What is wrong with writing " the girls OF Mexico are very pretty."?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/0KyfnlOF

I think because you really would not normally say that.

Nothing, it should be accepted.

Well no offense but you write it the girls FROM Mexico are very pretty


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

That would only be correct if they traveled from there to be somewhere else. The girls that live in Mexico are indeed OF it.

I think they are actually still from Mexico. I would never say "girls of Mexico".

Yeah, that's not how any native English speaker would say it.

Grammar, mostly.

Judging from the talent I saw in the stands at the recent World Cup, I would agree with this statement. Que rica!

Lol...ALL girls are pretty !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmmaMitche89062

Can you just say "Mexico's girls are very pretty"? Or even" Mexico girls are very pretty "?


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

"Mexican girls" is accepted, less wordy.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ThomasClem258187

But is it? Could you be saying that subset of girls in your group vs all Mexican girls?

Is there a way to say the mexican girls over there (and over there is assumed) are pretty vs saying all Mexican girls?

¡es la verdad!


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

Looks like I need to go to Mexico.

Does it have the same kinda ring as chicks in English? As in it's very informal and sounds borderly sexist


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

I don't think so. It's just that "chica" implies a teen or young woman, while "niña" is more like a child. You wouldn't call a teenager a "niña". Same with "chico" vs "niño" (boy).
