Anyone else having problems with their answers being rejected every time?

Hello, all:

I did glance over this forum, but I haven't had any luck finding people asking about this on the first few pages of results, so here goes.

I changed my keyboard layout to a Hebrew layout from a US QWERTY layout. A handy tip that I learned from someone else to learn non-US-keyboard layouts was to take a screen shot of the keyboard and have it sitting off to the side as I complete exercises until I get used to where all of the letters are on the keyboard. So I did that, and I managed to stumble my way through a few exercises. I carefully compared my output to what was being shown to me to the left of the input area, and when I was satisfied, I submitted the answer.

I was told I was wrong. Every time, I was marked "wrong." So I copied what was there and pasted that into the field. I was still marked "wrong."

Anyone else getting this weird error?

Edit: Also, for the record, I do understand that this is the first day of beta, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Are you sure you're writing in the correct order? Hebrew is written 'backwards' compared to English. It's right to left.

The backspace and the delete buttons are also nightmares if you are used to Left to Right

Well, they caught me off guard at first, but I'm used to them now =)

i'm a hebrew native speaker and i tried the course, but my PERFECT answers were rejected... i reported a problem to help improve it... i think it's because of the unfinised phases.

btw, if you're interested in Hebrew, i've just posted a cool competition... try it! https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16275271

I definitely wrote it the correct way. It wouldn't explain why, if I copy the phrase exactly (literally copy what Duo writes, then paste it into the answer box), it's rejected every time, either.
