Translation:Dogs are our good friends.
闺蜜 (guimi) means "best friends," but that's normally just when one or more of the people are female. If referring to best friends among males, you can say 哥儿们儿 (germer).
There is no word that suggests otherwise (a dog, the dog, this dog,....). So plural is implied.
This could just as easily be "The dog is our good friend." That's what I put and wasn't marked incorrect.
I wrote the same thing and it was marked incorrectly. It if not clear that the answer must be plural.
I know there are words for "this" and "that", but is there a word for "a" or "the"? I haven't come across one yet...
For'a dog', Afaik, you have to indicate it's a single one, so 一 + measure word, like 一个, or in the case of dogs 一只狗.
According to lesson "greeting 1" zùi" should be "the best", can someone explain what is the diffrent between sentences which written with "zùi" and "shì hào" ?
I think a translator would translate this as something like "Dogs are our best friends." or sth like "The dog is the human's/man's best friend." Is there a professional translator who could tell me what they think?
Because I think "Dogs are our good friends." is less used in English than what I suggested above and I believe that that's what they meant, as there is no other context given.
What's the matter?! I just wrote this sentence in a singular form!!!! Why not????
The answer ought to be "best friends", I don't think I've ever heard that expression used with "good friends". It sounds extremely unnatural.
I've definitely heard "good friends" before, and it has a different meaning from "best friend." It's common. I live in California but I'm certain I've heard the phrase in other media as well.
Learning a language isn’t about memorizing useful sentences. It’s aboht learning how the language works so you can form your own sentences. Even if the sentence is silly, it’s serving its purpose.
why say "dogs are our best friend"? dogs are not. I hate them! cats are da best. dogs, absolutely no.
I had "Dog is our best friend." but Dumb-Duo marked me wrong. Dumb-Duo had "The dog is our good friend." but technically, the "The" is unnecessary and "好朋友" is most likely to be translated to "Best friend" now a days.
Unless "Dog" is someone's name, you need to either say "a dog" or "the dog."
