Should "The girl lives near us." be accepted?


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

No, that would be "Het meisje woont vlak/dicht bij ons".

+1 for "next door to". In British English, most people would say that rather than just "next to".

"The girl lives next door to us." should also be accepted as it is what we normally would say in (Canadian) English.

I'm British. "Next door" is more correct here too.

As Axedrez asked, why is "The girl lives close to us not accepted" ?


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

Close to us would be "dicht bij ons"

Why not "the girl lives by us"?
