"मेरी बिल्ली चाय पीती है।"

Translation:My cat drinks tea.

July 19, 2018



My cat drinks Tabasco.. he loves it.


Maybe it's intentional or also a bug, when i use the word bank it often suggests abbreviations like: f. m. and obl


मेरी बिलली को कार की सवरी पसंद है! (Meree billee ko kar kee savaaree pasand he!) ;)

Yes, I've also seen this quite a bit. I suspect this is because Duolingo has never been very good at presenting grammatical gender. Something that has remained a major flaw. The creators of this course have obviously attempted to do a good job at working around that, but as a result Duolingo is picking these up as real words when randomly picking words to present. That would be my guess, anyway.


I had the text box to create my own translation freely. I enter chai, when I should have put tea.


This comment is more about Duolingo because in different languages they present sentences that do not make any sense. At least they should say that the cat drinks water, or the girl drinks tea. I don't know how this grammatically correct but out of touch with reality can be beneficial.


Hi Fjdv: My cat eats cheetos, there's probably one that would drink tea. Secondly, there have been plenty of times I've stared at a sentence here on Duolingo saying "That just doesn't make any sense!"... and then suddenly a way comes to me that I can make it make sense. And lastly, silly sentences are still teaching you real words and sentence structures.


My old cat would dip her paw in my sweet tea, so it's not an entirely absurd sentence for me.


My mother's cat will stick her face in a bowl of mashed potatoes. I don't eat at her house very often.


My cat really drinks hot tea and coffee! I'm not kidding


Sometimes these silly sentences stick in my brain better and help me remember the words and sentence constructions.


My cat smokes weed.


I'd laugh with you, except I can't because kids come here to learn. Any chance you could take this down for that reason? It's not just Our site. Thanks for considering it. Xx
