What to substitute on the keyboard for German characters
How do I type sweet in German. Duolingo does not recognize anything I try.
Perhaps you could try a single 's' or a double 'ss'. If that doesn't work and you can't find the icon as mentioned in Captain_Duo 's comment then you could try adding German as a keyboard on your desktop, tablet or phone... The easiest way to do that is to Google your specific device and how to 'add keyboard' or 'add keyboard language'. If you do add German onto your keyboard then you'll be able to use all the characters necessary for typing in German. Hope this has been helpful. Good luck xx
What device are you on? I downloaded the German keyboard for my phone, and Duolingo automatically changes to that keyboard when I need to type in German, and back to English when I need to type in English. The only character it doesn't have standard is the ß. For that, I just hold down the S key on the keyboard and I can choose it as an option.
