The dove loves wine!!!

Hello everybody I had to translate that in a Hebrew assignment: היונה אוהבת יין The meaning is: The dove loves wine!?! It is crazy, but also funny!!! Poor dove!!!

Hello and welcome! :-) Yes, some of the Duolingo sentences are a little weird; this helps us remember the sentences because they are so funny. In the case of languages that have a different script, the lessons also have to take into account the letters that have been taught so far, which limits the number of words that can be used. This is an additional force behind the creation of these unusual sentences.

This seems to be a dove that knows what is good -- only in moderation. The dove knows that, too, and it will in most cases prefer מים over יין


A Duolingo participant made a video of some of the weird sentences:

Another one is: אף אחד לא זוכר את העכביש הורוד. No one remembers the pink spider.
