"Včera tady bylo jiné děvče."

Translation:Yesterday there was a different girl here.

hi there, why is it 'bylo' and not 'byla' as the sentence is about a girl?


Word "děvče" is grammatically neuter, not feminine. It is similar to "das Mädchen" in German which is also neuter.

Words in Czech can have unpredictable grammatical genders, you have to memorize them.
