Translation:my name

August 4, 2018



To "My name is ---" would you say "pongwIj ---"?


jdmcowan 'oH pongwIj'e'. You could also say, pongwIj 'oH jdmcowan'e', but in this unit we only demonstrates it with the name first. The grammar involved is a little complicated and so a full explanation is not given until a later unit. This unit is only intended to give you some phrases you can use right away before we start getting into the details of the grammar.

Since Duolingo has hidden the Tips & Notes I want to make sure you know about them and where to find them. If you have not yet read the Tips & Notes, I would like to ask that you review those so we don’t have to repeat too much of the information that we have explained there.

If you are doing the course on iOS or Android, you cannot currently access the Tips & Notes through the app. To access the Tips & Notes, you will have to access the course using a web browser at https://www.duolingo.com/. You can still do it on your mobile device, but you will have to use the web browser instead of the app (or you can do it from a computer). When you click on a Skill, it will expand to reveal a Start button, a key, and a light bulb.

If you click on the light bulb it will reveal the Tips & Notes and give you a detailed explanation of the grammar that is introduced in that Skill. If you have questions after reading the Tips & Notes for any Skills, then please return to the forum to ask your question, explaining what you didn’t understand or what seems contradictory to you.


I think it would be easyer if they all had speakers so i could read it and speak it


For this course, audio is provided by volunteers recording their own voice and adding it to the course -- something which has to be done sentence by sentence, in the volunteers' free time.

So while we hope to add audio step by step to as many sentences as possible, it will take a while. Please be patient.
