銀行はどこですか。

Anybody know why duolingo doesn't accept commonly used kanji as answers? It's driving me up a wall.

What's the difference between どこ and どちら?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sotnosen93

どこ asks about a specific location while どちら asks about direction.

Every other sentence they use an unnecessary "a" and yet I say "Where is a bank?" and THIS time it is wrong. Fml.

Still not accepted 10-28-18. Keep reporting it as "My answer should be correct."

銀行は何処ですか?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sotnosen93

However, not that 何処/どこ is generally written in kana, not kanji.

why is it sometimes doko and sometimes dochira - both being translated as "where"?

Read in another thread that どちら is closer to "which way" and has more to do with direction. どこ is a bit more literal to "where" and is location-based.

so why they don't accept as a correct answer "which way"
