Ambiguous question

When this question comes up, I always pick the wrong language and get it wrong. And there's no way of telling!

There is actually :) Read the box before you start typing and it will tell you which language you need to type in.

What box? The screenshot accurately shows before and after (if you mentally remove the red box for 'before'). There is nothing to read. Maybe on web, but not on iphone. I've yet to come across this sentence on the website, but I have several times on iphone.

Your screenshot does not show the box before you started writing "makarna" :) I tested it on Droid before I wrote this just to check and it should say something like "Type your answer in English/Turkish"

Aha, you are indeed right! For some reason that text never ever registered in my brain. Please accept my apologies and a lingot.

Not a problem...when our course first came out a lot of people noticed it and it took a lot of sleuth work to figure it out :D

Also, if there is audio, that means the sentence is in the target language (Turkish).

You are right; there should be audio, but it never plays for me (some just don't), or I shouldn't have started this thread. Really, this has happened multiple times; I'll look for the audio button next time.
