Elsewhere you tell us to use 'một' when we see 'a'. Can you be consistent please.

What is the difference between "mặc", "đội" and "mang". Why isn't "mặc" accepted here? I thought they were synonyms.

Mang is for footwear like socks and shoes. Đội is used for clothing on your head like hats. Mặc is used for clothing on your torso and leg. Here's a link that I found that you might find useful http://vietnameseconversation.blogspot.com/2015/09/how-to-say-to-wear-in-vietnamese.html There's more than just mậc, mang and đội.

If you still happen to be wondering, the distinction is made in the hints and tips of the lesson, which is available on desktop Duolingo

Not at all, they are only ecceptionally interchangeable

I think "She does not wear hats" would be a more natural translation to english. But how would i say, "she is not wearing a hat"? - cô ấy không đang đội một cái mũ"? or would it be more natural to leave out the 'một cái'

Or do i need to wait until a later module to learn about state?

This variation and omission of previously encouraged word use is confusing.

How come there's no word to represent "wearing/wear"?

May 26, 2018


đội = wear (head)

June 30, 2018


You missed a word. Cô ấy không đội mũ.

my translation: Co ây không đôi một mữ

So what is wrong?

June 23, 2019


một cái mũ, không mữ
