Why isn't the translation "The weather is nicer in..."? (that's what is referred to in these instances with 'il fait beau')

"The weather is better in May than in February" was just accepted for me. 12 June 2018

Oh how I despise the word "nicer"... it's on par with "gooder" (which isn't a word ;-). I'm thrilled duo accepts "the weather is better", but they really should go a step futher and use "better" in the official translation...

Having been prompted to say it's nice "out" in another exercise, I find it pretty annoying that this response was marked wrong. Did this all need more review before the new version of Duo went out?

The weather is nicer in May than in February. This means the same thing, it's talking about the weather. This should be accepted.

It is clearly refering to the weather so it shouldn't mark wrong 'better weather'

Why not accept 'It is finer in ...'?

I put "finer" and it was marked wrong!

The weather is better/ finer/ ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE APPALLING "NICE" - and, what's more they're CORRECT! I get tired of saying it but it's this sort of thing that frustrates learners and doubtless loses students from Duo!
