Two questions from Session 4, Lesson 13--Genitive Case
1. In the Repeat the phrases at the end of the exercise, one phrase is Konnen Sie das Projekt des Kollegen erledigen? (Umlaut doesn't work in commons). Why isn't it "das Projekt des Kolleges" since the tutorial said you add an "s" to the noun and the singular is Kollege?
2. Genitive of man is des Manns and genitive of male friend is des Freunds; however, I have other German resources and they state the genitive is des Mannes and des Freundes and that in the genitive you can add either an "s" or "es" to the male or neuter singular nouns, so now I'm confused because the program says you only add an "s"
By the way, I absolutely love this program!
