"I go to a bank."
Isn't the correct particle here へ instead of に since I am going to a place rather than being at a place?
に for going explicitly TO a place, へ for going TOWARDS a place, such that it may not be your actual destination or you are making other stops.
I believe for purpose of indicating direction both へ and に are interchangeable.
Ginko ni - are you going to the postoffice? I'm going to the bank. ( Emphasis on bank) Ginko e - is just I'm going to the bank. ( According to a native Japanese.)
This lesson appears to consist of only two sentences : 銀行にいきます and 病院に行きます. The vocab promised is not delivered and I have never seen a lesson on duo with only two sentences before. How do I report this ? (I repeated the lesson but it keeps happening and I got full xp each time )
In my college Japanese courses, they specifically taught us to use へ for sentences like 銀行__行きます。I was told that に works as well, but in class we only ever used に for things like time.
I'm not saying that Duolingo is wrong, only that there seems to be a lot of variation in how Japanese is taught in various places.
If you get stuck on a loop just repeat the lesson and the loop will be gone
