I'm going to make an educate guess here and assume "toilet" means the room, not the specific porcelain fixture within the room. Otherwise, ew.

I think it was already an accepted alternative, and in all honesty it's sort of a difference of dialects, but considering my own English dialect it created a fascinating image :-P

*μέσα στην

Only use "ς" at the end of a word.

I think "washroom" might be used in some parts of the US.

It will be added, but we've already had some disagreements with learners who wanted to have their suggestion/variation added. There will always be someone left unsatisfied, but that's the nature of Duolingo. Once again, we'd like to point out the importance of learning the Greek vocabulary, independently of how many different translations exist for each word in the English-speaking world, so we have to be stricter when it comes to adding English alternatives.

Of course - I actually wasn't complaining about the lack of possible translations in this case, just adding to the general discussion. I agree with you 100%, we should be focused on the Greek. I find myself getting caught up at times with these discussions about English, whose regional variant is more correct, etc.

In any case I really appreciate all the work that goes into these courses; thanks so much!
