I put in the correct answer but it was marked incorrect!

What was your answer?

(Remember that it is better for learning to write out the Welsh numbers in full rather than as digits, which is why the digits are not accepted in the Welsh answers.)

Fe es i i Ffrainc yn mil naw naw naw. Wasn't accepted. Correct S Welsh, surely.

You can put mi or fe in front of a statement if you like, but they are entirely optional. It is not as simple as the mythical 'north' vs 'south' - the dialects are more complicated and interesting than that.

We have not added mi/fe to the answers database for every example yet, as we are trying to concentrate on developing the next version of the course.

The question accepts answers with variations of "es i Ffrainc" and "mi es i Ffrainc" rather than "es i i Ffrainc" when 1999 is entered as "ym mil naw naw deg naw" rather than "ym mil naw naw naw"

That’s fixed now - a typo in the answers. Thank you for letting us know.
