How do I offer corrections?
I see an offer to correct an error when my answer is marked wrong, but not a way to comment back to Duo when I have guessed what was the desired answer (and hence was to told that I was correct) but. I believe that it is wrong. For example in my Spanish course just now "libre" was used. for "free admission" instead of "gratis"
I lived in South and Central America a lot growing up -- I am using Duolingo to get the rust out and clean up my grammar, especially the verbs.
The web version of the site has a report button for each sentence. I've heard the mobile version does not have a report feature. Are you using a phone or tablet?
I have an iphone (Apple) and it only gives the flag when it has ruled me wrong. When I am translating from proffered boxes of pre chosen options, I have no means of correcting
Several comments have been made regarding that sentence, some from two years ago. I think Duo may now accept gratis and libre
a rather recent change: when I offered "demasciado" for "too much" it was rejected in favor of "muy" which I translate as "very" but not necessarily excessive. Now in the last couple of weeks or less, demasciado has appeared. Someone did something somehow.
thanks--I searched but didn't find it. The language may have evolved in usage -- we older folks decry the grammatical errors until we have to accept that they are now part of the language. The dance between tradition and innovation.
The ability to offer correction when marked wrong just disappeared with new formatting --at least on the I phone. I was told that I did use the plural in translating Las vacaciones to English, though at least in American usage vacation is singular. Three exercises later, duolingo used the singular in English in the same sentence. I'd like to help, but I tuck my practice in here and there on the road, so I need to be able to do this on the phone.
