What's wrong with "I'm wearing" here?

Both Irish and English distinguish between the simple present (e.g. “I wear”) and the present progressive (e.g. “I’m wearing”). Caithim sciorta glan uses the simple present; the analogous present progressive would be Táim ag caitheamh sciorta ghlain.

Is this what caithim is supposed to sound like? I heard ta an sciorta glan.

Decent enough pronounciation, and no: no "tá an" ...

Thanks Bally. I'm never too sure what she's saying.

The translation sentence is wrong, it is different from the one above. The One above makes sense " I wear a clean skirt". The sentence in the test says" I throw a clean skirt"
