Ordinal Numbers - Lesson 2

Most lessons have about 7 sentences, and requires you to get each one correct once to move on. This particular lesson seems to have about the same number of sentences, but requires you to get to about 17 correct answers (like with a strengthen exercise) to move on. Is something awry somewhere?

IMO the number skill is way too early and should be further down the tree (also they don't even accept answers using numbers)

I totally agree, they should let us type numbers, it's way easier and faster :) Also I guess it's quite early, and if Ukrainian was my 1st Slavic language, I'd be so confused :/ But it's great satisfaction when you get though all the numbers :D

It might be OK to type the numbers where English is required, but as the point is to learn the Ukrainian numbers ... (and no doubt some people do use it as a reverse tree to learn/improve their English).

My original comment doesn't relate to the cardinal numbers (1, 2, 3 etc) - which I think should come quite early as it is one of the things you need to know for basic communication - but to the ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd etc)

Ah, I mean typing English of course XD

Ah, I always mix them up XD Generally numbers aren't for me at all. Basic numbers yes, but to 100 max, not more, because then it's just confusing :/

В українській мові числа ще і відміняються: перший - першого - першому і так далі. Навіть самі українці іноді путаються.

I gave up at this point. This new version of Ukrainian is just too hard especially translating into Ukrainian. I want to enjoy learning a language!

I find the number skill in Ukrainian to be all about money.
