It gave me "dw i'n hoffi coffi a dŵr" and "dw i'n licio coffi a dŵr." as two options for "I like coffee and water". It marked the second as wrong even though I've seen it as an alternative spelling for "leicio", meaning "like" - https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/leicio#Welsh

licio is the spelling adopted on this course as it the one most usually taught in Wales. Your Dw i'n licio... should have been accepted if it was entered correctly.

I also just realized it said "dw i'n licio CINIO a dŵr." so never mind, haha. Good to know that about the lesson and spelling standards, still, thank you!
