The hint says 'cards' is 'những thiệp' but only 'những tấm thiệp' is accepted.

tấm is a classifier indicating thin, flat and rectangular objects.

I wish they would give us a list of classifiers! that seems like a pretty specific classifier, as opposed to "people" or "animals" or "clothes"

someone did post about it, it's exhaustive enough for the most used classifiers.

I thought card is thẻ


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

thiệp is referring to invitation cards (thiệp mời), business cards (danh thiếp), whereas thẻ is more of debit or credit cards (thẻ tín dụng), phone cards (thẻ gọi điện thoại), permanent resident/green card (thẻ xanh), health card (thẻ bảo hiểm sức khỏe), etc.

I put this "Tôi sẽ làm cho những thiệp cho bạn" and it was marked wrong. Do we need to use chiếc? or nhứng tấm thiếp?
