Italian captain on it??

I put "That boat is dangerous" and it was marked wrong. Nave can't translate to boat?

Nave is ship. Barca is boat. They have different meanings the same way as in English

Weird. I think there are other places where Duolingo translates nave as boat. Apparently the website is inconsistent.

yeah duolingo all four of us need an explanation on this

If it has lifeboats, it's a ship, otherwise it's a boat. They're different things but you usually don't make this distinction in normal conversation.

I said that ship is unsafe (being that was one of the choices) and was marked wrong???

5 August 2019: I said the ship was hazardous (also in the clues) and was marked wrong.

Could nave be translated as boat too?


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

They want this translated as THIS ship. This is wrong.

Quella = that NOT this

I said "This boat is dangerous" named it worming :/

Ok then what is the difference between a BOAT and SHIP?


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

A ship can carry a boat. A boat cannot carry a ship

The word tap exercise is bugged. It just sent the words randomly arround the gaps without following a logic order


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

Davy Jones begs to differ!

I put 'That ship is unsafe.' DLG marks it 'wrong' I don't quite understand the logic of this question.
