"El búho escribió mucho en español."
Translation:The owl wrote a lot in Spanish.
I'm working on my "new" Spanish section. Quite a few similar sentences insisted on "lots" as the correct answer when I wrote "much." I wrote that, and Duo marked it as wrong and wanted "loads" instead! Please!!!
Thank you, SnarlsBarky. In addition to that, if you don't feel like laughing, at least realize that this could be personification, which a literary tool that is quite common and powerful in literature the world over. No one thinks The Lion King or The Chronicles of Narnia are stupid, yet both are full of talking animals.
I beg to differ. I find this series of Animals Behaving Out of Character so immensely entertaining that I am making far fewer translation errors.
In conclusion, I would suggest that you test the batteries on your humor-o-meter. (Just sayin')
