I can't hear the 〇


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LBoksha

Seems to be a bug. Wanted to report it, but it just gives the "there's something wrong with this exercise" option, which I don't think helps the course admins much...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MelissaShould

I reported it using the flag icon


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AdTL18

Seems to be working now when hovering over it, as of May 2020. Thank you to Duo!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Qwynnyx

It's not really a Chinese character but it's used widely in dates, being pronounced "líng" in Pinyin.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LBoksha

That's great, but the thing is the líng sound doesn't play. At all. The audio just sounds like "Èr. Yīqīnián shíèryuè èrshíyīhào". There's just a short pause where the líng should go.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NathanH18

I don't find that that happens


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nina10682

Maybe this sentenced is made to stop our progress....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimonIoann1

Something is really wrong with this one!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/manu_kaushik4

Same is the case here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eoin790683

The 0 still not fixed, one year on...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DOCTOREHRIN

Still broken in June 2020, or as the app would say, 二二年


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/P.ep.e
  • 1200

You mean 二二十年 ;-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YaraMartin577614

Yes, I reported it for being unclear and not hearing the 〇.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sven658393

A native Beijing speaker tells me they have missed the audio zero out. July 2020. Seems they are too busy with riots in the US to fix this up.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/P.ep.e
  • 1200

The 220 riots!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FacundoGuzman

It's not about the riots. The green bird is lazy. It didn't updated the Chinese lesson since it was created. Also, it is greedy. It tries to steal your hearts so you pay the premium version which is extremely expensive.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stephen847223

"The green bird greedily steals your hearts through its lack of zero"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Svetlana0777

Still the same problem...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ekokepe

13 Feb 2021. It's pronounced as líng.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FluffyRainbowOne

Still can't, August 2020


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KevinAbel13

The same on Sept 2020


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RocoRubioR

Still can't - November 2020.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DarknessOf2

Whoa! Just like a tongue twister!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JGreene68356

It's so fast, lol. Please add a turtle button. If i cover the written version i have no clue what he said, haha.... Please put the turtle button on people too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TMBurn02

Even the turtle button is not very helpful because the characters are pronounced together. It does not give me more time to recognize the character they are speaking before moving on to the next one.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FaroukRizki

Yeah, it's so fast that I had to replay it multiple times, hahaha


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/christina847912

Is there a way to pass this?>< I have tried so many times, but can not manage to pass this


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ju-carolina

Ikr, I had to replay it 5 times


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Renikpintu

Woa, i have been trying it for half an hour already but still couldn't pass.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Remwhy

The voice is WAY too fast.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/James917737

I have spoken this as slowly as possible, character by character. Do just doesn't recognize the numbers.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FaroukRizki

I think the speaking exercise is broken, I'll report it next time.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mike463258

You can pass the speaking task if you leave out the 0. "er yi qi nian..."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LyndyR

Oh thanks for this, I'll try it next time! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cor.nina

I tried this a couple times and then had my friend try it who is from China, still doesnt recognize the numbers so its definitely broken


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wojiaoyangyi

I put 21/12/2017 and was marked wrong. Will report.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Azmik_Arkotsi

I put 12/21/2017 and it was still wrong, so it's not the order so much as they'd rather you write out the answer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lsmith622914

I put 21 December 2015 and it was marked correct


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Iwilleatyouall

I wrote 21st of December 2015 and it was marked incorrect.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AfafaAzaza

Why say 2015 when the text says 2017?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Iwilleatyouall

Erm... yeah. 2017. I mean, I think "21st of December 2017" was marked incorrect, and I think lsmith 622914 is saying "21 December 2017" was marked correct.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomTuek2

21st of December 2017 is correct now...


[deactivated user]

    12/12/2017 may be correct of course


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aki_999

    It seems this hasnt been fixed for a year. The pronunciations are not being recognized. I even got my native chinese friend to say it and still wont recognize. (This comment posted 1/28/2021)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vikingboi88

    Same here. It only picks up the first Er, Nian, Yue and Hao. Not enough to pass so not sure how to get last this...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lollidrell

    It only registers "er, nian, yue, hao" when I speak, no matter how clear I say it or how many times I do it. I'm not the best at Chinese but this I at least know


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Javierojase

    Same with me, this exercise does not work right...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ToinhoAlam

    I think I figured out why this happens. Probably Duolingo relies on the phone audio recongition software, which writes dates like this: 2017年12月21号. I spoke here while commenting and it recognized perfectly, but Duolingo wants to get the chinese numbers instead of the arabic ones.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chewenya7707

