"You drink water."
Translation:Jij drinkt water.
This could help but honestly, I'm pretty confused as well: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/3734337/Grammar-Jij-vs-Je-Zij-vs-Ze-Wij-vs-We
It depends one the way the sentence is used/said if you is the subject, specified or stressed then jeje would be used but if you isnt the subject of the sentence then je is used.
You seem like coming from the war with all these medals. Kudos to you General!
Never. U is the polite form of jij/je where as jullie is used for 'you' (plural)
I didn't know you could have 'U' for 'you. Are the words 'U' and 'Je' interchangeable? ☺
i always got confused on that drinkt and drinken part.. also the je and jullie... :(
Drinkt is used when "You" drinks, "He" drinks, "she" drinks and "it" drinks. Drinken is when "we"drink,"you"(plural) drink and"they" drink . Je is singular 'you'. And jullie is for plural 'you'.
'Ik drink' - 'I drink'
'Jij drinkt' - 'You drink'
'Hij/zij/het' drinkt - 'He/she/it drinks'
'Wij drinken' - 'We drink'
'Jullie drinken' - 'You drink'
'Zij drinken' - 'They drink'
Generally zij would be used for they, but Zij and Ze can be interchanged for "she" depending on context.
Why does Zij mean 'they' and 'she'? And when do you know when to use it?
Think of the English word deer. It's the same for singular and plural, and you need to look at the verb to tell which it is. (The deer is vs. The deer are) We don't think about it in English, but we do in a new language. Eventually it will become second nature to notice the verb.
I thought "English" U :) but in real yes "U" is used as pronoun in place of Jullie, jij or je...awesome to know.
it's difficult to know which form of you is being asked for in these questions, when "you drink the water" and "you eat the rice" sound exactly the same in english, but duo is asking for jij and jullie without any sort of implication of which to use? (not to mention that in casual vernacular english, there's often a clarifying term along with the plural you ("all", "guys", etc) to indicate the plurality)
Ahh! Someone help! What are these other things! Plurals? Because de became het and Jij became Jullie
I think de is male/female and het is neutral? (I might be wrong here but I've been listening to an audible book that said something like that) jullie is for you the plural. I don't know when to use je or jij though!
Jullie isn't right here cause it's more then one, how can they say it's also right, then it sould be " drinken" more then one... Hurf.! It's a good thing I already know this.
