English/French for Chinese

Hey, my name is Chris, I'm an English and French speaker (English 1st language, French 2nd) and I'm interested in learning simplified Chinese. Would anyone want to become a language buddy :)

Abwings, I have a question I hope you might answer, though it is unrelated to Chris' post. I am doing both the English/Chinese course and the Chinese/English course. In the latter, under Common Phrases, I was unable to complete a lesson because I couldn't find a key. The lesson asks to translate "June" into Chinese. I keyed in "六月“,which was marked wrong. Apparently the answer is supposed to be ”二0一五六月". I was unable to enter the zero - neither the number nor the letter O worked. Would you have any idea how to access that zero? (My Chinese is too limited to ask it in Chinese.)

Unfortunately Duolingo doesn't look to be able to support the '0' Chinese character. Just use a 0 in its place.

I recommend you report the question which Duolingo says its answer is 二0一五六月 because that means 2015 June literally. The answer 六月 should be correct.

I've discovered that on my Chinese keyboard, if I key in "ling", which means zero, the appropriate "0" pops up as one of the characters.
