I think it's a shame that "Do you often go walking?" isn't accepted

'Do you go for a walk often' should be accepted

Do you often go walking? - not accepted (I really don't understand why)

This sentence is just messed up. I tried about a half dozen variations on 'Do you often go walking?' (including most of the perfectly acceptable ones listed in other comments), which were all rejected with increasingly gibberish English suggestions given instead.

I think it is interesting that in this translation they have "you all" for "ihr". In a different lesson, I was marked incorrect for using "you all" when they showed "ihr".

I think its a shame you can't tell whether its 'er' or 'ihr' that is being said.

Unfortunately, they just sound very similar. You will have to tune your ear to German and to the different lines it draws between different sounds.

How come "Do yall walk often?" is not accepted, but something extremely foreign as "Do yall walk many times?" is.......?

"You all" is not standard English, even if it is widely used in parts of the U.S. For Duo to use "Do you all often go for a walk" as the best answer for this is just plain wrong. As an accepted answer, maybe, but not as THE suggested/best translation. And while they're at it, if they accept "you all" then maybe they need to accept "youse" and "yiz."

English does not require 'all' for this to make sense Do you often go walking. Learn faster Duo
