I believe because your answer indicates a specific milk (e.g. the milk that was left for her on the table) as opposed to general milk as the question is indicating (e.g. she did not drink any milk at all)


There is no question. It is a statement. Are you saying that there is something in the sentence that requires it to be a general statement (I.e. that Julia did not drink milk ever in the past, but now has come to drink it)? Up to now we had been given to understand that Hindi has nothing like a definite article, so this sentence could mean she did drink the specific milk, a sentence that is far more likely to occur in real life.


Does anyone know if there will be more Hindi lessons? I finished all of them, but I feel I don't know enough Hindi do watch a Hindi film and understand it all. I sure hope there will be more lessons with lots more vocabulary.


Same, but I'm not sure if they will or not. You could anyways still learn Hindi words that haven't been mentioned here on apps such as drops: learn Hindi, making a research of things you'd like to learn in Hindi and put them into an app to memorize things called> Quizlet so you can learn them and memorize them, and by your own on youtube videos from hindipod101 they have helped a lot, and if you're willing to pay $1 to get in their course you could as well.

But honestly you'll only learn if you put hindi in practice, surround yourself with it, listen to Indian songs, text people in Hindi, talk to yourself in Hindi, and so on until you can achieve where you'd like to be.


I've found this site really helpful, especially for grammar explanations that Duolingo doesn't address http://www.learning-hindi.com/

This is the first time I have seen the English dropdown literally come up blank. (Hover over ने.)


I also had this issue. Can anyone explain what it's doing here?


Looks like ने points to the Past Tense but cannot be translated as a separate word and should be combined with a noun/person: मैं ने - I (in past)


www.hindi-learning.com website explains it very well.

1- ने comes after the subject if the verb is TRANSITIVE which means the verb may have an object. (For example: taking something, eating something, buying something etc.)

2- Verb suffix changes according to the object, not the subject.

3- ने makes the subject oblique form except मैं

Note: But it's better to learn it from the website.


Why 'Julia did not drink the milk?' is incorrect for Duo? How can we differentiate between 'Julia did not drink the milk' and 'Julia did not drink milk' in the Hindi sentence. A response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


There is no difference in writing. There are context clues, but they really mean the same thing. Duolingo should accept 'the milk'.


(Disclaimer: I am neither fluent nor an expert.)

I don't think you can differentiate between "milk" and "the milk" in Hindi except by context clues. As far as I know Hindi doesn't have a definite article. My Hindi-speaking friends certainly have a ridiculous time trying to figure out when to use "the" in English, which also makes me think it's not something they're used to differentiating in Hindi.


You would indicate "the milk" with "vah doodh"


Julia ne dud nahi pe, why it is piya, piya is masculine singular, very confusing pi and piya, please clarify this....


What is difference between "Julia did not drink the milk" and "Julia did not drink milk"


The milk (hindi - vah doodh) indicates a specific milk. (E.g. the milk that was left out overnight) Just milk (doodh) indicates any milk. (E.g. i did not drink milk today because it had spoilt)


Julia did not drink the milk is also correct but it was not accepted


Ok thank you!! Was confusing con cow who is femenine.


Why is 'Julia didn't drink milk' not accepted?


"the milk" was refused.


My question is different. Both "Julya" and " milk " are femenine...so why PIYA? (which is masculine?)


Sorry, milk is masculine, hence पिया
