If you're expecting a bear to bring you beer, you may have had enough already.

I bear beer for the bear.
Jeg bærer øl til bjørnen

Whats the difference between hente and fa?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ycUvuSap

Hente is more like fetch: To get something from somewhere and bring it back. Få is more like receive.

Why is "Can the bear bring me a beer?" not correct? Bring is synonymous with fetch in this context.

It probably has to do with word order, not verb choice. In the original Danish phase, the beer is brought for you. They are semantically equivalent, but syntactically different.

‘Can the bear get me a beer?’ is accepted.

      The bear is too busy giving birth to a duck to bring you a beer.

      yes, except if it is reading a newspaper or giving birth somewhere ... these danish bears... good fellows, aren't they ?

      If Danish Bears can drink beer so they can get us a beer

      Please Duo, what is the difference between "hente" and "få" ??? When to use each one??


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hunter301107

      Nej, bjørnen vil spise dig


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/water_color

      Og det svar er: "nej, men hunden kan hente en kniv til dig"?