    2017년12월27일 이 문구 문제점 아시는분 계시나요? 왜 틀렸다고 하는지 도저히 알수가 없네요


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hxuanmin

    So how will we pronounce a circle here?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matt_Maguire

    Sound be líng (零)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/elarse1

    It would be nice if Duolingo would actually say the "ling." I've been reporting it repeatedly. Maybe it's a "silent ling?" Hahahaha


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DuoK20

    I can't here the sound 'ling' at all.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DuoK20

    It seems Duolingo forgot to concatenate the sound file '零'


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fatschnaus

    Finally there is the sound file for 零 or 〇 (líng)! 二〇一九年八月五号


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Giorgio182480

    Maybe they thought this circle should have zero sounds attached to it!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jing635360

    The answer assumes American date ordering


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/roman2095

    21st December 2017 is also accepted, although with that order I would normally add "of" before December in Australia


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AfafaAzaza

    I added "of" and it was wrong so....


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Azmik_Arkotsi

    The assumed type of English is American English, which should be obvious by the flag they used.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomTuek2

    No, the English here is Chinglish as it's assumed because it does not use st and many previous answers following Chinese grammar


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/angelehema

    I'm definitely saying it correctly and it's not accepting the answer.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nicholas372101

    It's doing that for me to!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/trwagner22

    It's not accepting my pronunciation literally no matter how perfect it is. I give it to my Chinese friend and it still says the pronunciation is wrong. I have a same problem on tons of these date ones.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sssserpens.caput

    This speaking exercise is so broken. My pronunciation is usually good & I spoke it into Google translate a few times and was understood perfectly, yet I've gotten this one wrong probably 15 times and always in the exact same way. Something about the audio file is not matching


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lodus2

    There really could stand to be some more variety in the dates they ask you to translate!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shawn269977

    I can't hear chinese“0”sound


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NenadLihtar

    It doesn't recognize speaking, all the way gives negative score


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jorgos010

    Why is “零” not accepted as zero? It is the original character after all...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Salom_psylang

    Yes, it should be accepted, I reported it


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Victor955283

    Rubbish! The correct character 40 comet when quoting a date only, is 0


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Victor955283

    Nonsense. The correct hanzi for zero in quoting a date is O. Don't try to tell the Chinese how they should be writing their language!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Victor955283

    Rubbish! The correct character when quoting a year date, is 0. Please don't try to instruct the Chinese how to write their language!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MichaelZin102282

    It never understands when I speak this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JACQU3LIN3

    Me neither. It's maddening.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/badwolfnorth

    Answered "2017-12-21" which is the normal way to write it in Canadian English. It should be accepted.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Agamgad

    Please take all types of ordering, not all of us can remember the American one...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xangai2

    The 0 in 2017 is not pronounced in chinese, it is spoken wrong and very irritating.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cat424683

    did not hear the "zero" at all!! heard 217 not 2017


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bonsai699530

    Didn't allow time to finish saying the phrase


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bdoit

    Doesn't register correctly


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tra193390

    I cant seem to pronounce the numbers correctly and get marked wrong every time, is there a trick to this? I listen to the audio and try to replicate it but perhaps its my scottish accent.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Suzan325964

    I got it "incorrect" every time. Not sure how else I am to pronounce this sentence. So frustrating.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cloudy342526

    I don't know why I said many times in correct voice but it's accepted. Take much times for this one.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DerekMoore0987

    As of July 2019 the voice recording moves so fast for a beginner that I can't speak quickly enough.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dan331868

    Even on the slow setting I cannot hear the "ling".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/luris_azimut

    "2017-12-21" (the ISO standard) could be accepted


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SkarmoutsosV

    "2017 December 21st" is accepted.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/the1best

    they are talking american order, which is "12/21/2017"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/badwolfnorth

    In normal English it's different. They should accept the standard format.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Studosaurus

    They should accept all formats. Just because one is your standard doesn't make it so for every learner. That being said, 2017/12/21 is 12/21/2017 is 21st of December, 2017 no matter how people enter it


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ooutz

    And when I wrote 21st of December 2017 it was not accepted


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LabanJohns

    I wonder if anyone who did this lesson on December 21, 2017 got freaked out :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shana_deanne

    December 21st 2017 was not accepted


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zhenyi_b

    The voice recognition of numbers seems to be broken. I have tried having Google Translate read the given date to Duolingo (using two phones). Diolingo said that google translate pronounced the numbers as poorly as I did.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ShadowOfTheHero

    there are so many options to write the same date (and they are all correct, actually!), and it is really silly from the side of moderators not to give us the example how we should write it down to answer correct. How you guys suppose us to guess? There's no telepaths on this planet yet. )))


