My bear doesn't always drink beer, but when he does, he prefers honey brown ale.
Please tell me I id not just read that. WHO CREATED DUOLINGO????? Cause I love them. :D
I hope that they include similar phrases. I laughed when I came to this one
Well as a Russian i see it as a serious problem , especially when he finishes his beers and starting to take mine ,even without my permission .
First things first -- I have a bear?! Second thing, I have an alcoholic bear?!?
I wish there were more funny sentences like this. It makes remembering easier.
You DON'T have a pet bear? I have a pet bear. Who doesn't have a bear? Although, mine does prefer malt liquor...
Haha! Lol, man. You should be, like, getting a TON of lingots for this! Everybody's got a water buffalo! Yours is fast and mine drinks wine.
Oh my god, veggie tales was my childhood! everybodys gottt a waterbuffalo, yours is fast but mine is slow oh where we get them I dunno but everybody's got a wate- aaa
Exactly! like the other funny one "Los parajos leen el diario". When I hear the funny ones and then read them it just lightens the mood of learning for me. makes me giggle.
um, yea, it is funny if you imagine two dudes eating the same strawberry together. Not so funny if they had their own strawberry, but no, they are two dudes eating one strawberry.
It's particularly funny if you increase the number of men. Ten men eating one tiny strawberry. You wonder just why they didn't get their own strawberries.
Those men stole my strawberry. It was going to be my lunch. grrr...grumble grumble. ):(
In Spanish, every thing is either male or female. Strawberry is considered female. So it is "Una", female version of "Un". If it was a male object, like an egg, then it would be "Un Huevo"
And normally if a word ends with "o" It is masculine and if it ends with "a" it is feminine excepting agua
Yes. Like Hermana means Sister and Hermano means brother. It is quite convenient actually.
careful! "EL agua está TIBIA" is it masculine or is it feminine? or maybe both?
"Agua" (water) is a feminine noun. But you say "el agua" because you can't put "la" before a word that starts with "a". But you do say "el agua está tibia". It may be confusing to someone learning Spanish, but it is what it is.
It also happens with "azúcar" (sugar). El azúcar es blanca. El azúcar es rica. Etc, etc.
Also "alma" (soul). El alma está perdida. Un alma perdida. Etc etc.
This applies to any FEMININE noun starting with "a".
PS: I'm a native Spanish speaker, don't pay attention to what level DuoLingo says I am :P
Mine does, too. He gets irascible when I'm not able to bring him any, though.
tus is only used when it's followed by a plural.
Tus medias = your stockings
tus sombreros = your hats
At last a sensible question ! I am all for a laugh but I am seriously trying to learn here not discuss bears drinking beer!!!!!
I could see bears in Romania looking for food when they found a can they instantly grab on it and imagine they surprise when a beer can explode in their mouth. I like such sentneces! :-)
This sentence is ridiculous! I thought the narrator was saying Todos beben cerveza, which would at least make sense.
I think they need to work a bit on the slowed down version. in the fast version, oso sounds fine but i played the slowed down version and it sounded like "coso" which i had no idea what that could mean but it wasn't the first time that a new word had been introduced to me in this sort of question so i just shrugged my shoulders and gave it my best guess. afterwards, i replayed it again and the normal pace it does sound like oso, but i swear i hear a "c" sound at the beginning of the oso in the slowed down version.
Clicked the audio couple of times just to verify what I was hearing was right. Funny.
Me too, couldn't believe it. But after all, my bear drinks beer all the time :-D
I find this sentence difficult to parse while listening to at fast speed as it is so nonsensical. When would someone's bear ever be drinking beer? Maybe Canada?
And I think that is the reason for putting such a sentence here so that your hearing is improved. It is nonsensical therefore you have to pay attention, you cannot just use a sentence that makes sense to you without hearing it. Its good practice actually.
Chicken eating rabbits, a beer drinkimg bear, and men sharing a strawberry. What an awesome planet the country of Duolinglandia is in!
Asa a recovering bear I dont appreciate all the frivolity about the journey the bear needs to commence. Will someone think of the cubs man!
And having a drunk BEAR might not be such a great idea! On the upside, he wouldn't have to worry about getting a bear belly!
This is either animal abuse or the most LGBT friendly statement on Duolingo.
Made Note: When camping at the park. Leave out left over burgers and dogs on the table and be sure to pour a beer or two in the dog bowl.
Hola...I am a spanish speaker, and I don't understand why that sentence is funny, can someone help me?
So that means if I got a party I can invite a bear to get drunk with us #AWESOME
I think the reason for putting such a sentence here is that it is nonsensical therefore you have to pay attention, you cannot just use a sentence that makes sense to you without hearing it. It will improve hearing. Its good practice actually.
Yeah but he only drinks socially after he eats his carne guisada. He used to have a real problem with the sauce. He went through court ordered A.A. After that bad DUI accident.
I think this doesn't make sense, I mean, bears don't really drink beer. But what if they do? This may be true...this mystery is illogical yet intriguing...and hilarious! Duolingo makes learning fun!
tu is your, and tus is plural your, so if its bears, you would say tus, but it's just one bear so its tu
Bears? strawberries? is there a logic to duolingo, why is the program obsessed with a near extinct species? Mind you if they keep drinking beer...
If the bear was in a Tolstoy novel, I suppose the bear would drink some vodka as well to get more drunk. Then, he'd tie himself to a police officer and throw himself and the officer into the river. ;-)
"Tu oso bebe cerveza."
(Great.. now I have to deal with someone's alcoholic bear. Thanks DuoLingo...)
Yep! They do. I poured a bottle of Colombian POKER in a bowl at the zoo in Bogotá and the bear loved it.
I thought my bear was the only one. It's great to know he's not alone!
This is so hard. I'm only doing it for extra credit. Google translate is no help at all when it comes to the speaking thingy lol
