Translation:Parks are uninteresting.
I was going to hover over the word and then I saw that it was jaemi and was like "Ok I got this!" and I typed "there is no fun at the park" and got it wrong :P
maybe I am just a pee-brained person, but these sentences are pretty hard and I am committing almost nothing to memory(from trying to focus on so much.) I do not feel that I have enough fundamental words in my vocabulary to start completing full sentences. All I have is the alphabet now I have to form full ideas, this is probably my own fault for not practicing consistently enough and the lack of reading notes, this is beautifully unique language is under the hardest category of languages for English speakers to learn after all.
Well, it looks like you are not with the right preparation. Everyone here is in the same situation, I am in the same situation, so here goes a tip: after a skill, keep strengthening it and strengthening. Practice makes perfect.
Take it slow. As an English speaker these are coming to me fairly easily. Pace yourself and set weekly goals.
Yes. 재미 is usually translated as fun (noun). So if there is no fun, you can infer "boring." However they have a word for boring: 지루하다.
Although 주루하다 and 심심하다 wouldn't work in this instance since they are verbs. 처는 공원에서 심심했어. For instance. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Whoops, I should edit my last comment. Yes 심심하다 cannot be used here because it translates to "to be bored." Therefore it can only describe people or animals who are not enjoying themselves. 지루하다 on the other hand is "to be boring" which can thus describe the park, a movie, or whatever.
I'm a bit confused in when we should use 은/는 or 이/가. 공원에 길이 있습니다 - There is a road in the park 바다에 산은 없습니다 - There is no mountain in the sea Can anyone help?
This sentence doesn't make any sense. You could say, "Parks are boring or Parks are not fun" I never said or heard anyone say, "Parks are uninteresting."
"Parks are not fun" is the best answer. The word "uninteresting" was definitely not a word that I would think of at this moment.
So Topic Markers and Subject Markers have a variety of different uses. It's up to the context of the sentence for you to figure out what the speaker is trying to convey. In this instance, I think the person is saying " Parks in general are boring, " or " I think all parks are boring. " You'll find the notes for the Topic/Subject Markers here if you want a little more of an explanation.
Or it might be depending on how you wrote it. Remember, Korean is about context so if you wrote one word as plural, the rest of the words have to match it. This is the most common mistake I see on discussion pages when people get an error that isn't due to Duolingo having a funky translation issue.
Maybe I can give an example in English to make sense:
" She has a cats "
Obviously the sentence is incorrect but there are multiple ways to fix it depending on if you want to indicate the girl has one cat or multiple cats. For instance:
" She has cats "
Meaning she has more than one cats.
" She has a cat "
Indicating she only has one cat.
So when you're translating Korean to English, you have to keep those indicators consistent with the noun. Hopefully that makes sense.
The primary translation I've seen is ' fun ' but it can also mean interesting as far as I can tell.
I wonder why but I sound korean when I read korean. is that because I'm reading korean that I sound korean?
Sometimes repeating lessons 재미업습니다!
But, learning alphabet helped me a lot. Working Duolingo web instead of app...keeping those notes and tips handy.
Now since they added multiple levels, it gives you more chances to practice different word combinations.
Be brave and repeat the lessons. There is always something I forgot or did not understand.
Oml i realised that 재미(jaemi) sounds a little bit like jams
The park has no jams
I clicked the word and it said it means boring, so I typed boring and it said that's wrong it means "uninteresting." You're sending me mixed messages here.
Wait I accidentally left the S off parks, maybe that's why it was counted wrong. Sorry I'm tired my brain hurts and I don't think you can delete comments here
