I could have easily just cheated to find out that "achteenduizend" was misspelled... but I try what I think and lose the entire question. You really need a "MY ANSWER SHOULD BE ACCEPTED" on these "type what you hear" because you are kicking back some for the most ridiculously petty reasons and THAT is precisely why people give up. I am having this kind of difficulty on NONE of my other language courses!

That would be pointless.

Accepted answers are added by hand, by volunteers. There is no way we can add typos or incorrect spelling by hand. Jeez, it's hard enough to add all the correct ones!

If other courses are indeed more lenient, then I've no idea how they manage that.
