Thanks for that clarification. I think Duolingo doesn't do a good job distinguishing the LARGE vs small characters, I couldn't tell the difference at all. In reality I'm sure that when actually reading handwritten Japanese that wouldn't be the case. I like Duolingo but the fact they attempt to teach such a language with ZERO anecdotes or grammatical explanation is asinine. You MUST Supplement with other material or you WILL fail. Thanks for ppl like you. Bye.
