more or less it's like this:
to listen = deliberate (you can listen to music, another person, ...)
to hear = coincidential (you can hear a noise, a bird, a bang, ...)
to hear = hören
to listen to somebody = jemandem zuhören (but: to listen to music = Musik hören)
I missed the 'n' on my keyboard and it said "I hear a animal" was wrong.
cough Duo, it was a typo! Why not that instead?! cough
From my experience: If your typo is another existing word (e.g. "type" instead of "typo") it's considered wrong. If your typo is not an existing word and is not too wrong (e.g. "tyop" instead of "typo"), it's accepted and it tells you that there's a typo.
"a" wouldn't be a typo but considered wrong according to this logic.
It is acc., but "Tier" is neuter, so it's "ein". With a masculine noun "einen" would be used in acc.: "Ich höre einen Adler." = I hear an eagle.
the ö makes a more of what we would call a u sound in English. However you could remember it like you're tired of the day so like uuhhh. You could also look it up on google translate. They have a german speaking option if you type in a word
These are different conjugations of the verb "sein" (to be):
- du bist: you are, 2nd person singular
- wir sind: we are, 1st person plural
- sie/Sie sind: they/you [formal] are, 3rd person plural
Not exactly. An "animal" can be anything from a dog to a lion. A "beast" would mean something that lives out in the wild and is not domesticated. "Beast" is a more derogatory term than "animal." I'm also sure that there's a word in German for "beast", although I haven't encountered it yet.
Try saying "her a". As in, "I gave her a flower." Then say it again, holding the er a littlr longer and running it together with a. It's not exact, but it's close enough for folk music...
Well thank you I have Dyslexia so sometimes I mix things up. ☺ thanks for the clarification
