The female audio is bad for "vol" (says "volume"). Please disregard it. It cannot be fixed without replacing the entire audio package used throughout Duolingo French courses.
I said "the flight lasts FOR ten hours" and was marked wrong. But this is what we - well, I - would say in English?
I agree Isabellelz4
I would only say "the flight lasts ten hours" while I was on it. How would I translate "the flight takes ten hours (to get there)"?
Thinking in English, "the flight takes ten hours" is the same in French "le vol dure dix heures".
I put "The flight takes ten hours". I was marked wrong. It came up with "The flight lasts ten hours"!!
"Lasts" is a bit weird in this context. Would think "takes" makes more sense unless being on the flight is the preferred condition.
The droid says 'volume'!
the voice says vol
What is wrong with 'the flight is ten hours long'? This seems to me to be a perfectly valid translation, but is marked wrong.
