Doesn't this say "we need two warm hats"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna839191

yeah it does, did you report?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cessnapilott172

No, I thought I would ask first but now I can't find that questions again.

Yeah, don't worry about it. I'm sure many others have reported it. I get that you want to be sure that you are right about something before reporting it, I'm like that too :D

I've definitely reported it, but yeah, I'm probably not the only one.

Thanks to this conversation I will be on time to report it.

English version says "two woolen hats". Of course I also got it wrong since nothing said they are also warm

In the US "woolen" is far more frequently used than "woollen", IMHO.

In the UK, I'd say "woolly hat" :)

In Australia we call them beanies! But I can revert to my native UK English and call them woolly hats

Reported also with flag - the original english sentence makes no reference to warm.
