    Why doesnt "at the south pole there are no polar bears" work? Its the exact same thing, just in different order.

      That's currently listed as a correct translation. Do you have a screenshot of it being rejected?

      I also have the same problem

      What about Herbert P. Bear?

      Shouldn't South Pole be capitalized?

        Isnt ice bear proper English as well?

        I have never heard a polar bear called an ice bear, at least in the United States.

        Not in British English either, I'm afraid. I like it as a phrase though; let's hope it catches on!

        Und am Nordpol gibt es keine Pinguine

        I played it through several times and the female voice does sound like Am Südpol LIEBT es keine Eisbären . Its gibt es on the slow version .

        Supposedly accepted but rejected again the following day or so.

          I understand it's frustrating when you encounter problems with the course, but at level 25 surely you know you've got to give details in your comment if you want anything to be done about it!

          For what it's worth, I had a look at the problem reports and improved the consistency of accepted translations somewhat. I still prefer Duo's suggestion, though :)
