    Hi there, I would like a help on this sentence: Hvað er ætla Ewa og Daniel að gera? Is it correctly written? I thought it would be: Hvað ætla Ewa og Daniel að gera? Thanks, Elias

    I think you've combined two sentences into one ungrammatical sentence here.

    Hvað eru Ewa og Daniel að gera? - What are Ewa and Daniel doing?
    Hvað ætla Ewa og Daniel að gera? - What are Ewa and Daniel going to do?

    Ewa and Daniel are the characters from the Icelandic Online course, right?
