When I see באה after the noun (mom), how do I know it's "is coming" instead of "is mom coming"?
If there is a question mark, or rising intonation, then it is a question.
I feel a phonetic spelling out of the words would help in this program, with perhaps a seperate section just for learning the writing system. I ran into this issue years back in learning Russian. Its difficult, at least for people like me, to multi-task in language learning.
No. The person speaking addresses dad, saying that mom is coming.
Dad, mom is coming.
In order for your suggestion to be true, the sentence would need to have "and" - Dad and mom are coming: אבא ואמא באים
How can you tell the difference between Mom and dad are coming vs is mom and dad coming
In writing: a question mark or the optional question word האם. In speech: a questioning intonation.
I thought so also, but it could be a sentence said to dad, "Dad, mom is coming." Isolation of terms and not getting context is something to be aware that it is easy to do and misunderstand.
I am confused. What is the best way to learn this language, by speech or by actually learning the letters?
Some of the audio doesnt seem to play, And Am I suppose to get a keyboard for this on my pc to do this? sound letters like for Russian dont work.
