  5. "Mark it in your calendars!"

"Mark it in your calendars!"

Translation:Markiert es in euren Kalendern!

October 29, 2017



why is it not markieren Sie in Ihren kalan.. ?


I put the formal "Markieren Sie es in Ihren Kalendern" and it was marked as correct. If it was marked wrong for you, it may have been that you forgot the "es"

    Or in my case forgot to capitalise the i in ihren.


    Duo doesn't check punctuation at all, ever, and capitalization is punctuation. There's far too much variation, particularly in English, so they decided not to, early on.

    IMO it's a good idea to do it correctly, but it will never be why an answer was rejected.


    Warum dativ? Es zeigt eine Bewegung wie in "Stellen Sie es auf den Tisch"! Seltsam!


    Hier gibt es keine Bewegung, also dativ.

    Same here, like "Schreiben sie es auf das buch", with accusative.


    Isn't it masculine accusative? I don't think the dative is involved.

    I do not get this! I know it is dativ, because of the "in", and I know about the "n" at the end of the noun in dativ. but I don't know if this is the plural dativ and the difference with the masculine singular dativ.


    why not "Kalender Vormerken"


    Der Plural von Kalender ist 'die Kalender', Kalendern gibt es nicht


    when a plural noun is placed in dative case, it always gets an extra N at the end, (only if there wasn't one already, for example, the plural noun for Uebung is Uebungen, as you see, there's already a N at the end of it, so if we put this noun in the dative case, nothing changes but Kalender actually changes into Kalendern, as it's in the daive in this example
