yes, of course it is an alternative. Was yours rejected? :(

Yes, meaning it was rejected. But it was an alternative. Which part of the course was it on Strengthen skill, multiple choice, listening ??


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jeanprendiville

Yes, it was rejected in Strengten, I think module on Future Tense. I have finished the tree so I am now keeping it green!

I was afraid of that. the Strengthen skill asn some other sections which are chosen by the bot do not receive our edits so come up with strange requirements. We're trying to get to the bottom of it.

I wrote "Ο θείος μου δεν θα ξεκινήσει να μιλάει Ισπανικά" and didn't accept.

That is an accepted translation and it should have been accepted. If you had it in a Strengthen skills section there is a glitch which we are trying to have corrected.

Ok! thank you!

Can anyone tell me how to post a screenshot from my Android phone in to the conversation please?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G.Georgopoulos

Please google the instructions on how to take a screenshot. After that upload it to an image hosting website (imgur, for example).

Why "να μιλάει" is wrong? This is actually more popular than μιλά

Both are accepted and are in the incubator. If this was found in Strengthen Skills please read the comment above yours. Strengthen skills is maintained by the Duobot and seems to have a glitch and not only in this course. We are trying to correct it.

When I put in « start » it corrected it using « begin »

So true. I wonder how long the new tree will take. Feels like we're doing it one brick at a time but we want to avoid every possible error this time around. There is progress of course but it's really uphill.

Why is μιλάει wrong?

It is correct. If you had a problem please give us enough information...and a screenshot if possible...to report it as a technical error.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Isidor868839

Sorry, I didn't make a screenshot. But it was https://www.duolingo.com/skill/el/Verbs%3A-Future/6.
