천천하다 – to be slow
~히 – -ly ending
천천히 – slowly
하다 – do
~십시오 – Imperative mood (Please)
So, you can also translate it as "Do it slowly"
Brilliant breakdown of the word. Thank you
Thank you !
I wrote "Go slowly." and it got accepted but it left an erotic scenario on my mind. I thought Duo was being kinky but it turns out be just my dirty brain. hahahahahahaha
Well ...im not alone
this is also confusing because the same sentence has other excercises saying "천천히 오십시요" is the translation of take your time.
directly translated 천천히 하십시오 could be "do it slowly" and 천천히 오십시오 could be "come slowly." so both can mean take your time.. sorry if this is a bit confusing i tried my best to break it down
This is translated really weirdly because it's in the formal. It should be something more like "please take your time" or "please proceed slowly".
Take your time doing the question??????
I don't think so. This is more like it....
DO IT NOW!!!!!!
Me to that is a stressed emoji. ;)
But I looooove Duolingo
Thank you, duo. I will.
Is this 십시오 ending the same as 세요 just more formal?
Yeah.... it's 합니다 -> 하십시오
And 하다 -> 하세요
So it's 오세요 & 오십시오
"Take it slowly" was not correct. Is it a weird thing to say in English, or is it really a wrong translation?
why did I write it as " please speak slowly"?
I don't understand why that sentence means "take your time"
I answered please be slowly, why do i get wrong?
skz... my pace
The answer is weird... ^^,
I agree. That was a really unnatural English sentence. I think the best English translation here would just be "Please slow down"
