"They are aging quickly" is not correct?


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

It is one of correct answers.

I said "they grow old quickly" and it was rejected.


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

I agree that that should be an acceptable answer


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

same here, I reported it as a correct answer

My answer -- They are getting old quickly -- was accepted, so I guess this issue has been resolved. Yay!

Is there a reason that "They are growing up fast" is not accepted?

I'd say that "growing up" is not really right. The DL sentence could be about cheeses or whiskey aging in a cellar. It is not necessarily about human beings or animals "growing up".

Even restricted to human beings, the DL sentence could be about adult, fully-grown humans getting even older, rather than about children maturing.

They are fast growing up. ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ion1122

The word order in English would be: They are growing up fast.

what is wrong with "they quickly get old"? In my opinion it is again putting a lot of emphasize on perfect english instead of teaching czech...
