"These trees have oranges."
Translation:Diese Bäume haben Orangen.
It's actually "Bäume". The umlaut on the ä and the "e" at the end tell you it is plural.
Diese is plural because it ends with 'e'. Dieses would be used with neutral nouns, e.g. Dieses Kind, because it's Das Kind. Above the noun is Die Bäume, hence Diese.
dieses Mädchen = this girl
diese Mädchen = these girls
That's singular: eine Apfelsine = an orange.
In the plural, it would have to be Apfelsinen.
Does Orangen have a hard or soft 'g'? I think I've heard both in duolingo
It has the "zh" sound like the "s" in "leisure, measure, pleasure".
This is frustrating, I didnt learn Diese and severeal other words but all my practice questions have words that I haven't learned!
The dative plural of Baum -- "(to) trees".
For example, Vögel sitzen auf Bäumen. "Birds sit on trees." (with dative case after auf describing a location)
