Why isn't "Het mannen lezen" acceptable on this sentence?
All nouns in plural have the definite article "de" (as compared to nouns in singular that can have either "de" or "het) :-)
Why is it necessary to have an determiner before men? a previous sentence just started with meisjes with no De before it.
There's a definite article to show that they are particular men, not just any random group.
I don't really understand why it is wrong . Duolingo should maybe explain to us that why we got wrong + Duolingo maybe should update
I thought this was past tense in English rather than present tense. Perhaps better to explicitly indicate this context.
You're right, it could go both ways. Unfortunately, we can't specify the context, but we can accept a past tense answer in Dutch (i.e. "De mannen lazen.").
please, tell me what is a difference between mannen and man in dutch?
I am pretty sure from what i know is that mannen means men