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Louis432968

    I lost 8 hearts on this...LOL. fix please!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D0cp9

    I am sure I am saying it right but it keeps saying it's wrong!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HuyTruongD2

    Please tell me how to say correct this sentence, i lost so many hearts, but never pass. Should i give up this app?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JonathanRe72133

    Just got a Chinese native to say this and it was still wrong


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nadia915629

    There is an error for sure


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GcJv198140

    In my case, the correct ones are always: 二,年,月,号. The rest was stated to be wrong... As in, always. More than 15x now


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Renfield4

    Since the sound file for the 零 seems to be broken, try not to speaking the "Ling" . Worked for me in some cases. It was still marked wrong, but the sentence got accepted eventually. Good luck.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StephenLiu5

    I don't know if its just my bad pronunciation, but it's almost impossible to pass the speaking exercise for this. It keeps telling me I said the numbers wrong.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nicholas372101

    It's a glitch with the speech recognition. It's not supposed to do that. Native speakers have tried saying it and it still doesn't work.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Don-o

    Even my Chinese Wife doesn’t get this right


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrEricSZ

    Ok I don't feel so bad now. Definitely seems a bug.

    21.12.2017 Why wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cat424683

    did not hear 2017! "zero" was not heard. The slower version of the audio is terrible too; does not help.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/richardbeeson

    a very philosophical point - can you hear nothing ?? !!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SusanEWigg

    Gave the correct answer! Told me it was not!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mirlan413152

    Even on the slow setting, the two syllables "shi er" sound like one, "shar". Confused me. Is this how a native speaker would say 12?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Renfield4

    "er shi" is also very fast and sounds like the german word for a..hole. now I can't speak the sentence without grinning and Duo doesn't recognize what I am saying. lol.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NicholasKe772594

    It's a glitch with the speech recognition. Hopefully they fix it within the next decade.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kathrynmersey

    I think so, I assume it's like 哪儿 (na er - na'r) or 一点儿 (yi dian er - yi dia'r)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarioSpinaJr

    This one seems mot to work correctly


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChrissyShae

    um there is a problem with this one.....


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/E_Anonymous

    Im having trouble saying this. Could you make a slow mode for how they say it pls?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EunHun2

    Its not working


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaulaBaciu0

    For some reason it just won't take my recording...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Javierojase

    Dear Duolingo Team: please fix this exercise.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DinoPirate

    It can't expect my answer whenever I pronounce the numbers. And I know I'm saying them right because my mom is a native speaker.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/8GxtWr8j

    Tongue twister that won't accept any answer I give it


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EileenBrumby

    Bad speaking exercise, refuses to recognize most of the sounds regardless of the speed I speak.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rowie67

    The program would not even except the answer even when said by my chinese wife


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zbevan

    It could at least give a beginner time to say it...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HuyTruongD2

    I never pass this sentence, why this part so difficult, should i give up duolinguo


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SimonWhite1

    I get that we need to adapt to their normal speaking speed, but is this really normal?

    The speaker doesn't seem to stop for breath or give any indication that separate words are being said here...

    Itsoundsliketalkingwithoutspacesorpunctuation!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Forying

    The app cannot hear or capture this sentence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hayleyharriss

    However i tried it seems not recording me saying


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LucyXue1

    Same for me, and I'm a native speaker. Seems this exercise is having some issues.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SFYiu

    Still broken. No matter how I pronounced the date, the same mistake. E.g I purposely didn't say 2, just 017, it still returned with 2 highlighted, that means it detected the sound of 2 but missed everything else.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knackknack1

    I cant trigger the numbers while speaking it only recognizes the first one and thevwords for year month and day need like 10 trys to triger just one more to pass speaking slowly doesnt work eather


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knackknack1

    I cant trigger the numbers while speaking it only recognizes the first one and thevwords for year month and day need like 10 trys to triger just one more to pass

    I cant trigger the numbers while speaking it only recognizes the first one and thevwords


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JACQU3LIN3

    This is maddening. I just cant get it right and it wont let me move on. Theres something wrong with the voice recognition i think.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Veronika961049

    It's 27 May 2021, still not fixed yet :(


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zenny35

    This exercise feels like a waste of time, literally. I've attempted and failed it twice (six recording attempts total) because it won't accept the way I pronounce the numbers ("year", "month", and "day" are the only ones marked green/correct), even though I've be practicing with the recording for almost 20 minutes. I honestly believe this is impossible to get right, maybe unless you're a native Chinese speaker. Has anyone managed to get perfect on this?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IsmaelGarc546179

    No matter if I read it correct or not. It always marks three words like the only ones I have pronounced


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Teeto2870483

    Okay so what the heck I said this like 3 times and it said i got it wrong even though I was saying it exactly the way the voice was


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nicholas372101

    There's some kind of bug where it just doesn't work, even if you say it properly.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lucasatos92

    Not only this lesson is full of bugs, it also uses a calendar that is not used in China


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nicholas372101

    Yeah, it's really too bad that even though I say it properly, it says "Let's move on from this one for now."


