Could anyone please explain why is this now 'een student'? In other lessons it was 'Saskia is studente', I'd thought. Does it change when first person?
A student can be either male or female, a studente is a woman.
Apologies, I meant why is there an 'een' here? all of the rest of the occupation type sentences seem to just say 'So-and-so is dokter' without the article.
The article is optional in those cases.
Ah ok thanks! From the lessons it seems no article is generally preferred, is that the case? Does it add some emphasis or truly doesn't matter?
It doesn't matter, it's usually a case of personal preference.
