Better houses have toilets

Don't ask for the Bathroom in my British house if you need a toilet. My bathroom has a bath in it, but no lavatory - that is in a separate room.

A bathroom in Britain is a room with a bath!

When written, one can know wether it is sie (they) or Sie (you polite) but how about in spoken; how does one know then wether it is sie or Sie?

By the context. It shouldn't be any harder than figuring out whether the English "you" is singular or plural based on context.

Have they a toilet ? Why is this not a possible answer ?

April 8, 2013


They = Haben sie
You = Haben Sie

"Sie" is capitalized in this sentence so it can only be translated as "you" (formal).

Thank You !

No problem. You may run into some issues once in a while too where Duo won't accept the sentence structure "Have you a toilet?" and demands "Do you have a toilet?". If that happens try not to get too angry and flag it with the report option "My answer should be accepted". For some reason that sentence structure seems to be hit or miss.

I was making a joke in english by capitalising the Y in You not normally capitalised in English ... I do find the German sentence structure a nightmare ! and that we should be having a discussion about "Haben Sie eine Toilette? Hysterically funny ... sorry

    Would 'the restroom' be an acceptable translation for 'die Toilette'?

    June 12, 2013


    should be. I said bathroom and it was counted correct.

    October 3, 2013


    Shouldn't it be "Habt Sie eine Toilette?" Why is it plural here?

    The correct conjugation for "Sie" is "haben." It does not matter whether you want singular or plural.

    I have = ich habe

    you have (singular, informal) = du hast

    he/she/it has = er/sie/es hat

    we have = wir haben

    you have (plural, informal) = ihr habt

    they have = sie haben

    you have (formal, either singular or plural) = Sie haben

    I learned Toilette in school but for Toilette vs Bad, is Bad exclusively for a bathroom that is also a washroom? Also, thank you for answering but I don't know how to return and reply to your response, I will only see the email. Thanks in advance
