I am from the southern United States. We use a word for "ihr" here in South Carolina. It's called "Ya'll" = You All. Think of "ihr" as "you all"
When learning the translation for Ihr in this case I always trained myself to type You all see the apple instead of just you. In english we might just you or ya'll like I do. Du of course just means singular you. Like "I am replying to you." Hope that helps.
du = you (singular, informal)
ihr = you (plural, informal)
Sie = you (singular and plural, formal)
How comes I'd been led to believe that ihr was "informal"?? I made a note of it from Duo after being told that!
It is informal. I'm not sure what you're trying to say.
Here's a table showing the pronouns.
'catch' is one of the optional meaning given by mouse-over 'siehst', so why a translation of 'you catch the apple' is not right?
Pronunciation of den is terrible. I had to listen seversl times, then guess what it was. It sounds like "deane".
I have a pen...........I have a pineapple............PINEAPPLE PEN!!!!!!!!!!!
So for "see" is this right? Ich sehe Du siehst Ihr seht Er, Sie, Es seht Wir sehen
Your app are extremely anoying! It freezes up all the time. If this persist ill just have to delete it. It started when someone started " following" me. Every lessen about the third fease it freeze up. Why does it do that
Why not "Ich sehe der Apfel?" How can you tell if the noun is feminine or masculine?
Genders: You have to learn the gender with the noun. If you mouse over the noun, you will get a definition and at the bottom, the gender. This doesn't always work as not all nouns have been updated, so you may have to look the gender up in a dictionary.
Why not "Ich sehe der Apfel"?
1) They asked for "You see the apple". Ich = I. du, Sie, ihr = you (informal singular), you (formal singular and plural), you (informal plural)
2) Apfel is a masculine noun in the accusative case (in this sentence). Der = masculine nominative (among others). Den = masculine accusative (among others).

Why the sentence "You see the apple" is translated "Du siehst der Apfel" and in this listening task the solution is "Du siehst den Apfel" with masculine accusative?
Masculine Feminine Neuter Plural
Nominative -er -e -es -e
Accusative -en -e -es -e
Genitive -es -er -es -er
Dative -em -er -em -en
The German articles are a pain to learn; this list is useful to keep in the back of your head when you have such a problem (definite articles). Also you need to master the use of German cases in order for everything to fit. http://german.about.com/library/blcase_sum.htm
I suggest you take a look over these grammar rules and then just carry on practicing; eventually it will just come natural.
i see only the translation with the accusative case, what do you mean ?
