In the U.K. we would just say ‘skip’, never ‘skip rope’.
Americans say skipping rope or jumping rope. Other dialects just say “skipping”. No one says “skipping a rope”
The verb is to skip and the object is the rope therefore my answer that Esther doesn't like skipping should stand. Please fix this. Im bad enough at this without having to learn American slang too! 16062020
Australian here, and we do not say skipping rope as a verb. A skipping rope is the rope used to skip.
What!? Who doesn't like skipping?
Esther apparently ...
Skipping doesn't need rope after it
Again, skipping and skipping rope are different things, at least in America.
America is not the only country that speaks English. In every other country skipping can mean using a rope or propelling oneself happily in any direction.
Yeah, "kamba" means "rope," so I would think this is just about jumping rope. Maybe "skipping" by itself means "jumping rope" in Tanzanian English? Or they just left a word off in the translation?
Yes. Kuruka be itself is skipping.
There are exercises where the verb was used alone for "skipping"
Nothing esoteric bout that. TY
This has still not been fixed. 21052020
Yes. In cool skipping and boxing culture, people are now saying jump rope in English to mean skipping. But I've never heard skipping rope as an activity
I am English and we say 'she doesn't like skipping
Hmm... I prefer to swim.
My answer "jump rope " was marked wrong. Is that so?!
I used to jump rope to describe the activity. Report it.
