"They raise their children."

Translation:Αυτοί ανατρέφουν τα παιδιά τους.

September 13, 2016



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.
