The Romanian word 'pâine' is related to the French word 'pain', right?

Also, the spanish word pan, the portugese word pão, and the italian word pane. From the latin pānis or pānem.

Strangely enough, the Japanese word for bread is also "pan!"

It's no coincidence. The word came into the Japanese language via trade with the Portuguese. It's also where "tempura" comes from.

Duolingo has trouble with contractions.

"Don't" worked for me right now. (Maybe they updated it. Make sure to report any obvious mistakes!)
