    Stress marks would be nice, as it is sometimes difficult to determine stressed syllables from the robotic voice.

      You should quit smoking. Smoking is bad, mkay?

      Infinitive form for курю is курить.

        Got this sentence right after the question "do you smoke?" And it was even the woman asking and the man answering. Thanks for that, duo!

        No, I don't smoke. Здесь нет ошибки!!!

        Ты куришь? - Я не курица.

        I heard куду and I just couldn't figure out what was going on until I continued and was corrected.

        Sometimes these make me lie...another said "I don't drink beer". Sure, sounds like me)) XD XD XD

        what about "i am a woman"


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

        no i don't smoke - doesn't work


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matthew-215401

        I've been wondering how to say this ever since Duo first made me ask where I can smoke.


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

        Avoid saying it to gopniks at night. Just say them: Да я сам пустой, мужики. - I'm empty too, guys. After that you'll come home in good health. Maybe.

        Я не когда не курилла. А только пила красной вино.

        i write don't and it was incorrect. what a russia?]]]]]]]]


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John_Doe_72

        I wrote "don't" too and I'm a Russian. What's wrong?..


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jeffrey855877

        There's nothing wrong with the English answer you're writing. Duo sometimes allows contractions and sometimes doesn't allow them, and there's no reason for it. It's just not in the database, I imagine, and that's a mistake. It should be allowed, because "I don't smoke" is much more natural English.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bart249088

        What's wrong with 'I don't smoke' :(


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

        The pronunciation seens strange -' куду' rather than 'куру'. Is this normal?


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

        Wtf that was not understandable


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

        Duo automatically gave me the options to put "do not" or "don't" and marked "don't" as a typo


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

        Does курить also mean 'to go/rise up' or it can only mean 'to smoke'?


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

        ВКУРИТЬ - means to undesrstand soemthing, but it's kinda rude like "can you DIG IT?" And it doesn't mean "TO GO" or anything else. CHeers!
