"Two mornings a week, I go for a hour walk.", it should be "an hour" IMO

Why is spazieren in a plural form?


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

"Ich gehe spazieren" – it's nominative singular. Wir gehen spazieren would be plural.

Duo people don't seem to have a lot of foresight. They should either not include sentences that have literally 20 different translations, or spend some time coding in each possible one.

"I go on a walk" was marked wrong whereas "I go for a walk" was in the translation. >.>

Also, no one says "two mornings a week" in english.

? Lots of people say "two mornings a week," provided of course that they have something to do two mornings a week. It's very similar to saying "twice a week" or "three times a week."

"Two mornings a week" is commonly used in my experience. It clarifies the actual time as morning instead of any time of day.

Why is there a need to include the preposition AN in this sentence??
