the same problem. I just listened to it 10 times and do not hear "egy".

Also surely "She looks for a small one" should be correct?

Also "He is looking for a little one"?

Im must comfortable pronouncing egy as "edge" in English. Will I sound odd?
