Schueler = pupils/school children ie anyone attending school
Studenten = ACTUAL STUDENTS AT UNIVERSITY.
Is this not the case?
It's important to know the difference between "Schüler" and "Student", but there's nothing wrong with Duolingo's translation.
Yes that's the case, but in the USA we call everyone a student from kindergarten to university.
Oh really? That's interesting. When I lived in Germany I was frequently corrected due to misunderstandings, haha. I know that vocab etc can vary from region to region. Perhaps this is the case. Nevertheless, I think pupils should be accepted. Thanks for your input Christian :)
