'2007' was rejected(!) Writing out a year in full, although perfectly correct, is not usual practice in English.
And yet the previous question rejected 'the twenty-fifth of December' and wanted 'December 25'; I wish there were more consistency in the answers of this course.

Keep reporting. The swahili tree is still young and not as popular as German or French, so it will take some time before those oversights are mended, but we can help by reporting :)

In English "calendar for the year" is far more commonly used than "calendar of the year"

There are so many ways to say this and it's egregious how narrow the range of accepted answers is.

"the calendar for 2007" not accepted. I saw this question and knew right away, there's no way to guess what the gnomes at Duolingo will accept. Other Duolingo courses are far better. Maybe we should just pay a few bucks to learn Swahili at Memrise or Babbel, and turn to the really excellent courses elsewhere on Duolingo..

Thanks for the tip about Memrise. It looks very promising. Is it free? https://www.memrise.com/courses/english/swahili/

It's true that Duolingo Swahili is way behind the other Duolingo courses. Duolingo German is great, but they must have massive resources in comparison - certainly masses of Beta testers before its release. See Vitoreiji's comment above and keep reporting, especially if you use the Android app and can specify exactly what the error is.

Memrise is free and it's great! It serves a bit of a different purpose from Duolingo - it is 100% vocab, so I am planning to learn the basics of Swahili here and then build more advanced vocab on Memrise

Babbel has no Swahili course.

Correct answers are rejected. Terrible!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matthias720438

2007 is not accepted. What a shame!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matthias720438

It is just a shame...
