Please can 'a fortnight' be added to the list of correct answers for 'two weeks'? This is acceptable British English...
It's still used pretty much in every English speaking country except for the states
In Australia it's totally normal, as in 'We're going away for the holidays, see you in a fortnight.'
in the audio it says "יום או יומיים" and the answer is "יומיים, שבועיים, חודשיים"
Yes, you're right. We have a problem with the audio in this skill (Dates and Time). Several of the sentences are mixed up. We will notify Duolingo and try to get this fixed soon. In the meantime I've disabled the audio on any sentences I know to be wrong.
Good thing you wrote "British date style". Otherwise we'd have to come up with a name for the 20th month of the year! :P
I would normally translate שבועיים as fortnight. But used 'two weeks' to fit with US English.
I'm not brave enough to try it, but would "a pair of" or "a couple of" be acceptable answers instead of "two"?
