Yes... this is a miniature kindergarten teacher. They are all over the place.

Egy kis ovónő should be accepted too. I'm native Hungarian

Of course. Nothing like some realistic daily life context to get a grammatical point across

Yes I will remember this for sure!

I thought the Hungarian kindergarten teachers were flying above the Earth. Now they are on curtains as well? Is it folkloric -- or mere madness?

Last time I checked there weren't any magical kindergarten teachers in our folktales. Ugly witches, disguised kings, evil Turks yes, but no flying kindergarten teachers. Maybe what we see is the birth of a new tradition?

I've never seen so many descriptions of kindergarden teachers engaging in odd behaviours in my life! It was another sentence about the kindergarten teachers flying back into the forest, that started me thinking of witches in fairly tales. Very curious this Hungarian imagination.

I got one that was flying above houses. My hungarian friends got a kick out of it

It is clear to me that they were, indeed, flying, but they have since crashed into the curtains. Only the little ones, of course.

It's ok, now I see why they fly throughout the lessons! They are bugs!

If the developers of the Hungarian program would stop perseverating on kindergarten teachers, we might finally move out of this interminable state of beta.

Weird way to learn Hungarian.

if I was laughing about this one I am in stitches over the comments. Glad humour still exists and is appreciated. But I'm not too sure how useful these ubiquitous and intrepid kindergarten teachers are going to be when I try to practise Hungarian in real time.

Presently I am travelling in Hungary, and people here are just as bewildered by this madness as are the rest of us. Leave the kindergarten teachers alone so they can teach the kids. They themselves are uncomfortable with this recuring obsession about their supposed flying capabilities.

Strange sentence very strange, but rather humorous, lol!


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

Ok... this must be some sort of fetish

Ez a leghülyébb mondat

She might have seen a mouse a bit bigger than herself and was shocked enough to forget how to fly!
