Just Dulingo's robotic pronunciations. Unless they change it, listening skills are not going to improve

Why is it an("the" was not accepted) intersection

July 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/michael.fe4

I think "the" should be accepted, so I'd say report it. However, without any other context I feel like "a" is a bit more natural. "The" implies you were already talking about it or something.

By intersection, they just mean crossroads, right?

July 13, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Tara_han

Turns out it will accept 'crossing', I guess that will do.

That's what I'm assuming.

It would have been worse without the text, just like in other Duolingo languages. Japanese is no different. Sounds can sound like similar ones and without the text it may get confusing.

The intonation is way off, they should get a real human voice for it. And make sure it is spoken by a native speaker.
