Listening Exercises Suggestion

I often find myself typing English into the German listening exercises (instead of German). I feel updating the listening questions to accept both German and English would enhance the learning experience. I would be interested to hear other peopleäs thoughts on this.

I thought it did accept both languages. If you type in the wrong language it warns you but then lets you retype your answer in the correct language.

My hope is that duolingo will accept both languages as answers - not just the language one is learning.

Well, surely only one answer is correct. It is a listening exercise, not a translation exercise and it does't penalise you for it.

But I do understand, I also listen to the question sentence and try translating it but it doesn't take me long to write the correct sentence.
