I was glad a few sentences back that I am not a vegetable but my happiness was short lived as I found out that I am a fish
Is this the hindi course equivalent of the famous spanish course yo soy un pinguino?
Duolingo promotes inclusiveness and diversity...across species.
Someone having an identity crisis or something?
And you are the sea.
Lol, nice one... Like a funny romance song lyrics...
"I am Nemo. आपसे मिलकर अच्छा लगा।"
I like this sentence. I do not know why :D
If you were playing charades and they could not guess what you were and if you were a fish you would say
"मैं एक मछली हूँ।" or "मैं एक मछली थी"
I am a Libra ;)
I am a Aries.
What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun, and I am a fish.
Okay there, Arnold Rimmer.
tbh i don't see how this would be useful in everyday life, unless you're impersonating a fish for some reason....
It's to test your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. The weirder the sentence, the harder it is to just get by by guessing from context.
If you were playing charades and they could not guess what you were and if you were a fish you would say "मैं एक मछली हूँ।" or "मैं एक मछली थी"

But not the only fish in the sea.

I wonder if it's Kanye West
Context is helpful in constructing memories and learning language. Context is the reason you know your first language, so these illogical sentences should not be used in language learning.
Sometimes translating illogical sentences helps check your understanding of the specific words and grammar. It forces you to show that you understand the system and aren't using logic to fill in the gaps. (I'm an ESL teacher, btw.)
Not a useful phrase
If this were a phrasebook app, that'd be a relevant criticism.
As it is, it doesn't really matter what the specific words are in a sentence, whether a noun matches the verb well, etc., as long as they're real words and the grammar is correct.
I completely agree. I am trying to learn a language, not a collection of phrases.
