Duolingo teaches Latin American spanish, and they say papa. But in spain you would say patata

Would that be Latin American Spanish or Spanish spoken in Spain

In Spain, a potato is "patata", in Latin America, a potato is "papa". Since Duolingo teaches Latin American Spanish, "papa" is used, rather than "patata".

In Andalucía and Canarias we also say "papa".

Since this post is about the Spanish course, could you move it to the Spanish forum? More of the people who are interested in Spanish will see it there, and it will help keep this forum easy to navigate for those who aren't currently studying Spanish.

Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to Spanish. Here's a guide on how to move a post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16609773.

Thanks :)
