Is this a Nederlands way of saying "I wear shoes" or is it just a sentence making the (unexpected) statement "I am wearing a shoe."
Well, Duolingo is famous for "Ik ben een banaan!", so I don't think wearing one shoe is out of the ordinary.
Right, that's exactly the reason why using silly sentences so often is not helpful at all: one never knows whether it is one of them or just the way that particular thing is said in the language one is learning.
Nah, the plural is schoenen, Duolingo just likes to have a little fun with us - also, because the "een" is there, it can't be plural; regardless of whether schoen was also plural or not, the in stipulates the singular. C:
Note though, e.g. Een bril, is plural in English while singular in Dutch, so don't take that as a guaranteed rule.
This one can be confusing without a solid context.
"Ik draag een" spoken fast could sounds like "Ik draag geen" which means "I don't wear any".
a single shoe?... i geuss its true dutch are the most accepting people in the world... (or the weirdest)
The 'sch' realy differs from both 'sk' and 'sh'. It's a bit of a filthy way but i can't make more clear than to tell you that it resembles the sound that one makes in the throat before spitting in order to clean the throat. Try to make that sound (and leave the spitting behind ;-)) ) and you might 'catch' the dutch 'g'-sound ('sch'= 'sg' here). At first it will sounds much to harsh but gradually you'll be able to the soften the sound to the way the dutch use it. Good Luck!
Besides 'wearing', 'dragen' can mean 'bearing'. Unless one has a kind of handicap, even over here in NL, no one is wearing just one shoe, but one CAN 'bear' one shoe. Sounds ridiculous aswell but it is possible ... ;-))
I translated it as I am wearing ONE shoe and it was incorrect, is it wrong to say «one» instead of «a»?
'een' as 'one' is a number; 'een' as 'a(n)' is an article. Both are possible here so in principle your answer is correct. But 'een' (number) spoken has a long 'ee' sound like in 'way'; 'een' (article) sounds like 'un' like in 'sun'. The latter sound can be heard here so the article is ment, not the number.
