"I am eating the apple."
Translation:Ich esse den Apfel.
i think den is used to describe that you did something and you did the action and die is used to describe "you" i would guess, im new with german
Den is the accusative form of der. "The apple" is the object of the sentence so it's accusative.
DLingo marked "bin" as incorrect. Can some one tell me why it can't be "ich bin essen den Apfel"? 0.o? Learning German after a while makes my brain feel like tapioca, so if some one can help clarify this it will be much appreciated. Thanks.
German doesn't have a continuous aspect. Both 'I eat' and 'I am eating' translate to 'Ich esse'.
dont get it: in the picture it says der Apfel. and i got it wrong too coz i was told to use den Apfel, now I got it wrong again coz i used der Apfel. still got a lot to learn
Entschuldigun, ich glaube ihr seid richtig, die Zatz "ich esse den Apfel" sollen richtig sein.
I'm confused because it doesn't explain when to use "die Apfel" or "den Apfel"
Aaaand here is where duolingo is lacking. 9 million posts isnt gonna teach me how to get it. Hhhhhhh
the different between (der apfel ) (den apfel ), i couldn't understand the grammar of it
