  5. "Magister vester est peritus."

"Magister vester est peritus."

Translation:Your teacher is skilled.

August 31, 2019



I think the 'est' is not pronounced very clearly

Excuse me: ┬┐What is the difference between "teacher and "master"?


The "your" here is plural, and that should somehow be expected in translation.

Your (pl.)?


The number of "your" is contextual in English. If you are talking to one person, it is singular, two and it is plural. If you mean one of two people you are talking to, you'll be looking at him or her. You can, of course, for emphasis employ constructions like "both of you" or "all of you", but only when necessary for clarity, which is relatively rarely. The French manage with "vous", the Germans with "Sie" to represent either singular or plural. I think the very fact that you translate "vester" as "your" demonstrates that you understand that. If you had put "our" you'd have got a little message from our friend Duo.
