today is Monday tomorrow is Tuesday the day after is Wednesday...should be accepted as English translation

A native English speaker would never say 'Now is Monday .' Today is Monday or It's Monday today.

It is very annoying you can have the right answer, but used slightly different English word order. There is little flexibility with English, the way English speakers use the language. I will be very glad to get our of this 'time' lesson.

I am so annoyed with this inflexibility, I will downgrade my review of this app. The only way to get out of this lesson is to write down their version of the answer and get rid of this lesson.

In English "today" would be more natural. How weird is it to say "Hari ini hari Senin" in Indonesian?

It's only weird if it's not Monday.

I agree. Today is Monday is correct as "now" is not a day.

I was maked wrong because I left out "the" in the English sentence. Being a native English speaker I think that "the" is optional in this sentence... My Indonesian dictionary says lusa is "day after tomorrow".

translator. you have lost the theme of the statement

Could you translate "sekarang hari" as today?


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

Today=Hari ini. Sekarang hari=Now day, which is a bit inappropriate to indicate today.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tsuj1g1r1

In this sentence, the "hari" is part of "hari Senin," not "sekarang hari."

“Today is Monday” was accepted
