Is 'det' only 'that' or is it also 'this'?
this means "dette" if i am right.
you are right
without grammar we are only memorizing some sentences without learning the necessary rules to speak
Grammer comes later... this is just to get started
why can't it be "this is a menu"?
This is a menu = dette er en menu
It is a menu = det er en menu
What is the difference between using "det" or "den" to say it/that?
I would have thought that det would go with et words and den with en words, but that does not seem to be the case.
"*) Depending on the grammatical gender of the subject. As a rule of thumb, use den for all living things, det for inanimate objects." -duolingo tips,but you are right,i can't understand too.or "den/det" aren't connected to articles and postfixes.
