  5. "Min dotter är en flicka."

"Min dotter är en flicka."

Translation:My daughter is a girl.

December 19, 2014



This sentence has a handful of deleted comments about the apparent obviousness of her being a girl. With this comment I just want to say that a daughter might well be an adult woman or even an old lady, so it's not as self-evident as one might think.


So in which age does flicka apply? Is a teenager a flicka too or is it only for children?


It usually has the same age range and meaning as the English "girl". And like "girl", it can be applied to just about any age in the right context.

    Min dotter är en flicka, men hon ser ut som en älg.


    Min dotter är en kvinna eller min dotter är en mamma ;)


    Controversial statement for 2019. (I'm kidding)


    The audio is broken on this for me. Every time is comes up there's no sound, even when I click the buttons.


    Unfortunately, we can't do anything about audio not working. :(


    I lose the audio all the time. I have to go out of the app and restart the phone, then go back in and start the lesson all over again.
