"They raise their children."
Translation:Αυτοί ανατρέφουν τα παιδιά τους.
although I knew what you wanted here and wrote the right answer I am wondering whether I could use " μεγαλωνουν " instead as this was what my parents would use.
Yes, of course and it is just what I would use. I think we just wanted to add another word to the vocab list. Could you tell me which unit it was in so I can add μεγαλώνουν. (for some reason I cna't access it from here). Thank you.
I was just practicing what I have already done. So I was not in a specific learning unit. The specific example was:
"They raise their children." Translation: Αυτοί ανατρέφουν τα παιδιά τους.
my biggest difficulty is trying to differentiate what are the Greek-American colloquialisms and "χοριατικα" Greek from my family from what I learned at University and living in Athens for 6 years. I did well then but over the last 40 years I have slipped back somewhat.
