"du bist eine Frau"


That would be a better translation at this point in the course.

The default or "best" translation uses the polite pronoun Sie which has not been taught at this point. It comes from the Pearson course, who don't follow our course design.

Their sentences are supposed to be removed soon, but I don't know when.

Until then, I apologise for the confusion.
