"I am not well" is the correct answer so if it was wrong for you then it must be a site issue.
Does the negative switch the word order around from "Jól vagyok?" I know Hungarian word order is fairly flexible, but is this just a common practice to phrase it this way?
"Nem jól vagyok." is also possible, but not as common as "nem vagyok jól". The latter is more calling attention, the former emphasize the intension more.
Why does "Vagyok" have a "-ok" ending? Could you just say "Nem vagy jol" or would that be something completely different? Sorry if I'm asking an obvious question. I want to get the basics out the way first and thought it would be good way of doing that.
vagyok = I am vagy = You are van = He/She/it is vagyunk = We are vagytok = you (plural) are vannak = they are
so the final -ok is the conjugation of the verb at 1st person singular
I found a wonderful blog on Hungarian Irregular verbs which includes what you are asking. https://hunlang.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/all-irregular-hungarian-verbs/?blogsub=confirming#subscribe-blog
I am ok: jól vagyok I am not ok: nem vagyok jól
Why do we put jól differently here?
In Hungarian the forepart has the emphasis. "Nem jól vagyok" makes an emphasis on the intension.
Does this generally imply ilness? Or would you also use this if you are feeling down/sad?
Who made this course? So many right answers and it's write incorrect...the answer "I feel bad(ly)" can also be a right answer
