Keep reporting, developers have been pretty good about adding British variants and spelling differences. After all it's Futbol in Ukrainian too :P

It's just because here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8737910 they ask you to stop reporting british english errors.

The request was to stop creating similar reports (a report, then a freewrite report, then a comment and repeated for every sentence with a similar word). If you clearly make your point that this one is British English - all other sentences with this word will be tended.

Гартуйсь Серджійо (Сергій)! I'm SO glad that DL is looking at the Ukrainian language not just from the Ukraine's current speech (from Велика Україна), but also the way Ukrainian-speakers worldwide have been speaking for over a century.) The various immigrations to Canada, USA, Australia, England, Germany, South America, etc. still have retained the 'older', beautifully melodic (and more detailed/specific) Ukrainian language, thus making the Ukrainian rich, authentic & real. I'm glad that DL has an open mind to the different ways of expressing oneself in Ukrainian! Keep up the good work Sergio! :D
