In German das and der become dem in Dativ (while die becomes der). They use Dativ to express the place of something, being somewhere. So 'in the restaurant" is in dem Restaurant, which is often used as 'im'.
It's a below-the-belt sentence, ist and isst sound the very same even to a German.
Die Frau ist im Restaurant vs Die Frau geht ins Restaurant.
Is the im/ins difference because of movement vs stationary?
Seems that is because "im" translates as "in the" , so the "the" is there included in "im"
me too, I put "isst", because I can't hear very well, and it says CORRECT!!!!
so there was other questions where I answered "ist im Restaurant" to the "at the restaurant" bit and it said I was wrong because the answer to "i am eating at the restaurant" was "Ich esse im Restaurant", so.. in which case do we use the "ist"?
