The sentence needs to state "You all are Chinese" to imply the plural tense
... or Duo should accept the singular, too. English is simply ambigious here and both translations are correct.
There can be two answers here...Ninyi ni Wachina or Wewe ni Mchina.
I actually think otherwise...the answer is correct.this is the translation of the statement youve given..."you all are Chinese"=Ninyi nyote ni Wachina.
What about ''wewe ni mchina''? Is that wrong?
I guess this is in the section with all the plurals, but it seems like both should be valid.
I know right! Thats what i put and i got it wrong
Wewe ni mchina and ninyi ni wachina are both accepted now :-)
What is the difference between Mchina and Wachina?
Singular and plural
Wachina is more than one mchina is just one
Thank you for the info but the lesson did not indicate that 'though it makes sense. So the two are not interchangeable?
Mchina is singular. Wachina is plural.
There's nothing implying that the answer should be stated in the plural sense
The only hint is the capitalization in the word bank. I agree that the singular should be valid.
Is there a difference between "Nyinyi" and "Ninyi"?
No they are spelled differently but mean the same thing
They mean the same thing...BTW,there are other swahili words that are like this too...
check out the hints at the beginning of Swahili -- i just read it and learned the difference
Thanks Judith. I'll check it out.
a big one
It doesn't state if its singular or plural, like several has mentioned above.
Quiero aprender swahili desde el español
I hate that there is no distinction between plural you or singular you. Like, I know both but I'm guessing and hoping that's what they meant.
you can't distinguish the 2 in English, so both Swahili translations are usually accepted
In swahili we have nafsi ya kwanza-first person,nafsi ya pili-second person na nafsi ya tatu-third person...you can start here to know the actual differences.
Wewe ni Mchina = You are Chinese. Correct?
Wa expresses the plural
Wewe is plural so why is this wrong
wewe is singular, 'nyinyi/ninyi' is plural
No spoken translation of China
ok i have no idea why its saying it in plural but its WRONG
When you you use wachina and mchina. Or watanzania and mtanzania
There is a comment by AbelMarkanz above that says Wa is plural. So then M must be singular. Please correct me if I am wrong.
what's the difference between nyinyi and ninyi?
I agree. Or pls indicate you(pl). Otherwise the difference is not clear.
I think that is correct!
