  5. "Te óvónő vagy és odarepülsz …

"Te óvónő vagy és odarepülsz a tetőre, jó?"

Translation:You are a kindergarten teacher and fly over to the roof, okay?

August 30, 2016



"Wait, I need to be in character first. What's my motivation?"


"Friendly Attitude, check. Nursery rhymes, check. Patience, check. X335Z-Lightweight Jetpack, check.

Alright, let's do this."


This the beginning of our Superóvónö training/brainwashing


DL sould get some training in teaching foreign languages.What and when to teach .Usually one goes from simple sentences to complicated ones, and from useful subjects to sophisticated ones. WE know about weird flights but we do not parts of the body,how to buy elementary food,etc.Daily life is ignored by DL


Totally agree, I went to hungary recently and I realized that I can say that 89 kindergarten teachers are not flying to the tall tree but over the wide river... But I couldn't even remember how to say "I can" or "I have"


Can be asking for confirmation of something the speaker's uncertain of ("right?" in English) instead of asking the listener to confirm the listener understood ("okay?" in English)?


Yes! In this case: jó? = okay? Or: do you agree?


Not really in this case


All joking aside, if "fly over onto the roof" is incorrect (in place of the very stilted-sounding "fly there onto the roof"), please explain why.


The kindergarten teachers have such impressive skills.


Okay, why do these surreal phrases always involve preschool teachers? For those of you who have taken other languages, does this happen there too?


------ kindergarten teachers are not necessarily pre-school teachers. we , here in the us, have nursery schools to deal with kids younger than five .

óvónő has a number of interesting features: lots of diacritics and the genderization by adding -nő . in hungarian it's short and convenient. but, in english it's the reverse ! . . .

I agree 100%.We are tought all sort of complicated sentences,unnecessary vocabulary but we do not know how to ask for a coffee and the like,


Keresek kávé?


No, I do Italian, Dutch and French, never had a kindergarten show up there.


Kindergarten teacher


2 things - you have two independent sentences that you are trying to combine in to a poorly worded English sentence. Second - You fly to the roof or fly over the roof. In your sentence what are you flying over? You can fly over the garden (something) to the roof. Poorly worded English sentence.


Am I Mary Poppins?




is this in the job description ?


It's a prerequisite.


Here we go with the flying kindergarten teachers again, lol, although somewhat annoying these sentences always make me laugh.


I am getting seriously fed up with these kindergarten teachers. Is there no other occupation in Hungary?! Why Duo does not teach more vocabulary? Once it's about flying, why can it not be a pilot, for example? Flying teachers were funny at the first time but it's getting very boring and dumb.


------- you've got a long road ahead of you, bo . chill and go with the flow . . .

When do you use TO and when ONTO???


TO when you emphasize that you are going to the general area of/around the object and ONTO when you want to specify that you want to get on top of the surface layer of the object.


Isn't it ÁTREPÜLSZ for fly OVER?


We don't fly over the roof in this example, we fly to the roof OVER THERE. Besides that you're correct.


..."Te óvónő vagy és odarepülsz a tetőre, jó?"...

-------- you are a kindergarten teacher and you fly onto the roof over there, okay ? . . .

On Duolingo web the audio is missing, so reported ('The audio does not sound correct.').


Slow hand I find mind-killing exercises. Can I keep that up? I do not know yet? You hold on, I hope for you because of a very beautiful language!


My ❤❤❤❤❤ is that in English we would fly up to the roof, not over to the roof.
