"Te szereted az iskolát?"

Translation:Do you like the school?

July 18, 2016



It's a general question, even though it uses the definite article and the definite conjugation of the verb. It's similar to things like this:

Szereted a népzenét? (Do you like folk music?)

Rajongok a rockért. (I'm a fan of rock.)

Szereted a matematikát? (Do you like math?)

Nem, inkább a kémiát szeretem. (No, I like chemistry)

Félsz a kutyáktól? (Are you afraid of dogs?)

In cases where the same sentence could be read both ways (Szereted az iskolát? could also be a question about a specific school), it's up to context to decide.

How do I recognise when to use the definite article in questions like these?

Can szereted mean both you love and you like?

Is this now a specific school and thus definite, or school and going to class in general, like the English translation implies? Shouldn't it be "Do you like the (e.g. your) school?", then?

It can mean both. Without context I think of the general meaning.

Why not THE school at this example? Az iskola.

It could also be "the school" here.
