Table tennis and ping-pong are the SAME ACTIVITY!!!!!!!!! This should not be counted as an error ! "Competition" and "match" are the same idea!!!!!! Kindly correct the code!!!!!!

We say ping pong in the US.

乒乓 even sounds like ping pong

Why do they turn this statement around like this? It works perfectly well in English to say it like it is said in Chinese:

"She has a table tennis match this weekend".

I don't understand the logic here. You don't have to reverse it.

I wrote, "she has a ping pong mach this weekend". This should be accepted, but listed as 'typo' (match -> mach).

Anybody having trouble with duo recognizing spoken sentences, as here?

Please fix all of the listening exercises so that 他 and 她 are accepted interchangeably! It's very frustrating being marked as wrong and having no way to report the error!

But he and she aren't the same…?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LightKnigh4

Competition is a better translation. It's quite uncommon and Strange to just have a match, like just one.

Cvon, if you date your posts it will help people know how ludicrously long it takes Duolingo to update there choices. It's not just cold they got to consult with the native speaker and put up a variety of choices. I have seen them eventually improve. When your hearts Get Low after they have ripped them out, go back and do review Hard Review pays two hearts. Remember it's free. I promise it's good preparation if you have plans to go to China and stay long enough to be immersed. Immersion is really the only way to learn the language but this is one of the best ways to prepare yourself to be able 2 dare to go.

02/09/22 "She has a table tennis match this weekend" doesn't work and I don't understand why?
