"You drink milk and eat a sandwich."
Translation:Je drinkt melk en eet een boterham.
Je is when the focus is on the action not on the 'You' while Jij is when the focus is on the person doing the action(in this case the 'You'). It is confusing to anyone new to dutch(I too am new). I am just relying on what I have read elsewhere
I was going to ask the same thing. My understanding was that broodje also means sandwich.
Brood means bread. You kinda have at least some cheese inside to call it a boterham. I guess so, at least, I don't know...
Broodje also means sandwich, but refers specifically to the long sandwiches using a bread loaf cut in half (like a baguette). Boterham is a sandwich between two slices of bread.
Yeah. The subject used in this sentence (Je/Jij) is singular, so the verb/s used has to be singular as well. If the subject is changed to the plural form of 'you' (Jullie) you will have to use 'eten', to match the subject
• Je/Jij drinkt melk en eet een boterham.
• Jullie drinken melk en eten een boterham.
The conjugation of drinken is: ik drink, jij drinkt, u drinkt, hij/zij drinkt, wij/zij/jullie drinken.
Ive noticed the in some instances that some sentences use "het" and others "de" but it can mean the same but the app grades it as wrong why is that?
- Because we can't count it. For example, we can use "enn" before appel, banaan, meisje, .. because we can count it. But not before sap, wijn, geld, ... I think we will learn it in "telbare zelfstandige naamwoorden en ontelbare zelfstandige naamwoorden".
I would say it is like in english, you probably wouldn't say "I drink a milk"
Jullie is plural and jij is singular, right? Je is used when 'you' is not emphasized. Is je for both plural and singular or for singular use only?
Because I tried using 'drinken' instead of 'drinkt' and it marked me wrong. Have I made a wrong assumption or is there an error from correct possible answers?
en bij de vorige oefening was alleen U correct. Wat is het nu een lesje "formele gesprekken " of gewone omgangstaal. Wees een klein beetje consequent beste Duo
why is it incorrect to use "je" twice? as in "je drinkt melk en je eet een boterham"?
