Literally: thunder strikes.
치다: to strike or to thunder
in english thunder claps or crashes ... it certainly doesn't strike
Yes but we are learning Korean, not English
That isn't how translation works... unless you are going word for word, the point is to get the meaning across most accurately in whatever language duolingo asks for in my opinion.
How does one say: "The thunder rolls"?
It's always winding hard when it's thundering.
