I'm surprised they don't drink beer too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FionaOnDuoL

They probably do but don't tip.

Did you hear edderkoppen in normal speed, it sounds like gulping water


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cherylliz

They're thirsty

If I ever speak danish to a native speaker I will sound slow...

well at least the spider has better habits than just drinking beer with a bear


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/audrey.taylor29

thank god it isn't beer and wine this time...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dion6103

When I was first given this I put wine automatically without thinking because all the ducks are drinking it

Is Krabben supposed to sound kind of like Carton?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rashona

I typed 'krabben' into a few other language programs and some enunciated the /r/ more than others. Definitely requires a native speaker to help understand whether "carton", which we both heard, is a regional dialect thing or just a duolingo thing :-)

Crustaceans are just underwater spiders

Krabben not Katten...ohhhhhh. My ears haven't quite dialed into danish pronunciation quite yet.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Justymcdoogle

Ear dialation, have it all the time, right guys?

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Faeriery

They both drink water right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MargaretAn293875

My answer seem the same as yours now am its confusing me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tom568843

I translate it as "The crab and the spider are drinking water." but that is not accepted as correct.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Flam677779

First time he said vandet not vand! òó Heard it twice to be sure. òó


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Angela295024

Water?Not wine and beer?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SiwHelgesson

What is the difference in between drink water and are drinking water?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/paige31305

I made the hilarious mistake of saying

"The crab and the spider are drinking THE water"

How silly :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DianeEsbec1

A few questions ago the spider was drinking wine and beer with the bear. I figure he needs water to sober up.
