  5. Chinese pronunciation does no…


Chinese pronunciation does not match the pinyin given.

There are many pronunciations that are not matching the pinyin given by Duo. For example: Duo pronounces 跑 as páo for another Chinese character 刨 but pinyin given is pǎo which is the right pronunciation for the character. I did not write down all of them I found before. But I will post them if I find them again one by one. Chinese is my native language. Hope they know this issue and correct them.

I just started Chinese Duolingo about a month ago and have not got the top level yet.


Not matching: Duo pronounces 扫 with sào but the pinyin is given as sǎo. When it is in the word 扫把, it is pronounced as sào but when it is in the word 扫地, it is pronounced as sǎo.