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SWIr7H

    I think I say it in the right way in several times, but I still not pass this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrEricSZ

    No matter how many times i try on this one, it never accepts my answer. I believe my tones are correct


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eiei6638

    I try that many time. But i can,t pronunce that. How can i do that


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trang199818

    I can not say rightly this sentence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Blaskkaffe

    I wrote 2017-12-21 which is both ISO standard, the most common way to write in Europe AND the EXACT way and order that the chinese date is witten... Please fix it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MalBrood

    is that how you would translate it? two thousand seventeen hyphen twelve hyphen twenty one.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dan331868

    This one above in the discussion board, the woman's voice, the "ling" is clearly pronounced. In the lesson, the man's voice, there is no "ling".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Suppremer

    My tongue had never been twisted than ever


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YaraMartin577614

    It was really unclear to me what the voice was saying, and in other languages it is hard to hear a certain word.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WmXx13

    I couldn't hear the character líng


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Spree610

    Liang is not being said


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OommenPhil

    Can't hear properly. No ling sound.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/e3CGBmUK

    Still cannot hear the zero


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ninja-strike

    Can't hear the ○ and too fast too hear most of it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cameron2710

    Don't Chinese just use the traditional Western number system?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mab615805

    Literal translation: 2017 year, 12 month, 21 date, then one may easely translate into which ever format one prefer to express the date...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DenisePort421909

    There's a problem with this exercise it doesn't seem to recognize my voice I've been trying for a few days now


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lesleyannen

    If you listen carefully, the "ling" is in there - it just elides with "yi" and is quite fast. THAT is not the problem with this exercise. I asked a native speaker to try and pass the spoken version of the problem and even their answers were not accepted! No matter how we said it as we recorded, no matter how fast or slow, the app marked all the numbers as incorrect and only accepted our audio for "nian" "yue" and "hao." Duo needs to either fix this exercise or remove it!!! Super annoying!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zharl1

    What is wrong here?!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nativecubed

    二零一七年 is not accepted. Are we not supposed to use the character for ling? Do we have to use the circle?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SarahHoit

    Still can't get it "correct" in my pronunciation. Only 二,年,月, and 号 are accepted. Must have done this 20+ times.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mike463258

    This is clearly bugged, but you can pass the speaking task if you leave out the 0. Skip 0 but say everything else and it will detect just enough words for you to pass.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mike463258

    For the speaking task, you can pass it if you just leave out the 0. Say everything except the 0 and it will detect enough words for you to pass


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HurhurYoun

    LOL. Just spam all the different characters quickly in any random order and try to get as many to be highlighted blue (indicating it is correct). I could get the first 2, 7, nian, yue, 2, and hao to be highlighted and that let me pass. Phew.

    Yes, all of us. Numbers are the weak spot of Google STT (speech-to-text). This will not get fixed anytime soon. When I see number-heavy speech exercises, just click to turn off microphone for that lesson.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NathanRasm

    "Falsehoods programmers believe about time" includes "Human-readable dates can be specified in universally understood formats such as 05/07/11," because that is a falsehood. People use a crapton of different date formats. And also, the American date format is, speaking as an American, incredibly stupid. Allow a wide variety of formats including several good ones, or use dropdown lists to answer this question.

    Why won't a proper way to write out a date (with just numbers) be recognised?

    It's not that difficult, I'd think dd/mm/yyyy dd-mm-yyyy

    Maybe in the lesson overview a short note should be added about which ways to write out a date will be recognised and which won't be. It would be helpful to avoid getting unjust mistakes

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomTuek2

    Wrong English among others.

