"When do we meet?"
Translation:När ses vi?
I wrote "När möter vi?" and it says no. Instead it corrects me to write "När möts vi?". Can someone explain me why tack?
möter needs an object, so you have to say whom you're meeting.
möts has reciprocal meaning, meaning that it implies that we meet each other. So möts in turn cannot have an object.
Jag möter honom 'I'm meeting him' or Vi möts 'We meet'.
Se in the otherwise passive form ses becomes reciprocal and means ’each other’. So it literally means ’When do we see each other?’ which is used for ’When do we meet?’ in Swedish.
I got it later but this was the first sentence in the lesson. So you cannot use the word träffas at all?
When you use ska, it means shall implying future tense. när ska vi träffa translate to when WILL we meet instead of when do we meet.
