Translation:The food is very delicious

The translation is really incorrect. To say the same thing correctly, it's just "The food is too delicious."
I think the farther you get into the course, the fewer learners there are to give them feedback. So the errors multiply. Progressing through the lessons becomes an exercise in memorizng atrocious "correct" answers.
Thank you. I agree. I am new to learning Swahili. The above translation by DUO does not lead me to a pleasant learning experience. Having users memorize "atrocious" / correct" answers": "Is this DUO's "best way to learn a language"?
The best is am able to do with a translation of "chakula kitamu mno" is "too much ("mno") sweet ("kitamu") /// food ("chakula"). Too much sweet food. The Swahili Practical Dictionary by Nicholas Awde defines "mno" as (1. "too much" or 2."extremely"). Both "mno" and "kitamu" seem to relate to the qualities of the noun "chakula" in this situation.
Please accept my apology if I am not correct on the above comments. I am new to the Swahili language and my native language (American English) skills are rusty.
So, we have the exact same sentence twice - with different translations accepted as answers for each. And, by the way, this one translation is false.
Awful unacceptable English...again! It's not the Swahili that's difficult to remember, it's the acceptable translation according to the programme...grrrrrrrrrr!
The verb is missing. Therefore the correct translation is: very delicious food.
That is exactly what I keep reporting them, but they just don't fix it. Today is January 21st 2022
very tasty food accepted as translation. This is more correct than the official translation.
Ok, that's a joke, cause I just typed "the food is much too sweet" and it erred to "the food is much too delicious". Talk about moving Target
How did you solve the moving target problem? It is the second time I don't manage to finish this section because there is none of my answers accepted?
The food is delicious or the food is very delicious would be correct in English.
