Translation:The coffee here is not expensive.

Different word order in English can express the same meaning. Starting the sentence with 'Here the coffee' creates an equivalent sentence to 'The coffee here . . .' The Duolingo experience has been great for me so far. I have found, however, that time is wasted because of the over-strict approach to English translations in the Chinese module. Hopefully, they can improve it a bit for all of us.
English is flexible. We know that the sentence "Here, the coffee is . .. " and "The coffee here is . .. " are equivalent. My Duolingo experience has been great so far. I hope the Duolingo staff can improve the Chinese tool to allow for the flexibility of English syntax. Perhaps that will come with a bit more time. Also, it would be great if they could add pronunciation testing. Any news on that?
