I think 'the wall is coloured pink' would also be acceptable...

I tried that and got told "You need the article "the" here" with the answer suggested as "The wall is the colour pink", which a) doesn't sound natural and b) is at odds with the translation shown in the header for this page i.e. "The wall is pink" ... which sounds natural, but doesn't translate the χρώμα part of the Greek sentence, nor the έχει.

I agree, in English it is perfectly açeptable, but for some reason or another DL doesn't seem to like it: it marked me as incorrect just now when I tried that very answer! :-(}

    "The wall has a pink color"? Would that be correct (or even preferable) English?

    "The wall is pink" still apears on select tiles exercises.

    This really needs different tiles to select from as έχει does not translate to "is ". It should be it has.
