"Il aime écouter la radio." is broken

In Verbes: Infinitifs 1, the exercise, "He likes to listen to the radio." does not accept "Il aime écouter la radio." even though it reports it as the accepted answer. The exercise is repeated over and over and over so it is impossible to pass the level.

It's an unnerving bug and it's been there for quite a while. I think tony said it was fixed in a discussion.
Anyway, to pass, try testing out of the skill.
Or, you can proceed to the next line of skills, "Verbs Past 2" here and do lessons with their direct URL:
First lesson: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/en/Verbs:-Past-2/1
Second lesson: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/en/Verbs:-Past-2/2
...
Once you finish the skill, you should be able to proceed further down the tree.

Also, do us a favor and tell the staff, again, that this is a blocking issue and needs to be fixed; submit a bug report here.

I filed a bug report and messaged Tony, as you suggested. Thanks for the workaround.

Thank you, centime.

I'm testing this bug in the incubator right now, but it takes about a day or two for the changes to be saved on the server side. And then I'll need to test it again to see if it works properly. This has happened before with another sentence, and it seems to work out in the end.

For right now, "Il apprécie d'écouter la radio" works as an accepted answer.

I'll give an update here on Thursday.

UPDATE: The exercise has been fixed.

I tested the exercise on our test account and on my personal account. All good. It seems I only have to wait a few hours for the system to save changes.

Hi Mila. I can't help you with the Portuguese course since I only do the French ones. Please visit the link below and state your problem to one of the Portuguese course contributors.

Or you can go straight to this man and tell him your problems.

I am having a problem with my duolingo where if i try to strengthen a subject it will give me points but will not turn gold or show completed. This is very discouraging and frustrating. I'm not sure where to input a trouble ticket.

Occasionally I get stuck on the same lesson (ie: 2/25) over & over, even though I get all the answers right. The only way to stop this cycle is to delete & reinstall the app. This only lasts for a short time when I'm stuck again
