minha irma e uma modelo... and the pop-up says model is masc. So is modelo both masc and fem? um modelo e uma modelo?
Yes. It is both masculine and feminine.
I'm guessing that "minha irmã é modelo" might also be correct if she were a professional model and did that for a living. I'm guessing that "é uma modelo" means that it's not her profession?
for me both are used for professions, but the preference is for ommitting the article.
Thanks. I've asked this same question on the Spanish forums and never got an answer. I wasn't sure if Duo was wrong or what. This same type of thing exists in French, Spanish and Portuguese.
yes...all these languages have the same background =)
I don't undertand why sometimes is "e" and other times is "é"
E = and
É = is
How do you pronounce "irmã"?
I = /ee/, ã = similar to the letter i in first
Doesn't exist the word "modela" for "irmã"?
Thanks a lot!
