I used the word "present" instead of "gift" in my answer and got the question wrong. Is 선물 specifically "gift" and not present?
No, in my understanding it can mean both
I have never used gift. You must have had something else wrong
10 people will share one gift? -__-
Some Korean beef gifts are quite substantial.
I used "present" instead of "gift" also and got it wrong
5/9/2019, "I give presents to ten friends." is now accepted as an alternate answer.
Present didnt come up as an option for me, only gift.
Doesnt 에게 mean from someone rather than to someone? Like 진구에게 선물 받아요...
No I think you have it backward. 에게 is to someone
～에게서 means from ～(someone).
What isnt said is that 명 is a count word for people I believe.
Does the order matter for the "친구 열 며에게"? Can "열 명 찬구에게" work?
You would need to add an extra particle to the counter if you use the second order: "열 명의 친구에게".
Yes, the order is important. Particles (like ~에게) are attached to count words
Why is it not "I give 10 presents to a friend" ????
The number and count word go after 진구, and the count word there is for people
명 is a counter specifically for people, so there are 10 people the speaker gives presents to.
I wrote "I give presents to 10 friends" and it said "i give a gift to ten friends" so I think maybe i should not have made presents plural.
I just wrote "I give ten friends presents" and got it wrong.
why is "I send ten friends presents" wrong?
I wrote : I give to ten friends a gift. Is it wrong ? Is the place of the words so important in English or could I write it this way ?
No this is wrong. You can write I give a present/gift to 10 friends
