schlect is mine, but funf is pretty fun. by the way, EsaraMeza how did you get the umlaut over the u?
You can actually replace umlauts by adding 'e' after it. So fünf becames fuenf and süß becames suess. German grammar actually allowes that. Doesn't look as cool thou.
Look up the alt+ combinations. Press and hold down the alt key and press 0 2 2 8 for ä. 0 2 5 2 for ü. Use Google for the rest.
I have autohotkey, which requires a bit of work to install (you have to learn their syntax then add the hotkeys yourself), but lets me get ü with ctrl-shift-u, etc.
If someone wants, I can post the umlaut portion of the script here when I'm back on my computer.
I use the pre-installed US International keyboard layout on my PC. It gives you the umlauts, eszet, accute and grave accents (and others), and it's not too difficult to memorize the placement and key combos if you don't have key labels. It's a lot easier than copying/pasting and/or using ALT codes. I've used it so much that it's uncomfortable for me to use the standard Qwerty layout.
To get an umlaut, if you're on a mac you can hit option-u to get the two dots (¨) and then press the desired letter to add them to it (ü).
Wahrscheinlich here :D Sounds so cool, besides it was my first compound word to be learned
I can't figure out how to say this aloud so Duolingo will accept it. It seems to understand each number I say, but then when I'm done its interpretation changes from "Eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf" to "12345" and that's not accepted. This happens every time. It's maddening! Anyone else with the same issue?
I replace the last number with a random word like "Apfel" and it works (I get a "close!"). Kind of silly, but better than losing a heart. :P
Yeah, it does the same for me. Other number sequences I've had have done the same thing.
I am having the same problem. Funnily enough it doesn't accept the pronunciation of my German friend either
Just a note, German speakers will sometimes use "zwo" instead of "zwei" as to not confuse the word with the similar sounding "drei."
though, it may be a regional thing as to common that happens. my german friend said "zwo" is mostly only used for airway communication like when we use words for letters when spelling something out.
Apparently it doesn't accept numerical answers here... I put 12345, being lazy, and it had it as incorrect. Perhaps because I omitted commas?
12345 means Twelve thousand three hundred and forty five. I was lazy too and put 1,2,3,4,5 which it accepted but prefers spaces between the digits ie 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Duo seems to accept numbers within sentences
I think that it conflates words with digits. 12345 ~~ onetwothreefourfive. Too many typos to be accepted.
I thought Man was one... can anyone explain the difference between man and eins to me?
"Man" is a pronoun as in "One does not simply say that". "Eins" is the number as in "He is one year old".
These exercises where we need to repeat numbers does NOT work, it is very frustrating. Sort it out, please. Please.
Hier kommt die Sonne, sie ist der hellste Stern von Allem, (vier) hier kommt die Sonne
I spoke the five words correctly, but only the first went blue and the question was marked as false. I've noticed that in some spoken answers, you get marked wrong for speaking too quickly. Apparently here you get marked wrong for speaking too slowly. That's annoying.
Anyone else have a distorted slow speech button that prevents using the accent letters. Who do you contact, there is no category that addresses this issue.
Why are we still doing simple counting so late in the segment and not progressing. Surely people must have got it by now after hundreds of repetitions. No new expressions have been introduced for ages and we are still going on about cats and phone numbers add nauseum. There are more numbers beyond nineteen.
