    Really should be "are you blind?"

    Are they trying (in the original Italian) to say that the metro station is in 2 stops ?

    I said The station is two meters away but Duo wanted a literal translation.

    Duolingo likes to correct our English. To one of my attempts to humor them by playing their game, their translation was "at two metres." Excuse me?

    So it's not "the station is close"? like due passi, quattro soldi etc.

    Surprising observation when it's that close!

    The original question was "Excuse me, can you please tell me what is two metres from here?""

    who would ever say this - unless we are talking about model railways?
