"I USED TO READ twenty pages every evening" was accepted which is a good sign in view of some other issues with this tense on many other exercises. Apologies if this looks like clutter - am just trying to bring to DL's attention - have reported several other cases.
Agree, but I'm pretty sure there remain instances on DL where "used to" would make perfect sense in the context given by DL (let's face it, the phrases are usually very short so there is hardly any context anyway) but they still don't allow it.
True but, unfortunately, Duo does not give the alternatives in their confirmations when there are two possible translations.
Twenty pages a night was not accepted as the same as twenty pages each night which was acceptable. Oh la
'ogni sera' means 'every evening', right? Why did DL mark it wrong and corrected to 'each evening' ??? Help me to understand, pls....
'I did read twenty pages every evening' was corrected into 'I'd read twenty pages every evening'. Am I missing something?
"I had read twenty pages every evening" was not accepted! The "correct" answer DL gave was "I'd read twenty pages every evening". What is "I'd" a contraction of then?
