"The man and the woman are talking."
Translation:Mannen och kvinnan pratar.
What's the difference between talar and pratar? Is pratar "talk" and talar "speak"?
I had the same question and looked it up. It seems like they mean the same thing, but talar is more formal and old-fashioned.
They correspond to talk (prata) and speak (tala) quite well actually. So tala is preferred for speaking languages, holding a speech or speaking to someone, while prata is a bit more relaxed.
Why is it that sometimes Duolingo accepts both, and in this case only pratar is correct? At least be consistent :D
