"I read the letter."
Yeah, they desperately need furigana, at least as pop-ups. It would make remembering kanji pronunciations so much easier. As someone who's known kana for most of their life, kanji is a whole different animal. Even with furigana, I think perhaps Duo may not be the ideal place to learn kanji (i.e. radicals), but it would certainly help a lot.
Agreed with the above. Furigana at least. This is just a strength card and not only does it contain kanji that havent appeared in previous excersizes but there is no way to know how they are pronounced... I can dummy away until i get the right answer and know what the kanji represents but i have no hooe of speaking it...
I don't understand the kanji used for 'reading'. In previous exercises they used a single kanji which is also used in the solution here. But the only thing i can pick is a double kanji with no spelling attached that I've never seen before so... what gives? Duolingo is super inconsistent with kanji at times. :(
Flagged the english sentence as unnatural, mostly due to the fact that read/read has caught up many people, but also the duolingo Japanese course seems to consistently prefer "I verb the thing" instead of "I will verb the thing". It feels really unnatural in comparison to irl Japanese classes, where ます form is mostly taught as future-tense, hopefully this course uses て form at some point for something other than 住んでいます.
Duo you marked me wrong for reading the English sentence as past tense and putting "てがみを読みました” as my answer. I am a b s o l u t e l y right! In English this is confusing unless you can hear what's being said, but if you're gonna use words like read that are the same for present and past tense, PLEASE accept either, otherwise you make me look stupid and I'm already stupid enough as it is >:( .
