Respectfully suggest: being educated should also be acceptable, and is actually the correct translation. "Getting" is not actually grammatically correct, just very commonly used (I use it myself a lot).

This is still not accepted in October 2018. Is the course still being maintained?

Still marked wrong march 2019

What about “getting educated” is grammatically incorrect? It seems to parallel “getting sunburned”, for instance.

Still wrong December 2021

would it be correct to also translate this as "the children are educated in the school?"

...at school, without 'the'. Also acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NaftaliFri1

I think so. Technically school here is definite (בית הספר), but it can be understood as a generality.

Why would "being educated" be a wrong answer here?

When I translate ילדים as "boys" it gets marked wrong. Very frustrating. It means both "boys" and "children".

Pfft, getting educated at a school? Now I've seen everything.

OK to translate it "in the school"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ain15412

Not knowing the context, how can one guess if "מילדים" is "the children" or "the boys. I believe both shall be accepted


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NaftaliFri1

You are correct

the children are educated at the school is also correct!
