I wish there was an option to listen to the phrase slower...

So thắng can have the negative and positive connotation? IE: Win or Defeat? Or would the direct translation be "The villains will never win us"

Bump this, it's a good question I think a moderator answer to would help me understand the usage of "thắng" better. Because what if "us/we" were a prize the villains win? Or they could "win us over"... that's probably not a Vietnamese phrase though...

Look at it like "thắng" = the winner of a contest. Then it will make sense to you.

I think thắng = being the victor in a fight or competition

I feel like it should be beat us not defeat or win ... since beat can be used both ways: they beat us, we beat them

And win and defeat as the translation shows only works one way

đánh bại = beat/defeat được không?

The villains (wicked) will never defeat (win against) us. Come on Duolingo please fix this. thắng = what? Both 'win' and 'defeat'?

it should be beat and not defeat for spoken word.

Not an English native speaker here, why "beat" is better than "defeat".


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

Could it be that Duo is aiming for 'the villains will never win us over'.

As a Globish speaker, I typed '...will never win us', that's a mistake; I am grateful for the owl teaching me more and more English every day :)
