It sounds like "saba" but it's pronounced "sagwa". Is the recording sped up at all? It sounds sped up.
yes you right, korean are very depending on context
사과 derived from 沙(사) 果(과) combining 沙果
Haha yeah, I tried to write it just out of curiosity, but it sad it is wrong :/
I said "apples" and it said i was wrong, even though in a previous lesson it said i was right when i said "apples"...
the word alone is assumed singular. there are indicators to show plurl (i.e. 사과[들] = apple[s]). im pretty sure the example given is not correct, but for sure you need other words or particles to show that its more than one, otherwise assume singularity.
I wrote the exact same thing, “An apple, Apple” but it said I was wrong, any help?
im not getting the pronounciation of " apple" can anyoune just write in english that how to pronounce??
I typed it correctly, it still said I was wrong. I did it twenty times and restarted the lesson, is it glitched?
If you want some help, please show exactly what you typed. There can be a difference in the character you used? Did you type "apple" or "an apple" to translate from Korean? Did you have a different version of the lesson?
I typed in "apples" and it counted it correctly. Can "사과" mean both the singular and plural form of "apple"?
ㅗ and ㅜ are not a korean letter for a "w" sound.</pre>
ㅗ sounds like the English word "Oh". ㅜ like the vowel sound in a cow's "moo". ㅡ like a shorter vowel sound in "look". The w sound happens when ㅗ or ㅡ or ㅜ are combined with other Korean vowels.
의 와 위 외 are examples.
The Romanization, using English letters, cannot give the true sound of the Korean letters. But, it is used to help students using books when no audio is available.
We will need to repeat lessons until we learn to think the Korean sound when we see the Korean letters.*
Until the tips and notes are put into the mobile apps, I sign into Duolingo on the web to read them for the Alphabet lessons.
*I hope in future versions of Korean for English speakers, there will be a way to start using only the 한극 alphabet audio with words like spell, translate, from and alphabet.
