I'm having trouble understanding the context here. "A morning and an afternoon?" isn't a typical question in English. Can someone explain when this would be used in Czech?

It is likely just as odd in Czech as in English. Duo often does this. With as little vocabulary as we have been given, it is good to start putting them together, even if it doesn't make much sense.

    What's the difference between "i" and "a" when expressing "and"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

    "i" is more like "and also" "and ... as well" "and ... too".

    Why does the first "d" in "odpoledne" sound like a "t" whereas the second sounds like a "d"?

    Se the Tips and notes about pronunciation. And read about voicing assimilation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_phonology#Assimilation_of_voice.

    Please somebody help me remember "odpoledne" it is the weirdest word ever.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

    od = since, after

    noon = poledne...

    We can break it up even more:

    poledne is a combo of "půl" (half) and "den" (day) - i.e. midday

    Pronunciation of "a" is strange. It sounds here like an individual letter, not like in the sentence.

    That can happen, but we can't do anything and it is hardly a reason to disable the audio exercise.

    Please report ehen the audio makes it impossible to answer the audio exercise.

    I have been doing some exercises and some Audi are wrong...like you can hear different words than the ones you are supposed to hear. Thank you
