Is the "l" in "spielen" silent?
Not really but colloquially it can sound that way.
Why cant i have "max and anna play"? It seems to work both ways on other similar sentences.
Max, Anna, Jonas all are the main characters of german series Dark... duolingo makes it fun for me :)
I spelled 'Max' as 'Maks' (as in short for Maksim) and i was marked wrong.
Is it good German not to pronounce the L?
Oh I know that game!
'Max und anna sind spielen' is it wrong?
Yes. An English the are in our playing is what's called a helping verb. In a lot of non-english language is the helping verb is not needed so "are playing" is just "spielen"
They were playing you say
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I spelled the verb as speilt and it says I'm using english.
