Ei is a neuter word and it is in Akkusativ as it is the object of the sentence. In Akkusativ neuter words receive "ein".
The gender of words in German seems to be something you can only learn through experience, memorization, and practice!
This is Deutsch .. None English based language... If a word has "an" in english it doesnt mean that it should be translated to einen.... an =/= einen
I ate an egg would be past tense, and sentences in past tense are written differently.
What differents between ein and 1 ? Deulingo write ich esse ein Ei. This mean ( I eat an egg ) But it says ( I eat 1 egg ) !!!!!!!!!!!!!
- 'ein' = masculine or neuter
- 'eine' = feminine
- 'einen' = for the masculine accusative case; this sentence is in accusative, so if 'Ei' were masculine, it would be 'einen'.
Is this something you can say in a restaurant to mean "I'll have an egg" for example?

Pls explain why should we use ein in this statement ? For instance Ich trinke Wasser or Ich trinke Beer is normal way to say. We should we use ein explicitly here ? Can someone help me on this ?
I'm just annoyed that I usually get any questions involving a microphone wrong because Duolingo doesn't recognize my accent about 90% of the time
