Its a one word answer and the word bank on the app only jas one of the word choices starting with a capitol letter. ??

Yeah, they really should do away with capitalization in that mode. They don't include end punctuation anyway, so why bother with the sentence-initial cap?

The translation was a different phrase

Eh, I personally like the capitalization. Besides, shouldn't we all capitalize the first letter of a word in a sentence?

Where does the 'a ti' come from? That hasn't come up before this 'practice' session!

Maybe from translation of "you", because "thank" is "gracias". "You" in Spanish must be "to you", so "a ti".

Gracias a ti is thanks to you

How is the pronunciation? Here it is gra-cias but some places its gra-thias!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nicolescbr

Only in Spain sounds "gra-thias", in Latin America sounds "gra-cias"

    Since when is the "a ti" required? Never heard any spanish speaker add that to "gracias" when thanking me or anyone else...
