Dear Duo, Hi Duolingo. I have a problem. Quite a lot of people have this problem. I am not trying to be a bad sport or so, but you need to add multiple answers. I've seen a lot of comments in the discussion saying "oh I say it ........" or "we don't say that in my country" and so on. So I'm gonna show you an example: 不客氣！再見！ . In Canada, we might say it as your welcome, goodbye. But in other countries, they might say it differently. So, I ask you Duo to please add multiple answers. If you do, thank you very much. From, Katherine
I see the problem,too.In Chinese,"冬天快到了。" and "快到冬天了。" almost have the same meaning,both can be translated to "Winter is coming.".However,in the test,the latter will be "wrong". As a "pure" Chinese person,I tried over and over again to pass the last checkpoint.Maybe it is because my English isn't good enough... I hope the course will be more humanized.It is hard since Chinese and English are quite different. At last,I'm delighted to see that more and more people are learning Chinese. Welcome to China!(This is only for those who are friendly and objective)
Ah, I see! Canadians no long speak English! Actually the your/you're confusion is not really a matter of apostrophes, but of the distinction between possessive 'your' and the contraction of 'you are'. I would be happy for English to rid itself of apostrophes, but then we would have to write all verb forms out in full (at least in formal contexts) or make a distinction between 'your' and 'youre'. Either way, 'your welcome' is substandard, except in "Your welcome was heartwarming".
Many things in the Chinese portion of Duolingo from what I see have been reported for three months back and nothing has been fixed. I hope that Duolingo isn't dropping Chinese support. I've even shown my wife(who is Chinese) my answers, which she also answered the same way that I did and Doulingo marks it wrong. Plus, when I get a correct answer wrong I'm charged in health, then I have to use my Lingots to replenish my health which I purchased for something that isn't wrong... .
