I heard this first, and thought "Eew, green soup?"

Given the abundance of greens in a human diet, I would be more grossed out if my soup were blue instead. Blue is a relatively rare color on the dining table, save for artificially colored desserts.

Blueberries, eggplant (some)

But they are more dark purple than blue?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Neil431711

Sorry Athina_M, I am colorblind and assumed, in the case of blueberries, that the berries were blue.

When I first heard it I thought "What? Blue soup?"


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

mmm, split pea soup!

Why is blue not accepted if that's one of the translations for this word?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RodSalomon1

왜 푸르다는 푸르러요를 변하요?


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

whats wrong with 'rather blue' ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Panda12390

Why can't " That forest is a bit green." accepted? I reported it because this makes sense too


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tina12705

A bit would rather be 조금, quite is 꽤.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Staszek456

It almost sounds like if she said '저 수프는 왜 푸르러요' - 'why is this soup green?' xD


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pamela909830

I put, "That forest over there is quite green." In other exercises 저 is "that over there."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tina12705

Should be accepted, I would flag it.
