Màu xanh lục = màu xanh lá = màu xanh lá cây ;)

Is the language inherently verbose? It takes 5 words here to say "green plates" and that seems to be a constant. I notice that some languages, like Korean, favor brevity, is Vietnamese the opposite?

no, I don't think it is a constant at all. Many, many times in these lessons they leave out entire words, that are "implied." It is hard to know what is "implied" when you didn't grow up with the language, but DUO does not seem to understand that fact! Like the sentence might only be three words in VN, but seven in English!

I don't know about Korean, but for instance in Spanish, you generally have a word-for-word translation. Not so at all in Vietnamese!
