  5. "He is a man"

"He is a man"

Translation:Αυτός είναι ένας άντρας

October 11, 2016



Do you need to use ένας here? There are later discussions which say a/an is often optional in Greek and I wonder if that is the case here.


What us the difference between Αυτός and Αυτό?


αυτός is masculine, αυτό is neuter.


So what is the word for fiminine gender


So would you say Αυτή if you're talking about a female? Or just if you're female?


So would you say Αυτή if you're talking about a female?

That's right.

she = αυτή

Here are the basic for how to proceed on Duolingo. There are definitions for all the words which you can find by moving your cursor over the word. You will see a list of words....take the first word, that's how Duo works.

Look at the links on the Greek Forum there are many more hints.


Each Skill has Tips & notes explaining the lessons. You can find them by clicking on the light bulb image at the start of the lessons.

Read the comment by other learners you can get a lot of information there.

And when you have a question just ask.


If you go to your profile you can delete the course and restart from the begging


Thanks...will give it a try...


I cannot type IS in Greek on the keyboard or SMALL for the next question. How do I do it on a Qwerty keyboard
