Anybody else keep thinking it says "The man eats flesh"?
Lol sometimes I confuse "isst" for is (since it looks alike) and think of the sentence as "The man is meat."
Also "ist" and "isst" sound the same
I mean. Youre not wrong
I get the same issue
thats what she said
That's how I remember the word "meat" easily.
The picture said Fleisch is beef. And so I said "The man is eating beef" but I got it wrong. Duolingo wanted "meat" instead. Why?
To be specific, 'Rindfleisch' exclusively means 'beef'.
I also put need even though I wanted to put meat. German for meat sounds like flesh which makes it easy for me to remember
Beef* sorry I use Swype text on my phone
Were you supposed to choose the picture that depicted 'Fleisch'? Then it was likely because beef is meat but meat is not beef. The picture could just as well been showing pork, or some other kind of meat.
I seriously put in "the man is fresh", go me!
Why is it not "The man is eating meat"??
I wrote “Der Mann ist Fleisch“ and it was marked as correct. I seriously thought Duolingo was being weird, but now I know it wanted "isst".
"Man ist, was man isst." — German proverb — should neither be taken literally, nor with its verbs switched around, Dr. Lecter.
When speaking, how do you distinguish ist from isst? They sound the same to me. Is it just context clues? I wish they had a better word for eating /:
I laughed to hard at this. Listening to Rammstein enough and I'm thinking "The man eats flesh" from their song "Weissess Fleisch"
I said it exactly
Oh myy.. Does he now?
i thought it was the man is fresh
Flesh = meat
Thus it should be accepted as well.
The answers had two "man" but no "meat" so there was no way gor me to answer correctly.
How can i pronounce ' der mann ' ? I m always getting it wrong
I am a man and I am vegan ;)
the man eats or is eating. whats the difference!
In English 'the man eats meat' can have a different use,- he is not a vegetarian. This could be used when planning a menu for guests. Does this happen in German, please?
Well I typed neat accidentally, it drives me crazy!
Why can't the man is eating meat work?
I prefer sushi, it's straight and healthy lol.
