clicking on caught shows an empty tool tip

Then report it. I dont think commenting (and upvoting said comment) does anything.

ひきました (hikimashita) is usually written in kana.

風邪をひきました, same thing. This is correct. yours is correct. It doesn't like the kanji on this one even though it's correct, which is inconvenient since my keyboard, when in Japanese, wants to change things to the kanji.

Why Hiku "to pull" was used here? Is it cultural?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ravi507280

ひく(hiku) also means to catch and it totally depend on context

Is ひく only used with かぜ? Or can it also be used for other types of diseases?

I'm only getting 2 exercises for this lesson, abd they don't cover the words in the overview. Is anyone else having this problem? (I'm reporting it anyway)

Is it like "caught the wind"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeChatParle

The cold is 風邪, and wind is 風


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Denis021299

This whole exercise consists of this sentence for me...anyone else with the same problem?

So saying わたしは before かぜをひきました is not correct?

It's not wrong, but also unnecessary/unsaid most of the time.
