Mothers and fathers walk the street?


Must be protesting something . . .


"In the road, fathers and mothers walk" was rejected. It's valid english Grammar for the concept, and likely a better word for 'Via' than 'street'. (I don't know if a strata is a subset of via, but in either case, it's more specific than the Latin sentence.)


Duolingo tends not to accept sentences when you switch the order of words in an 'and'. That may have been why, otherwise just report it I suppose.
