"It is two minutes after five."
Translation:Estas du minutoj post la kvina.
does the word "la" indicate that kvina here refers to time or is it merely a grammatical requirement. being an english language speaker i am always confused by how other languages use articles .
its the saddest story of all. 55x basics 1. 52x basics 2. 30x accusative. 40x plurals (that was the worst section for me, such confusion between feminine and masculine) 23 x da/de etc. i have basically been repeating everything i learnt upwards of 15 times a day for the last 5 days. and to be honest, i still keep thinking that hest (norwegian for horse) is the esperanto word for horse and not ĉevalo.
