Can someone explain when to use teastaíonn and when to use tá? (I used the latter here -- "Tá féilire uaim" -- and was marked wrong.

It should be correct if it asked you to translated from "want". I would advice generally use teastaigh for "need" and tá ó for "want"

If I wanted to say "I want a cat calendar" (as in a calendar with pictures of cats) could I say "Teastaíonn féilire cat uaim" or "Teastsaíonn féilire na cat uaim" ?
