i keep having this mistake... i cant make diference between the sound of ihr and er, help?
pronounce "ihr" like "ear", and "er" like "air"
I've tried that and it doesn't work, I still keep getting it wrong!!
Also remember that "er" means "he" so it would not be used to indicate possession as in this sentence. That usually works for me when I can't decipher the pronunciation. Good luck.
thanks! ill try
Why not "My car is white and your car is red"?
'your car' would be 'Euer Auto.' Ihr/e when used as a possive pronoun means either hers or theirs.
it could be, but it would be your (formal) car
Ihr would have to be capitalized for you (formal).
Because lowercase ihr can only mean "her" or "their".
Uppercase Ihr would be "your".
'their car' is unfortunately not accepted. Could you please fix it?
It's not "our" sentence - report it, please, and hope that the Pearson editors fix it.
Why am I hearing a "g" sound at the start of "rot", which is why I wrote "groß"!!
The German "R" is pronounced quite a long way back towards the throat (it is what is called an "uvular rhotic"). It might be that you are mistaking that sound for an English "G".
It would be ' sein Auto' if it was his car. ' Er Auto' would be translated as ' he car'.
