I'm getting better at hearing the different endings, but I really only heard kvinde here - even on the slow speed. Any tips?
Try listening for the drawn out sound at the end, possibly with a glotal stop or nasal sound: [Kvinn'nn].
I apologize for the sloppy state of spoken Danish :)
That's okay. I accept your apology on behalf of the Danish language ;)
I'll keep listening and learning.
I translated it as: "the woman is drinking the beer?" Granted this isn't the most popular way of saying that sentence in English, but given a certain context it would be completely correct (i.e. repeating back to someone what they just told you in surprise...)
Anyway it was incorrect :(
For the answer, I typed, "Does the woman drink the beer?" I was marked incorrect, and the correct answer was listed as "Does the woman drink the beer?" Umm... isn't that what I wrote? Grr...
Is there a difference between the word lady and women? because every one in a while is tells me i am wrong and the correct word is lady.
Cant i translate it to 'Did the woman drink the beer?' Wouldn't have guessed it was "Does" how can you tell which one it will be?
