Also "The girl is writing."

Yep, and we also accept that answer.

In my opinion the audio is odd and there is unnecessary lag at the begining

Please report audio issues with the button in the lesson, not in the sentence discussion.

The audio is very unsatisfactory... I had to strain to make out the Latin.

Which is the right answer? "The girl writes" or "The girl is writing". Bcz i wrote the latter one and it said it's correct.

Puella scrībit.

Is "the" always added implied without it being present?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trofaste

Latin doesn't use articles, so without context either "a" or "the" can be used, provided it fits the sentence.

It sounds like,"Puella script".

Is the pronunciation of b /b/ or /v/ ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaDol4

It sounds like puella studet to me... No? Just me

It's like in Spanish, escribir

It's like in Spanish, escribir

Yes – Spanish is a descendant of Latin.

So there is no "the"?
