"Jeg har drukket øl siden jeg var seksten."

Translation:I have drunk beer since I was sixteen.

The more natural "I've been drinking..." was accepted, for those curious.

Isn't the word "seksten" usually pronounced differently (like "s-aah-ee-sten")?

The audio is wrong. Please report it together.

I was lazy and wrote the number 16 instead of spelling it out and it was marked wrong. :( Darn it.

"Have drank" is also acceptable, even if it isn't common. Please see: http://grammarist.com/usage/drink-drank-drunk/

I got marked incorrect for using drank and not drunk

Same here. In SW US "have drank" is also commonly said.

It does not accept "drank." As someone born and raised in the NE USA, "have drank" is by far the more common usage.

Is the sequence of tenses practically the same in Danish than in English or are there some differences ?

Would anyone like to comment on the TTS on this sentence? It seems to me like 'drukket øl siden' is being compressed very unnaturally close together

May 10, 2016


Compressed ? In what kind of way ?

Apologies for my cryptic wording. The words are pronounced unusually close together. I am wondering if this is considered 'natural' at all.

I have found the pronunciations on Forvo to be much more sensible (ie, following the syllables) than those of the synthetic voice here.

Forvo? Oh my gosh, I hadn't heard of it before. That's useful in so many languages for me! I didn't know it existed! Thanks. That is extremely helpful! You have no idea how helpful that is! :)

Here in America its illegal to drink until twenty one. This can sometimes be confusing for visitors.

    In Denmark we have no drinking age, although you have to be 16 to buy weak alcohols (beer, cider, wine etc.) and 18 to buy stronger alcohol beverages (liquor, vodka).

    Meanwhile in America, 19 year-old me wasn't even allowed to touch a sealed bottle of red wine. That gave us some good laughs.
