You are both correct. However, being fluent in German, I know that you can say häuser to also mean buildings. If you need and example read Emil und die Detektive.
There certainly is some overlap, but the standard translations are 'Haus' = 'house', 'Gebäude' = 'building'.
People who are fluent or have advanced skills in a language are really helpful with programs like DuoLingo, especially for languages in beta. Feedback from those who already have a correct understanding of the language can be really helpful to course developers.
So.. this person owns more then one house, or its supposed to be "You own a house"?
tell that to the person i learned it from in a diferant coversation (i don't remember the person's name sorry)
I have a really hard time pronouncing the a(with umlaut) + u configuration. It sounds... sort of like an Australian accent that I cannot emulate. I had the same issue with lauft when I used Rosetta. Can someone provide a resource that would help me with this?
I think of punk music when the singers would shout "oy, oy, oy!", or of the Yiddish phrase "Oy vey!" eu and äu both make the same sound, so Deutsch, läuft, and Häuser all have that "oy" sound in them.
Wow. I think that actually does it. I guess it never occurred to me to add an "i" after the a. Eu was easy, as the first instance they use, neu, sounded exactly lik "noy". ;)
Thanks for your help!
Now I am wondering why in English "mouse" becomes "mice"; but "house" does not become "hice" :-)
Well for some reason English decided to adopt the -s plural for "house" but leave the germanic vowel change on "mice" (Maus/Mäuse). It could just as well have been "mouses" and "hice". I feel like a lot of things in English are kind of funny if you actually look at them. It's such a "Mischsprache" at this point! :D
Will there come new words if you reach a higher level in places 1 or do they just repeat exercises?
The verb "hassen" (to hate) looks different in the conjugation, having two 's'. If you hated houses it would be "Du hasst Häuser". "Hast" with one 's' is the du-form of "haben" (to have).
