I am finding it too difficult to use the τονοι with my keyboard. So far it has not been a problem - I get graded 'almost right' . This is the first time I have been marked incorrect despite all spelling correct.

Well, I understand it's something that greek learners have a hard time getting used to, but unfortunately, they are vital in written greek, and it's a good method for you to remember how words are pronounced in spoken greek as well. ^.^ (Not sure why you were marked incorrect though. )

I have the same problems. What's about?

I have entered the correct spellings and sentence structure, yet have been marked wrong?

Sorry to hear that. Have you made a report? The reports help Duolingo understand what learners have problems with but also where there are issues in the program that need to be fixed.

We moderators cannot see your sentence therefore before you make a comment you should have made a REPORT. Then post on the comment page.

Here's how to REPORT.

Go to the bottom of the exercise page where you'll see "REPORT" Click on that:

Then choose what you want to REPORT: -My answer should be accepted. This is the one you should click on if your translation was not accepted.

After choosing the REPORT you want to make you should post on the comment page.

  • Please don't post comments about rejected sentences if you have not first made a REPORT

Ok, then just show us your translation so we can see it too. You can send a screenshot and of course, make a REPORT.

I left out the space after the komma and then it was accepted

I'm glad you found a way to overcome this error in the sentence.

Thanks for sharing with us.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DianaWard7

This needs to be corrected. It is only is counted correct if I leave out the space after the comma as it is left out in the answer above.

Yes, that is a problem that occurred when the course was first created and we can't fix it now. Until recently, Duolingo accepted it but the new algorithm has become more precise. This is the first comment we;ve had about the sentence being rejected. Usually, it says "You have a typo." and lets you move on.

The new course has the correct space, sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry, we need more information about what "did not work" to be able to reply.

Have translated this correctly into greek, but wrong, and cannot complete the lesson

So you must have had a mistake but we can't see what wrote. Did you make a REPORT? You should post a screenshot. Or a copy-paste of your sentence from the exercise.

See the other comments on this page for how to make a REPORT.

You will also not that there was an error in our sentence. We didn't have a space after the comma....πεσιμιστής,είναι . That might be the problem I have corrected it so try again.
