Numbers not being recognised when having this sentence as a speaking exercise?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hanna735767

Same here. And now the speaking exercises come back at the end too, if marked wrong, so I just can't get through this whole lesson, only if I skip the speaking exercises.

It's better to put a hyphen between 'ninety' and 'four'; but when I did so, the program complained that it should have been a space instead. But here on this page the translation has the hyphen!

Can I use "девятнадцать девяносто четвёртом" like in English "nineteen ninety four"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kundoo

No, Russian doesn't split the number of a year like that.

It seems that most languages don't.

Я родилася в тысяча девятьсот пятьносто шестом = I (f) was born in 1956? I just wanted to see if I could build a sentence about myself.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kundoo

Almost :) "Я родилась в тысяча девятьсот пятьдесят шестом".

Ah - thank you. We haven't learned 50 yet.

You were tripped up by the fact that ninety is the odd one out. The other higher tens have a very consistent pattern:

50 - пятьдесят

60 - шестьдесят

70 - семьдесят

80 - восемьдесят

Ah - thank you - I wonder why DuoLingo chose to introduce the odd man out first.

Я родился в тысяча девятьсот девяносто седьмом году.

this exercise is not working


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PeterBudge1

тысяча wasn't included in the words to choose from!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nikomikodjin

Is it typical/just more casual to omit году at the end?

I must have tried upteen times to get a pass on this (I think) thorny verbal exercise. Does duo have a point at which it stops bringing it up in its mistakes function?
