"Travellers" is marked as a mistake but can't be reported.

Literally has "travelers", "passengers", and "voyagers" as translations of Wasafiri, but putting travelers are wrong?

I also put travelers and got it wrong.

Very confused at the wording. I put "Africans are voyagers". I feel this should correct

@Duolingo - Perhaps 'travellers'

Would "tourists" be an acceptable translation for "wasafiri"?


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

'Tourists' is 'watalii'. 'Wasafiri' is just generally 'people who are travelling'

I was wondering that too
