  5. "Ona je Kateřina a on je Matě…

"Ona je Kateřina a on je Matěj."

Translation:She is Kateřina, and he is Matěj.

September 12, 2017



Ona is she, on is he, what is ono?


It. Please use a dictionary, tje Tips and notes or the hints provided.


Can you suggest any good on-line Czech dictionaries? (Other than Google translate).


Google Translate makes a very poor dictionary.

I use slovnik.seznam.cz for a bilingual dictionary and prirucka.ujc.cz for a monolingual dictionary.


Why Kateřina can't be Catherine?


Do not translate names.


There are too many spellings of the English translation of Kateřina: Catherine, Katherine, Katharine, Katrina, etc. Also, in general it is not good practice to translate someone's name. If Jane Doe travels to Spain, her name does not become Juana.


Because otherwise your answer will not be accepted in this course. It is as simple as that.


When I listen to this at normal speed, the speaker sounds as though she says ona for Matěj. But when I listen at half speed, it is clearly on. But then I put it at normal speed again, and I distinctly hear ona.

I did use to the REPORT button for this; just curious to know if anyone else hears what I hear.
