"Habari za mchana babu?"
Translation:How is the afternoon, grandpa?

Why can I not translate it to "how are you this afternoon grandfather?"
I think it's because that's the basic idea, however because it literally is "News of afternoon grandfather?" it is more simple, so something like "How is the afternoon grandfather?" is closer to what it means
But I am pretty sure that I earlier on translated "Habari za mchana" to "How are you this afternoon", so perhaps it's because "grandfather" was added? Though it wouldn't make sense that the translation changes that much....
You can report it if you think it should be accepted. The course is still in very very early beta.
"good afternoon grandfather !" is an exclamation. is not correct for a question.
When it pronounces the whole sentence, it does it correctly, but when I tap on mchana it sounds completely different
I noticed this too and it confused me. I guess they just uploaded the audio wrong
"grandfather" instead of "grandpa" should definitely be accepted! I have never said "grandpa" in my life unless I was reading it -- in our family it was always "granddaddy" to address the person and "grandfather" to talk about him.
Interpretation of Habari za jioni means good evening same as how your evening
I said grandfather and got it wrong because they wanted grandpa. Seriously??
