"The kid wears the coat."

Translation:Đứa trẻ mang áo khoác.

August 24, 2016



In the tips and notes section, it is specifically mentioned that "mặc" is the only verb for wearing on the chest/body, and "mang" is used for legs/lower half. Are the two actually interchangeable?


They even say in the notes that on the site, they will only use đội and mặc to avoid confusion for learners.
