"The women are eating the apple."

Translation:Kvinderne spiser æblet.

August 26, 2014



is there any method to remembering when to say kvinde, kvinder and kvinderne? same for pige, mand and dreng


I imagine two women biting on a same apple from opposite sides... it helps me learn


I see using 'er' here is not required, could someone explain why?


I think it's because the 'is' in English is part of the continuous tense, and the continuous tense is not used in Danish. The 'is' is the auxiliary verb here, and not the main verb. The Danish present tense (e.g.: Han spiser) can be translated as both 'he is eating' and 'he eats'.
