It could be either here. I hope you reported it if it marked you incorrect.

EDIT: If it was an audio exercise, you have to type in exactly what it says. It's often hard to tell if it uses "ze" or "zij," but it wants the exact right answer there.

"Zij heeft 15 jurken" is door mij ook een goede antwoord, zo waarom niet?

In your target language you are expecting to write out the numbers, so vijftien.

I have now listened to this audio exercise 7 times, and I swer, he says veertien, not vijftien. Am I the only one? (reported it, of course, but just want to know)

Darn, haha. I'll hopefully learn to hear the language eventually. I'm still deaf to French, I don't get it at all! Spanish became possible because of the talking exercises, I think. Does Dutch have that? Or is it just my tablet refusing to cooperate?

You need to check the settings (your mic has to be on, and then you need to check the settings on the app, of course -you can have different setting for different language courses I believe).

I think it also has to do with what your native language is and how much exposure you get. In my case, I watch the news in Dutch every weekend (last year I used to watch them every day, but this year I'm a lot busier so it's become impossible :P ).