    Mainly because Duolingo is (correctly) teaching you here that the order in mandarin is different to that in English and to push the point it expects you to change the order to see that you have realized it. In English and to mine knowledge in Russian/Ukrainean you would usually start from day, followed by month and then year. (There is a month then day exception in certain circumstances, but even in those you can use day month order, and that still uses year at the end). Although if you stress importance of the day with "the" then it would be "21st". But mostly because of the mine first point. Yes Duolingo has got frequent mistakes in English being Chinglish in this course, but this isn't one of them


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DuduF1971

    You have to consider 21th

    There's a bug when it comes to recognizing and matching numbers. What I did to get past this was I just kept saying the words until I got most of them to light up. For example just keep repeating the unlit words over and over while it's recording. eventually you'll get enough words to pass.

    This as a speaking exercise immediately ruins whatever lesson streak I had going. It never recognizes anything I say after the first líng and if I don't want to get dinged then I have to say each individual character very clearly and separately (and usually the speaking timer whatever cuts me off really quickly) and that defeats the purpose of the exercise which is to say them in rapid fluent-ish succession.

    Also the turtle button would really help, please and thanks.

    I answered this numerous times, it just doesn't pick up ling, or any of ghe numbers for that matter


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MsASpider

    I was stopped here for a long time .. Zzzz


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Citi93758

    It sounds as if they say Li instead of ling


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jaques909215

    It needs to either give you more time or more attempts. Actually reading the characters out first try takes longer that just blindly repeating the sound of the sentence.

    Please fix this question, it's virtually impossible to pass. It doesn't register the audio input properly.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrunoSorri2

    This exercise is wrong, even when a native Chinese read the numbers, still wrong answer


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IytB12

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NoahChanBorg

    Guys what the heck


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NoahChanBorg

    I've been trying over and over again, the audio never got accepted to matter how well I said it. I even resorted to recording the audio and playing it back, guess what, duolingo doesn't even register it's own audio, hahaha


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/blair.mcna

    I couldnt pass this, neither could my chinese wife or mother in law. Then I recorded the voice and it couldnt pass so this is definately broken


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vu3YhP

    It does not realize my voice


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gizzet.

    Difficult to say it


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DNTMD

    I say the numbers but doesnt seem to register themy?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DNTMD

    I can't get the audio portion to pass no matter how many times I try. I just turn off my microphone to get past this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mark86589

    Its not happening for me, been fairly good on all the others, definitely a problem with this one.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jenny3105

    I repeated several time but still cant pass this test.. Why?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Malou972

    This exercice doesn't work !!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HenrikSchf1

    It also doesn't seem to be able to hear the "ling" in the speaking exercise.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasArtu1

    I had a native Chinese speaker try it 3 times with different speeds and it did not pass


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mild588228

    Still the same problem


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John79096

    This is so broken, ive gotten this perfect and my wife says she fully understands heni say this sentence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ed.farr.out

    This sticks me in an infinite Loop showing the exact same mistakes every time and never allowing me out of the exercise. This has happened before. This exercise should be cut from the lesson


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NenadLihtar

    I understand you...just keep going, leave this, it is not worthy of your time, rather practice other things...

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HelenPorcini

    I can't pass this lesson no matter how perfect I pronounce it. I'm a native Chinese speaker who wants to practice reading, and I checked my pronouciation on Google Translate too


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayneRober116234

    Total failure, i could try a hundred times and not oass this


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Swords_again

    I've tried this over and over and it doesn't recognize most of the characters. How I've gotten around it is repeatedly fire off as many syllables as you can in any order. Keep talking until they all light up blue.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wilma566016

    There is a bug. It seems it is not recording properly? Kindly look into this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wilma566016

    Last portion has bug.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jparsonsfilm

    13feb2022, Feels like the software got worse. Uaually i cam power through these by just repeating the words over and over. Even after repeating "二" for several minutes it only recognized the first one..

    When do we learn the swear words?

    The date of 21 december 2017 in Mandarin is always said wrong by me according this program. I tried more then a 1000 times. And all the other sentences are allright!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jisun937460

    I even recorded the original script and played it to check if I was really doing it wrong. Well, it still says there's something wrong with it..


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexSingle88

    I thought there were no circles in chinese...?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/white_pony

    Why it says I'm saying wrong when i really did say it correctly.. i said it 9 continuous times.. still says hmm.. that doesn't sound good. Try again


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavidCorba5

    "December the twenty-first 2017" should be accepted. There are so many different ways of putting this in English, but I think it's possible for the answers to include all of them.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RaymondCli3

    It says February in the sentence but December in the answer


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Richard30914

    no I think it says December 十二月


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bernardo84499

    No, you guys screwed up. Listen to it.

    "21th" incorrect ?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Iwilleatyouall

    Yes it's incorrect. Should be 21st. No one says "twenty-oneth." They say "twenty-first."

    Dec 21 2017 not accepted. Weak, Duolingo, weak.
