"J'ai un chapeau bleu."
Translation:I have a blue hat.
I just hate it when I accidentally hit the CHECK button when I'm not finished
I couldn't remember what chapeau meant so i clicked and saw cap was one...used it even though I was taught hat, and it marked it wrong. Thanks, duolingo.
Chapeau translates to hat/top while cassquette translates to cap. It seems Duolingo has had an error or glitch.
Sometimes I see "bleu" and sometimes I see "bleue". What's the difference?
Marisatanas, (after a) "le" noun –– bleu // (after a) "la" noun –– bleue
"hat" is "chapeau and "cap" is "casquette". That's why you were marked wrong.
They just don't have all translation possibilities programmed, that's all. It's probably best to not use contractions in the translations.
The correct translation is "I have a blue hat" and "I've" isn't properly used here. Hope this helps.
It doesn't sound correct to me,but I learned English from hearing and never heard it like that,so...
Anyways,if it's correct you should report it
Melody, In matters of possession ,to my ears, "American usage" [used by DL] is "I have"; in British usage I'd expect to hear 'I've.'
The male voice sais J'ai un chapeau. So i wrote i have a hat. Please correct the voiceover or accept my answer.
Martha, I believe that DL does not, perhaps, even look at these comments. I think that this is viewed as our forum. I think the idea is to click on ("report"?) immediately after being "wrong." ----I notice that I used to be able to add a few words of explanation; now I see just three possible choices to simply click on.
I wrote 'j'ai un chapeau blue' and it was seen as correct despite of a typo. I think in this case the typo is important enough to mark it as incorrect. Blue is english and bleu is french; i make the mistake over and over again.
okay, what is the difference between hat, cap, and top here? aren't they the same thing? why does it mark it wrong when i said hat? does anybody know?
Cap is Casquette while Hat/Top is Chapeau. I don't know why it marked hat wrong, as it is the correct translation.
You are right but now it has different translation so it is not accepted. Cant help
SERIOUS CRITERIA CHAT #WHO KNOWS. This sentence is a lie. I do not have a blue hat.
