"Ben jij langzaam? Ja, ik ben een langzame jongen."

Translation:Are you slow? Yes, I am a slow boy.

Does this sentence also suggest mental slowness in Dutch?

Why is ben jij langzaam? I thought it should always be Bent jij?

Because it is before the "Jij", so it loses the T. This rule only applies for "Jij" and "Je" (not for "U")!

When it is a question, the -t is gone. Like Jij bent-Ben jij, jij hebt-heb je

as far I kow when you dont use een than any adjective words should have -e. but if you use een then adjective woes not get an -e to end of them. Why the correct answer Ik ben een langzamme jongen instead of Ik ben enn langzaam jongen

if the first sentence was "Jij zijn" instead of "Ben jij" would "langzaam" get the e ending?

Could you rephrase that, because at the moment it is not clear to me what you are asking.

What I do know is that "Jij zijn" is not possible in Dutch. In case you are asking what if the first sentence was not a question. It would still be langzaam

  • Jij/Je/U bent langzaam
  • Jullie zijn langzaam

Ja, ik ben een langzame ouder

I wrote "bent jij" and it told me it's supposed to be "ben jij". Why? Thought "ben" was for "ik"
