"Pandas like sleeping."

    When is 很 required? When the word "very" would appear?


    It is because English pandas like it, whilst Chinese pandas like it very much.

    Well, not funny…


    I would say it is not required. But 很 is weird character in this course because sometimes it is used to emphasize what that you like something, and other times not. Duolingo don't seem to be very clear about this.

    I think the answer should be "Panda's really like sleeping" or Pandas like sleeping very much".

    In other parts of the course they use 喜欢 without the 很

    Like 我喜欢喝咖 for example.
