vier Jungs und zwei Mädel was not accepted.
Jungs gegen Mädchens works for "Bibi and Tina"
So? Do I have to know "Bibi and Tina"?
Weswegen darf Mann nicht Knaben benutzen. Goethe und Gebrueder
Grimm haben keine Schwierigkeiten damit.
Why is "Knaben" not acceptable?
Because it is very old-fashioned and poetic; you won't encounter it in contemporary German.
Why is vier not capitalized?
Because it is a phrase and not a complete sentence. My guess anyway.
Warum nicht Buben
Und was ist falsch wenn ich vier Buben sag?
Why not junge
Junge means boy, as in one boy. BoyS = Jungen
why is "Zwo" not accepted? Is it too much of a regional/dialectal form for zwei? It's common Austria and in the south of Germany.
I'm unable to put the accents above any of the letter so its marking my answers incorrect!
If you're on desktop it should have a small choice of special letters near the text box. If you're on mobile you can press and hold the correlating letters to bring up special letters for different languages and choice the one you need.
"Vier mädchen und zwei jungen" would have been a better situation to be in.
Would it be acceptable to use "zwo" instead of "zwei"? Duolingo told me I could ;(
(It marked me wrong for using it)
Two girls, one cup ;)
4 boys vs two madchen, sounds fun, more fun than bar vs pferd.
Really, why? It's a place to learn languages...
My answer should be accepted
