There is actually a really good movie called A Time for Drunken Horses! From IMDb: "After their father dies, a family of five are forced to survive on their own in a Kurdish village on the border of Iran and Iraq, where even the horses are fed liquor in order to work."
2100 days, and an incredible track record of achievement!
Hats off to you, Knoxienne!
2102 now! You've been on here for over 5 years, with 10k+ on more than a couple languages! Tell me, how confidently would you be able to speak to a native?
100k+ in 3 languages* 10k+ in a dozen. Including both Portuguese (using Spanish Duo) and Spanish (using Portuguese) Is your goal to eventually complete every language, using every language available? How many can you actually speak/write fluently to a native?
I have! The little check mark is there, I promise. Thanks for the reminder, though! :)
What the hell mate. Your streak is over 1000?! Will there ever come a day you forget your good habits and just skip it for one day? :O I hope not.
Keep it up! My highest admiration you got.
sorry for being offtopic
Og nu er det 1938. Hvor godt taler du disse sprog efter benytte duolingo i 1938 dage?
I watched that movie several years ago. You're right, it is good. It's also super bleak, one of the bleakest films I've ever seen. But really good. :)
Yes, in all seriousness, I could see that being a traffic and safety violation (not to mention animal abuse) no different than an intoxicated driver or having a car on the road that is mechanically unfit or unsafe to drive.
Even more so if they put the meat of those drunken horses inside illegal burgers!
Only if it gets drunk, and it's not going to get drunk on a beer or two. Apparently even vets say it's not terrible for horses to drink alcohol since their gut has a weird process that we humans don't have. They can't get drunk unless you make them drink gallons and gallons of beer at once.
A goat I know highly recommends beer to horses, and sheep, and cows...and their keepers.
I know a few people who give their horses beer and they like it- Guinness especially lol.
I am guessing from this sentence that Danish often leaves out "that" (e.g., I know THAT your horse drinks wine), just like in English. Is that correct?
Whiskey for my men and beer for my horses... lol this is a popular song in America (the south where I am in particular)
Why doesn't "ved" end with "-er" like most other verbs in the present tense?
Yep irregular. Like "vet" in Swedish for example, that also means "to know"
Or "know" in English for that matter. You probably wouldn't say "I am knowing that your house drinks wine"
There have been some other cute sayings but this is the shirt I want. Someone please get on it!
Din/Dit/Dine is when you're speaking to one person, jeres is when you're speaking to more than one, or about something that a group owns if you're speaking to a person from that group. For example: Jeg elsker din hund = I love your dog (either it's only this person's dog or you don't know someone else also owns them)
Jeg elsker jeres hund = I love your dog (You might be speaking to the multiple people who own the dog or speaking someone from the family and know they are part of the family/it's come up in conversation.
Think of the difference like the difference between "your" and "y'all's" in colloquial southern US English
I am pretty sure I saw that particular horse on an episode of COPS. He was wasted...
My 7 year old knows more things that drink beer and wine than ever before thanks to duolingo! Hey i figure he needs to learn the secret of wine drinking horses someday. Might as well be today XD
one word in danish can use for many meaning and sentences.....how do i know that this word can be mean know!!!
"ved" here translates to "know", but if you check, for example, on google it translates to by. Is that a matter of where the word is occurring?
Ved as pronoun (by) is not the same as ved as verb (know). The same word is used in different functions. If you recognize the function, you know how to translate it. Google can't always help you with this.
Damn you discovered me man, please don't call the G men or the revenuers, I've got family and children to support
