Đang thảo luận cannot be discussing?


it can be. also, discuss means tranh luận, bàn bạc, thảo luận, trò chuyện, bàn tán...


true that they all mean "to discuss" but they are not interchangeable as they have different degrees of agreement/disagreement within the discussion.


would you mind explaining what those differences are? :)

  • tranh luận: to dispute, to argue, to contest, to fight

  • thảo luận: to converse or debate concerning a particular topic
