Duolingo's not accepting correct answers

Hi, I can't progress because my correct answers (health) aren't accepted and there are no more topics available. What do I do? I could give alternative answers just to get around it but they wouldn't be the best English.

Report every non-accepted correct sentence you write, and maybe work on a different language and come back in a few days and the answers might have been entered into the system. If otherwise, maybe it is necessary to modify your English just for 1 skill.

Yes, modification is necessary sometimes, especially if the course is still in beta. Welsh is very new. They are still working out the kinks. If anything, even in older courses, there are a few Dutch skills where I know going in that I will have to say it their way and I just memorise that as well and move on.

Thanks. I was reporting almost continuously. I teach English as a foreign language, so know what's what there, but maybe you're right about giving different answers, although it goes against the grain to translate something "wrong":( I'm trying not to do more than one language at a time, otherwise I get myself confused. At the moment I'm alternating between Welsh and German - one month on one month off. But I do have a lot of catching up to do on German, so maybe not bad idea to switch:)
