Maybe I been doing to much Spanish, but why not 'The boys drink water?'
That would be de jongens
With the article "the" you single out a specific group of boys without it, it is more of a general statement
I put drinking water, why is this wrong
Did you put "The boys drinking water" or "The boys are drinking water"? The first is incorrect English and needs "are" to be correct like the second which is accepted.
I put "boys drinking water".
that's just wrong english then.
Why is it jongens and not jongenen?
-en seems to only be added to one syllable words. I'm still a beginner though so maybe I'm mistaken.
There’s no real concrete rules for plurals sadly, for example eieren has more that one syllable, as does verenigingen.
I typed guys - same as boys, c'mon give me a break :)
nope guys is not the same as boys. boys are young children guys are older.
