"Good morning! How are you?"
Translation:Καλημέρα! Τι κάνεις;
I got this as multiple choice, and two of the answers were exactly the same. They were both correct, but there was no difference.
...at least, that's what I thought. I was in the middle of sending a report when I noticed that one of them said Τι and the other said Τί. One tiny little accent was the whole difference.
'Πώς είσαι' and 'Τι κάνεις' are both singular and have the same meaning.
'Πώς είστε' and 'Τι κάνετε' are both plural. (They are also formal usage when speaking to older people etc.)
They all have the same meaning with 'Τι κάνεις/Τι κάνετε' being a bit more common or colloquial.
That simply is not the way it is said in Greek. It may seem logical but languages are made up of what people actually use and on Duo you will learn those words. You don't need to make your own.
Here are some tips to help you learn on Duolingo.
If you need any help just ask.
"Πώς είσαι΄" is also accepted. First you should have read the other comments on this page to see that it also correct. If your answer wasn't accepted you should have made a Report.
