Translation:Study hard and make progress every day.
There is no AND in tge Chinese version. It is implied all right but omitting AND in the translation should not be a mistake.
That changes the meaning from what it's trying to say. Working hard every day results in progress, not necessarily progress everyday
Some of mine that Duo dislikes, "Study hard and progress daily", "Study hard and advance day by day." and as an experiment in an idiomatic translation "Hit the books and make the grade"
This. Idioms are a bad thing to have folks translate for meaning, especially when you aren't going to provide an initial explanation...
"Study hard" is an English idiom, so the problem isn't the course, it's the English language. It's such a basic phrase that it makes sense to teach it.
This seems to be very idiomatic proverb and I can't think of an English equivalent so there would be many conceivable correct ways to translate it.
"Excelsior!" might be the closest equivalent idiom, but Duolingo's "make progress every day" catches the meaning while staying basically literal (while not over-literal as the infamous Chinglish translation is, ha! )
In retrospect, the Chinese isn't idiomatic; it's the English that's idiomatic ("study hard"). There's no need think of an English idiom to describe another English idiom.
I said "study hard, and you will get better every day." Which is the same meaning as the "progress every day" but still got it wrong lol.
This is a saying, it is relatively difficult to translate but it is certainly not "and", the second phrase implies action to be taken and not effects to be seen from a prior causal action.
Perhaps: Study hard; work towards becoming better everyday
"study hard, make progress every day" is one year after pkoutsenko's post still not accepted... Again I pressed report, let's see. Sorry... Again I pressed report AND let's see. :-) Just in case there are any Dutch speakers here: If there isn't an AND in the original sentence, don't try to f*ck it. hahaha
Get better every day should be accepted
