An easy way to remember what "kind" means is the word kindergarten, which all English speakers understand.
Fun fact: Kindergarten is actually a German word, meaning 'childrengarden'.
and the english translation is kindergarden.
Not all english speakers know it. In Englanf Kindergarten is called 'preschool'
So, hij is pronounced [hej]. In Swedish, hej means ‘Hello’. Weird coincidence!
Why are we using "is" why not "ben" or "bent"
"ben" is if you say that YOU are the child. "bent" is if you are pointing at someone: you are a child. if you are using he she or it, you always have to use "is"
'ben' and 'is' both come from the same irregular verb 'zijn'. Zijn / to be is irregular in every language I know. to be = zijn; I am = ik ben; you are = jij bent, he is = hij is.
How does the 'een' sound in dutch?
I typed wrong words in Dutch but it said that I used English.
I don't understand... Hij is for she or he??
He. Zij and Ze are for she.
How is Een pronounced? Uuuhn or Aine?
When I wrote something in Dutch (my sentence was wrong) the app said I wrote in English but it was Dutch ^^
Ok so dualingo dutch is broken i just said hij blehblahbleh and apparently that means he is a child in dutch..
the answer appears to be right...but is considered wrong...please explain.
