The little girl has a cookie and her brother does not. He is jealous.

What's wrong with the answer?

Please explain to me "n'en a pas".

The pronoun "en" stands for "de + something mentioned before".

In this case "en" stands for "de biscuit": la petite fille a un biscuit et son frère n'a pas de biscuit.

The girl had a BISCUIT, she did not have a COOKIE!!. I thought that Duo had sorted that out a long time ago. You only have COOKIES in America.

Not so. "Pilot biscuits" are commonplace, although they were more so when we ate less sugary food.

This is the longest listening activity I think I've ever seen on this site and possibly the only with a word bank.

It's not jealousy, it's envy. He wants what she has.

Whenever an exercise seems to have one or several tiles missing:

  1. zoom out your web browser to 67%
  2. then
    • IF the "missing" tiles appear below the other tiles, then you can do the exercise.
      After completing the exercise you can return to a zoom at 100% if you prefer; but you may need to zoom out again later.
    • IF the "missing" tiles don't appear despite the zoom to 67%, then

If the tile that is missing varies from one attempt to another, then it's very likely that the tile is actually here but hidden. Hence that the zoom-out workaround will work.

The zoom-out is not an optimal solution (yes, things should appear at 100% too), but it's at least a way to pass the exercise in the many cases where the tile is actually there but hidden at zoom=100%).

This is a developer option and may cause certain apps to display improperly if left on
On android, you can adjust DPI in developper options. Simply: turn it up > switch app to duolingo > solve > change DPI to default
