First, nice incorporation of the course creators' names.

Second...would it be possible for "Andrei" to be accepted as well as "Andrew," since names are often not translated?

Yes... it should be accepted...

Please, spare me that translation! Andrei is Andrei, Andrew is Andrew, Andrea is Andrea and so on...

You deserve a lingot! It's ridiculous to translate names!!

I wrote it with "Andrei" not Andrew, and it worked for me - I'm guessing it is accepted.

Hm... I didn't see any other error that I had made. I must have missed something. I haven't spoken Romanian in years. Thanks!

I wrote "I am Sebastian and he is Andrew" and that is considered wrong (there should be no "and"), but "Andrei" is accepted.

My version was "Hi, I'm Sebastian and he's Andrei."

I was wondering if the English contractions would be accepted, and they were. Also insertion of "and" and use of Andrei rather than Andrew.

Maybe some changes have been made in a year.

Agreed. If Andrei, Ionna and Mihai were to introduce themselves, they would not translate their names. The other languages do not require a translation of names either. Also, as a learner of Romanian, having to recall the translations of names, in addition to the grammar and vocabulary is, in my opinion, unnecessarily challenging.

Seb is singlehandedly increasing the popularity of learning Romanian. He gets so happy when he hears a fan speak Romanian to him! <3

Why are names translated? This seems to add unnecessary confusion
