Words in different languages do not match each other one-to-one. Either word can reasonably be translated as either "pretty" or "beautiful."

Thanks for your help. I know this and just left this message to Duo to help them fix the mistake of not accepting "bonita" as a correct answer. See heather304956's post below.

Leaving messages on the sentence forums is not likely to get the sentence changed. I recommend using the report button.

I did that, please see my first message, where I said "Reported".

To me, bella is much more grandiose than just bonita. On the order of gorgeous vs. pretty. Any thoughts?

Duo has switched between the two in other examples in the same exercise so without explanation surely both are acceptable?
