is there not an update for the German course to remove this error. Also in French there are two right answers, why it is not in German? Both are correct! I write this 18-1-2018!
What, specifically, is "this error"?
Please be as specific as possible: what do you observe and what would you have expected instead?
What do you mean with "there are two right answers"?
And which sentences do you have in mind with your "both" in "both are correct"?
There are currently 12 different accepted answers for translating "How is your cat?" into German. Any of those 12 should be accepted. (Though, of course, only one answer at a time.)
Did you type a sentence that was rejected? If so, what was the entire sentence?
@Mizinamo If I may say so, many comments here were about "Wie geht es deiner Katze". My understanding is this comment was saying the same thing. I reported "Wie geht es deiner Katze" about three months ago, and waited. Thank you for accepting it now. On the other hand, @gea123gea ,it is not always logical to compare two different language courses.
As far as I can see, "Wie geht es deiner Katze" should have been accepted for at least three months - that was the time of the last change and that sentence seemed to be accepted.
It was doing tricky things with endings, though, so I rearranged the alternatives a bit and perhaps that has helped.
"Wie geht es eurem Kater" translates to "How is your tomcat (or male cat)", and would work if one was asked to translate "How is your cat" into German. 'The tomcat' = 'der Kater', so the dative of 'your tomcat' would be 'eurem Kater'.
Interesting usage of 'Kater', per dict.cc: Puss in Boots = Der gestiefelte Kater The Cat in the Hat = Ein Kater macht Theater Felix the Cat = Felix der Kater
'Der Kater' is also the term for 'the hangover'!
Kater is a male cat, a tomcat.
It's also used colloquially as a word for "hangover".
The neutral word for "cat" (if you're not specifically saying that it's male) is Katze, and the word is grammatically feminine -- so if you use that word, it would be Wie geht es deiner Katze? with the feminine dative ending -er on deiner rather than the masculine dative ending -em.
