I couldn't tell if the computer was saying "ni" or "mi"... That didn't seem fair..

Hi, please use the button to report problems. The course creators don't read every comment to every sentence discussion, but they do get the reports. That said, Duolingo uses a TTS (text to speech) engine and many times there is nothing the course contributors can do about audio issues. Thanks!

In English, 'neither nor' go together and 'either or' go together, but they can be separated sometimes. Neither is the negative.Either is the positive. example: Negative: I eat neither chicken nor fish. Positive: I eat either chicken or fish.

Good

"He is not your friend neither mine" is terrible to say?

Correct Ex3mity. That's not how it would be said in English.

Can anyone explain to me why "tu" doesn't have an accent in this sentance? I have noticed that it does sometime and doesn't others but I cannot figure out the distinction. Any help is appreciated thanks!

Yes my answer was marked incorrectly 'He's neither your nor my friend' which I'm guessing should have been 'He's neither your friend nor my friend' but I was corrected to 'He's neither your bud nor my friend.'
