I know it in AE as a "jumpsuit" or "onesie". But it has no place in this sentence. It's gone now. Thanks for the feedback. You send so much and it's always helpful and very much appreciated.

The word blouse is quite old fashioned in English, at least here in the UK. It's not a word I've ever used to be honest! Does the Greek basically mean a long-sleeve top??

Blouse is commonly used in the UK, only for women's shirts - note the buttons are on different sides ;-) ! However, although I have not met a picture definition yet of this word in Duolingo, I did see η μπλούζα with a picture of a T-shirt... I've not learned T-shirt yet... is it the same in Greek?

AJ72! μπλούζα from Fr. blouse is something which covers the upper part of the body. Both for men and women. (Άσπρη) μπλούζα is the coat which nurses and doctors wear. See

T-shirt is apparently the same word in Gr. and is written with the Latin alphabet. Maybe that is why I cannot find it in any Gr. dictionary. See https://www.google.gr/search?q=t-shirt&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=el-gr&client=safari&dlnr=1&sei=WgIqW7_MCIifgAaU9K

I used to live in London not even 10 yrs ago and blouse was used to refer to a shirt for women or girls. Things may have changed a lot or you might just lack vocabulary.

when you look at pictures on Internet both En blouses and Gr μπλούζες are shirts , but shirts without buttons. In Gr there are μπλούζες με λαιμόκοψη ( I suppose they open in a cirrcle around the neck) , μλούζες με βε (with a vee) and how nice μπλούζες με χαμόγελο (with a smile)

Also the coat which a doctor wears is called (άσπρη) μπλούζα

Thank you for your input. Yes, we also have "shirt" as an accepted translation.

Shouldn't the answer read "The girl is wearing a blouse", rather than "The girl is wearing one blouse"?

Thank you, it has been edited to "The girl is wearing a blouse."

As D_.. says above both are correct. These sentences without context can have different interpretations.

"Wears" or "is wearing"? Can you tell them apart?

Greek does not differentiate between "wears" and "is wearing" as the English does.

But the translation in this case doesnt accept "wears" in this example. It should accept both "wears" and "is wearing".

Both are included in the alternative translations. We have started asking for screenshots so that we can see whether something has been mistyped or not ;)
