I preffer they'd drink a beer then fight a bear :( Or maybe both them and the bear can drink a beer.
Yeah the difference between the two "een"s is very subtle. I got it wrong too.
her pronunciation is terrible, mostly i cannot understand her. Now i listened this sentence many times, but i couldnt hear the letter 'b', and had no idea, against 'what' is there.
I reported my sentence which I think would be correct - "Two elephants against a bear".
Protip, don't give an Lingot away until you have actually posted the story you just wrote.
That's a fair point. It's better to not give too much slack while learning. Even more so when één and een are so similar. So I'm mostly just going to troll here.
Okay, so where we got a/an from was the old English one. When you're talking about a single thing, you will almost always use 'a'. You'd only use one to really imply you have one of something. You'd be more likely to toss in an 'only'.
Anyway, have an Lingot for your wasted time.
The purpose of this exercise is to learn the numbers, not the indefinite articles. So, sorry, but you're wrong ;-)
The first thing I thought was "Why are the elephants against a beer?"
Then I payed more attention.
Shouldn't it accept "Two elephants to one bear"? When I hovered my mouse above the word "tegen" it listed "to" as an option, but Duo marked it incorrect when I answered with that.
