"The waitress drinks water but she doesn't drink wine."

Translation:Ólann an freastalaí uisce ach ní ólann sí fíon.

I'm not sure if this is a problem for everyone, but it seems like half the time on this one if I'm in the word bank, half the needed words are missing. "Freastalai" and "ni" this time around - out of the word bank it takes the right answer, but I'm just learning this lesson and it's easier for the first couple levels to see the words in the bank. :/


On longer exercises like this one, there is a bug in Duolingo that causes it to write some of the "wordbank" tiles behind the grey bar at the bottom of the page. If you look very, very carefully, you might see a sliver of the border of these tiles just above the grey bar. You might be able to get around this by changing the zoom level of the page, (I haven't tried this), but to bring it to the attention of the people who can fix this type of problem, you will have to take a screenshot showing the problem and submit it with a detailed bug report.

The Duolingo website developers will not see your comment here in a Sentence Discussion.


Why is it not ni ohlann. I thought ni lenited a following verb? GRMA
