  5. "Cha bu toil leam tì."

"Cha bu toil leam tì."

Translation:I would not like tea.

February 22, 2020



Who wouldn't like a nice cup of tea?


I put 'tha bo toil leam tì' which it marked as correct. That isnt just a simple mistake to ignore.


When would you use this? I am a native speaker of english abd to say " i would not want tea" sounds so akward and unatural. Do they mean "i dont want any tea" as if someone offered you tea and your turning it down.


It's just a language exercise. I can usually come up with a context that makes these sorts of phrases sound natural, though. "If I had just drunk a gallon of water, I would not want tea."
