There needs to be consistency of approach. Why can you not also say they will not learn english?

If i were to say hawatajifunza kiswahilli as in previous exercises this has not translated to 'they will not learn the swahilli language' as expected but has instead been marked only correct for 'they will not learn swahilli'

Why is the translation "they will not learn English" incorrect?

    When is it kingereza and when is it Kiingereza? Seems duo uses inconsistent spelling and capitalization. Is one more correct than the other?

    it's most often Kiingereza but sometimes Kingereza, i heard it's a longstanding technical error that needs to be fixed in duo's backend. it's most often capitalized.

    Agreed, this inconsistency causes a lot of frustration in completing exercises

    I have always said, and my dictionaries agree with, kiingereza
