What's the difference between quyền and cuốn?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/amjain26

They are both classifiers that can be used when referring to anything that resembles books. They can be used interchangeably, so it doesn't matter which one you use. There is more information in the Tips & Notes Section for Classifiers 1.

If you go to the skill, just scroll to the bottom, and there should be a Tips & Notes Section.

This is only if you are doing it through the website. Unfortunately you can't get this through the app yet.

Why then does it not allow cuốn here? There are no tips on my interface

The question just before this one, Duo insisted on using "những cuốn sách", now here it is "những quyển sách". I understand the difference between quyển (northern Vietnamese) and cuốn (southern Vietnamese) - but if both are interchangeable, then please either (a) accept both answers or (b) write a hint if to use northern or southern Vietnamese at this point. This is so frustrating...

Yes, we do read books.

Why would it not be we read some books


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

We read some books = Chúng tôi đọc một vài quyển sách.
In this lesson, we've not introduced "some" in Vietnamese yet. So all the sentences wouldn't include "some".

Oh, I've been ahead so I got confuzzled. Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Michael775713

I put we read the books and am incorrect. I am really confuzzled. (Great new word btw)thanks

Why is "We are reading books". Wrong?
