Yeah, that's what I said and it didn't like "confirms". :(

You should report it. Some of the translations are not the best.

But affirm is not the same as confirm, is it?

Actually "better than she" is correct and grammatical but I doubt DL would accept it.

I'd always assumed that 'better' was 'tốt hơn'. Could someone explain to me what 'hay hơn' is, how it compares to 'tốt hơn', or whether 'tốt hơn' is even correct.

Why the 'người' here? I don't recall us using it for other professions or jobs (say, we weren't told to say 'người nhà khoa học' or 'người bác sĩ') in previous lessons.

"hay" is often used for singing or a talent. the other concern is one of correct English. "The singer affirms that I sing better than she (does.) "her" is incorrect english.

Duo is committed to "conversatiional," technically, incorrect usages. That is Duo's choice. The valid objection is that Duo often rejects correct and proper English.

Both “she” and “her” sound right to me, though one of them may be more correct than the other.

Khẳng định sounds like 'kaan lik'
