That doesn't work. When we use neither/nor and either/or, we need to use a parallel construction. In your suggested sentence, the construction is not parallel. Compare:
"I have neither a wife nor children." -- We are "equating" two things (wife vs. children).
"I neither have a wife, nor do I want one." -- We are "equating" two actions (having vs. wanting).
"I neither have a wife, nor children." -- The "equation" is flawed (having vs. children).
Well, sort of. There are Tips & Notes for many Skills in this course, mainly for the earlier skills. They are gradually being added for later Skills, but as the Skills get more complex, fitting a lot to say into the relatively little bit of space that Duo provides is challenging. (IMO, where they exist, they are excellent!)
IMPORTANT: The Tips ARE NOT currently available IN THE APPS, but only in a browser (desktop and mobile).
To find them, click on the circle for the Skill that interests you. If T&N are available, there will be a clickable bar marked "Tips." Click on that, and you should be good to go.
