"He said no."
This was a really stupid set up... when would you ever put together はい いえ to say は いいえ at least let the particles stand alone
Yeah I was totally confused like I knew the answer but the options weren't there
YES! Thank you. We are actively trying to learn this not get confused. This seemed like a direct attempt at misleading the user.
There are more and more mistakes those days, it feels like they included those on purpose maybe for testing the app. If thats the case thats really stupid thanks for misleading us
They didn't want to record extra lines is my guess. although I'm pretty sure they already used いいえ earlier in the course so that doesn't make complete sense either. Still really obnoxious.
The way this is cut up, you end up having to use "yes" to say "no". Cute.
I personally like that kind of cards, because you cant make your answer from pre-made set of words, you need to actually think and use your knowledge.
Yeah. They want Duo to make it easy for them. So they don't have to think. If only learning a new language was easy!
This would be clearer with quotation marks around いいえ, like so:
Also, it marked me wrong for using the kanji for 彼（かれ）. I've reported it.
Here, と is used as a particle for quoting the いいえ as what he said.
と points to what the subject is saying (or thinking in the case of 思う (おもう)).
Whoever broke up this sentence did a terrible job. If they can't fix it, they should remove it.
This is a really aggravating setup even if its intentional. Try explaining to a new learner that it doesnt say "He yes house". Thats needlessly misleading.
かれは「いいえ」と言いました was not accepted. Duo should ignore the 「」like it does other punctuation
As many other comments have said, this one is really misleading. Instead of the words being "は" and "いいえ", they put "はい" and "いえ" which is ridiculously stupid because it means something completely different.
