Why am I getting an error message when my sentence was exactly as above except for the nekudot? Is there a place on my keyboard to insert nekudot?
I don't know. This often happens. It shows the correct answer and it is the same as the one I submitted. The only difference would be that mine doesn't show nekudot.
Oh I see what you mean. It does not show it as a typo. It shows it as incorrect.
We are aware of this bug. However, as far as I know, it should consider it as a typo in most cases.
Can you take a screenshot of it?
The word את "et" is the marker for a definite direct object - so if the direct object uses the word "the" / prefix ה then you need it.
When one writes את ה one puts emphasis on the object E.g. אני שותה יין ani shote yayn - I drink a wine But אני שותה את היין ani shote at hayayn - I drink the wine Its like pointing with your finger but verbally
