Duolingo is very flawed

Duolingo is very flawed. "it doesn't" has been marked incorrect at times and at other times "it does not" has been marked incorrect? So many errors - since when does "movie" translate as "le cinema"... so frustrating...

Aren't we all flawed in one way or another?? :-)

If you give an answer that you find correct, but the system rejects, you can report the sentence as "My answer should be accepted" (or similar).

I've done that, and I've received emails saying "your sentence has been added" some time (weeks) later.

In this way, we can contribute to improvement instead of just complaining.

I didn't know that was possible. How do you do that?

If you give an incorrect answer, a red field will appear saying "Correct solution ...". In the lower left corner of that red field, there is a button "Report". And this "Report" includes the option "My answer should be accepted".

(Just tried it out in my Norwegian course ...)

Thanks for the answer! My screen was zoomed a little too much, so the "report button" was "outside".

«Going to the movies» does translate as «aller au cinéma» :) Have a frustration-free day! ^_^
