The genitive 1 course is too hard. Why is it soo hard?
As opposed to other topics (animals, etc), the genitive course says "incorrect" if you dont spell it EXACTLY the way duolingo likes to spell it.
This makes it too difficult! I usually complete after ~70 submissions (# in top right corner). That is compared too ~20 on a regular one.
Yeah! I totally agree with you, at the beginning, this case was so difficult to me, (Russian cases, at the beginning are a nightmare) now I think I can use it in my Russian conversations (and it sometimes sounds quite natural without even thinking of it), there are a lot of other things that I gotta keep learning in Russian though.
All true. Thanks.
@shadyarc, those examples SHOULD be wrong, but spelling "pit" without that slanty apostrophe (all I have is ''''''') or mal'chik with the slanty appostraphe or spelling karandasha as karandosha, and other minor errors should be correct.
I find that genitive 1 is much more unforgiving of these minor errors than the other courses.
Sometimes I may remember the exact grammer, but spell "chitaet" as chitat' or something like that and it will say "incorrect".
Thanks contributors for all your hard work on duolingo! I've really learnt alot of russian from here. And this complaint doesn't change that fact.
Use transliteration at your own risk. It was Duolingo's idea, and we have always been against it. If you decide to study Russian transcribed automatically, no one is going to help you. I only remember the rules approximately, and cannot help you spelling "существующий" or "дешёвый" correctly.
