Ah, I forgot mmerikani was with a "k" not a "c". It would be nice to have it programmed to note spelling errors instead of getting it completely wrong

Not all wazungu are Americans! Would it be possible to alternate with 'I am British' as well as 'I am American'? Also I think British spellings should be acceptable e.g. British 'traveller' as well as American 'traveler'.

You must speak like the Mwalimu of Tanzania. Duolingo is only recognising "correct" KiSwahilli as spoken in DarEsSalam.
