Why do I have to put "cái" in front of it?
cái refer to things, while con (ie. một con mèo) refer to an animal
Thank you, this really helps.
"Cái" is an example of a classifier. There is a discussion of how classifiers work in Vietnamese here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/17166436
Cái is a noun prefix used to describe the noun as an inanimate object
This asks to translate "A mug" not "One mug", is it necessary to answer "Một cái ca" when asked to translate "A mug"?
rolling over the words shows no requirement for the classifier :(
This is a wrong translation. It translates to A mug NOT One mug.
Chào các bạn =))
It's cá not ca right?
It's exactly ca, a mug (and it don't like your avatar lol)
In Vietnamese, A mug means "một cái ca", and also means "cái ca" because quantity is only one, can be omitted.
Why do I need the Mot?
