Translation:My math is not good. I am afraid of Wednesday's test.
"My mathematics is not good. I'm afraid of wednesday's exam" SHOULD BE ACCEPTED!
Should also accept "My maths is not good. I'm afraid of Wednesday's test."
Agree, as often the good translation is dismissed and some some marginal variety is the right answer. It is the worst with Asian languages and it is more and more annoying.
It's true but that's in principal why we're all here during the beta phase to help the Duolingo team fix all these issues before it's released as a proper course.
It's most annoying when you do diligently report issues and they're still not fixed months later. Hopefully this one won't suffer from that problem.
Exactly – no complaining without first reporting. Duolingo is an awesome service after all. That said, I've reported so many errors in this course, but after several months only one has been fixed.
Yet another example of the crazy English in this app... "My maths is not good I'm afraid of the test on Wednesday" IS A CORRECT TRANSLATION IN CASE YOU GUYS MISSED IT!
It should accept that but also as a beta user you should accept that beta users are here to help report all the problems and get the course fixed.
But there should also be a reasonable amount of basic possible translations before the beta version is made available. For some sentences, it seems there is only one unique acceptable answer. Courses shouldn't be released too early.
"My math is not good. I'm afraid of Wednesday's exam." should be accepted.
Also, I'm not sure why people are translating "math" as "maths". That just sounds strange to this native English speaker especially with "is" placed after a plural noun (i.e., "My maths is…").
I'd also never expect to see the formal word "mathematics" written in this informal statement even though one person suggested it.
British people abbreviate it to "maths" and Americans to "math". Both should be accepted.
I had correct solution: "..on the holidays" - this doesn't work. It should be "in" the holidays.
This is a diabolical translation - a significant amount more English translations should be allowed.
My maths/math/mathematics is not good... I'm not very good at math/maths/mathematics... etc...
This lesson is ridiculous. Have to report every question and copy-paste the answer...
