10 people will share one gift? -__-
Some Korean beef gifts are quite substantial.
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
Or you could be wrong, as Duolingo is constantly updating in response to feedback etc
5/9/2019, "I give presents to ten friends." is now accepted as an alternate answer.
Why is it not "I give 10 presents to a friend" ????
명 is a counter specifically for people, so there are 10 people the speaker gives presents to.
The number and count word go after 진구, and the count word there is for people
Is written "친구", not "진구". Btw
I used "present" instead of "gift" also and got it wrong
What isnt said is that 명 is a count word for people I believe.
It is said in Tips and Notes section
Doesnt 에게 mean from someone rather than to someone? Like 진구에게 선물 받아요...
～에게서 means from ～(someone).
No I think you have it backward. 에게 is to someone
Present didnt come up as an option for me, only gift.
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
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.
Because of the wording you used and you needed to put "to". So the correct answer could be "I give a gift to ten friends". And also, do you speak Spanish? Bacause I recognized the spanish in your name, "elchorizo"
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
Pretty hard to pronounce it ):
