What's the difference between Bain and Baignoire?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sitesurf

"Le bain" can be several things but it usually refers to the water (or other liquid).

"La baignoire" is the container.

"la baignoire" is the bathtub. "le bain" is the bath in "have/take a bath", i.e. when you bathe.

years later and the audio has not been corrected!!

They have very limited options when it comes to the audio. Most likely they would have to replace the text-to-speech engine to correct the few errors that exist, and there's no guarantee that all the existing good ones would come out just as good as before.

"She is in the bath." should also be accepted as in many English-speaking countries, the word bathtub is now somewhat archaic.

Bath should be accepted. NOBODY says bathtub anymore

I feel like maybe all the [deleted] comments could probably be removed altogether. It's like 3/4 of the comment thread...

Came here to see what people were saying about the female voice pronunciation of this; for me it's tremendously fast and cut off. Sounds like "elekdonlbaignoi-"

I just can't see that. But might want to.
