Translation:The Australian child is not climbing down to the ground, but is falling down.
I think I'm about to lose my mind with this lesson! The guessing! I feel like I understand the meanings but the answers accepted are so limited, sometimes re/ra is onto, sometimes to, az ablakon is sometimes through the window, sometimes out the window. I've attempted about five sentences over and over and just can't seem to guess which version will be accepted!
"crawling" vertically sounds odd to me for a child, though.
Although I suppose the child might be crawling down a slight slope, which lets you crawl (mostly horizontally) while moving down (vertical component of movement).
But he is neither crawling nor climbing, he is falling, so a slight slope does not fit.
I would assume that he lost grip on a ladder or a rope or a tree, and we now have to witness his, depending on height, possibly hard impact.
And who can explane why here must be present continous and not simple present tense.That must be the biggest sophist of whole Duolingo I will congratulate him
------- if you're looking at the kid and commenting to your neighbor, it's happening right now. if it's happening right now, it's present progressive (your continuous ). if he has already fallen onto the ground, it's definitely simple past (or compound past - as i've just used, "has fallen" ... ) . if the kid keeps climbing up and falling down, maybe for the past year , you can say he falls. you might even add, "over and over " . . .
