Translation:She is playing with all the children except the boy.
Read the tips in the beginning of the lesson! One is "except" and the other is "without".
I don't know how lordoftherabbits is studying, but I do know that on the app (at least the Android version), the tips at the beginning of the lesson are nowhere to be found. It really sucks when you're doing your best and asking questions and people are yelling at you to read the tips that I personally didn't even know existed at first. Give people a little leeway is all I'm saying. Some of them are probably just neglecting the tips, but I'm sure many of them just can't get to a computer on a given day and have to make do with the app, as is so often the case with me.
You're right, I didn't take the app into consideration. They should add the tip there too. I wasn't "yelling" though, mine was a genuine and calm suggestion: it's just the usual problem with chat and the lack of emotions in written language. :-)
I wish there were tips at the beginning of each lesson in the app version. Unfortunately, there are not.
They're not in the norwegian part. If you switch to other languages, some of them have it. For instance, learning spanish as an english speaker has them. It should be added to all languages, though (it's not so difficult to implement, as it's already there somewhere)
Am I over sensitive or is there a slight streak of misanthropy in several of these sentences?
I typed in "other than the boy" instead of "except" just because of common English use... I don't think it's strictly incorrect, maybe it's worth adding?
Maybe they can't add all the possibilities. I would more naturally say 'except for the boy"
He's just a poor boy from a poor family and she is sparing his life from this monstrosity
This is the first time I've been penalised for writing 'the boy' instead of 'the lad' lad'. I didn't see this colloquialism discussed in the lesson....
