Jimin is quite short, though...

His thought came in my mind after reading it lol


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chahak_Gupta28

Taking about Jimin?

Still he is above 6 ft... 그리 안 작아요 ;)

He is not above 6 but...he is still pretty tall...175cm or something right...he is NOT short...:):)

Why is "the singing man" not okay here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jlseymour3

It should be. Report it.

지민씨 is that you ?

Is there a way to email someone about a problem I came across? It's about a future question in this lesson that isn't working for me


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

I'm having the same problem. There is a question that won't fully load and then went let me progress past it. For anyone that can help, it's the first question that asks us to select the missing word.

Yup same problem here, i emailed support and they sent back a canned response so who knows when it will get fixed.

Im going to try uninstalling and reinstalling and see if that works but thats the only advice i have you.

I just had to test out of the lesson to get past it.

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

Same thing for me. I can't seem to get past it or test out since it's in the weakest words revision.

None of the questions work for me unless i turn WiFi off and switch to data. Maybe it's something with how the app works with WiFi...

I feel like this sounds better as: "노래하는 남자는 키가 그리 작지 않아요."

Can anyone explain to me why "The singing man is not that short" was not accepted??


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

What is the function of the 리 here? Is it a grammar pattern?


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

그리 is a whole word itself and it means that or so. Please check the Tips of the course, it's explained there.

Can someone explain why "..is not so short" incorrect


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Danisse.07

Why is "The singing man is not that short" wrong?


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

so is this a synonym to 그만큼?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NanditaNan6

Is duoling talking about jiminshiiiii


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

맞아요 그리고, 저는 키가 그리 안 작아요... 하지만 저는 짧은 사람


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pipper724298

Why do the hints suggest small and not short?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/anikaj29

"The singing man isn't that small." was marked wrong. Is "small" really incorrect? Or should it always be "short"?
