"Good day" hasn't been used as a daytime greeting regularly since the Restoration (late 17th century). "Hello" is simpler, less florid and a much closer translation.
Yeah, no one says "good day" in English anymore, even in the most formal contexts.
By the same token, not as many people in Finland use " päivää" as a greeting these days. Terve, hei, moi, moikka, morjens, and moro are more prevalent
Well ... Aussies and Kiwis kind of say it (gidday) ... but I guess that's a bit niche.
Niche ? Like the french word for dog house ?
Macmillan dictionary British definition of niche:
"of interest or appeal only to a small number of people - e.g.
We didn’t set out intentionally to do something that’s a bit niche."
Please stop showing o'clock as two words. It is a single compound word in uk english.
"It is four" should be accepted.
What time is it?
Päivää is also one of a number of ways that Finns say hello.
o'clock is arguably one word these days, and even if it wasn't, the apostrophe belongs on the "o'" not the "clock", because it's an abbreviation of "on the clock"
The hint says "What's the time?" and yet it says it's wrong if you use it.
"Good day" sounds Australian English.
G' d day, mate!
Australians in Finland
What is the time = what time is it. And no one ever says "good day" – good morning/afternoon/evening/night (the last only on parting
"It is" or "The time is" are the same?
Good day, what time is it? Good day, the time is four o'clock
Though it sounds strange to us Duo often says "day, morning..." instead of "good day, good morning..." so that it should be accepted here.
Maybe its for the Australian learner's yes I know that is a false stero type as well.
