"We are the last men."

Translation:Jsme poslední muži.

Why is this wrong? ;)

My jsme ty poslední muži.


Because "muži" are "TI".

At the same time, in spoken language you would hear "ty muži" specially in prague, but it is not gramatically correct.


Kacenka, thanks so much for your contribution to this course. I didn't know how else to contact you, but this really means a lot to me, and I'm sure many others, because I have a deep history with the Czech people, but I haven't quite gotten fluent enough over the years!


Why not? My jsme ti poslední muži


That is "we are THOSE last man", the demonstrative is really extraneous in Czech while the article is required in English due to the rules of English grammar.
