Хаха полуправда. Мы японцы знаем английский. Мы умеем читать и писать, но все же говорить и понимать на слух очень сложно.

Would this be okay: "In Japan everyone speaks in Japanese and English is almost unknown"?

"По-японски" or "на японском (языке)" ; but sometimes duo don't think that these word combinations are identical.

This English translation is bad. It is phrased in such an awkward way. You wouldn't hear anyone ever say this sentence that way.

Why does it mark 'everyone speaks' as incorrect and change it to 'everyone speak'?

It is frustrating that although I understand this sentence , I have to learn the DL's translation by heart, otherwise it is not accepted ...

Shouldn't "In Japan everyone speaks Japanese, and almost no English" be accepted?
