Does it not bother anyone else that these exercises are not explicitly telling us what the Chinese words/symbols represent numerically? Other than maybe one or two exercises where you can click on the symbol to see what number it represents???
yup, you are right. it should be said as 八元 (eight dollars), and NOT something like 八“個”元。
According to Chinese Wikipedia (and Google's rough translation): Eight Yuan refer to "Biefen, Zhongkan, Shu Xian, Ji Zhong, Bohu, Zhongxiong, tertiary leopard, seasonal beaver". According to historical records, they were the "witches" of the emperors. https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%85%AB%E5%85%83
but the yuan in the case that you looked up has a different meaning to it. same words can have different meanings. 元 used on its own meaning, is dollar
Wikipedia is also not the most reliable source. somethings on there are just nonsense.
you have to put the translation in the Chinese words and after these explanation of the chinese words the exercise, now you have to pick up the translation in the excercises, so maybe there is someone at duolingo to help people how to do that, so people will learn it more quickly. They are not educators but very helpful for us with their excellent knowledge of the chinese language, and we are very grateful for that!!
Again only one choice! Put some effort into the multiple choice questions. Or ARE you wasting people's time on purpose?
It's repetition learning. It doesnt matter how many answers thereare. It's conditioning you to associate the words.
Noel435839, if you're talking about Duolingo then you have it all wrong. They try to help us.
I felt confused at first also but then I tapped the light bulb that comes up at the beginning of each lesson. It took me to a short overview of the numbers.
I use google translate to learn the words since duolingo isn't telling me what the characters mean!
I have to say I think there should be an additional exercise earlier on for context on these numbers. Also, numbers are sequential so having some structure would be nice!
