I really need to look at the notes more closely! Running the lessons during the morning commute is probably a factor as well :)
Am I right in thinking the idiomatic here is "There is hate with me for/of cream"? I originally thought it was saying some "it" was nasty with cream.
The literal translation is as you have written, or perhaps 'It is nasty with me cream'. The actual translation in normal English is of course 'I hate cream'. As explained in the notes, this is one of two ways that the course teaches of saying 'I hate...'
Just use a web browser on your device to access the web version of the course - the notes are formatted properly for phones and tablets as well as for larger screens.
There is only only set of notes for each unit, not for the individual lessons, so you do not need constant access to them. You could copy the content to a local file if you want access to them while you do not have an internet connection.
That's what I keep saying. This defective system is soul-destroying. I'M NOT SURE I SHALL BOTHER AGAIN.
If the Duo system is not working correctly, please report the issues in the ‘Duolingo troubleshooting discussion’. The Duo staff do monitor that and will have a chance to investigate and fix problems.
I am afraid that the course teams can only fix problems with course content that we have created, not the underlying system.
