No way to enter Zero in a Chinese year date
The Duolingo iPad ap appears to have no way to enter zero in a Chinese date like 2015. The 0 number from the iPad keyboard is marked as wrong. The Chinese character ling,零, is marked as wrong. Has anyone figured out how to enter it in a way that will be marked as right?
Maybe just using the Arabic numerals (0, 1, 2, 3, etc) for writing dates is the way Duolingo accepts it.
Duolingo won't accept that. It wants the Chinese equivalents and it doesn't accept the Chinese equivalent of the Arabic zero (0).
Doesn't work! There's no way to copy. When you press on the 0, you get a mouse-over-type definition.
I'm not sure how you did that. Since the beginning of this week, I no longer get questions that call for keyboard input. Now all of the questions call for selecting character tiles. Very strange!
Can you configure Duolingo to allow keypad input of Chinese characters on the iPad? My Duolingo lessons were allowing that and suddenly, they no longer are. Now questions call for selecting from character tiles.
Do you have Chinese (Pinyin) Keyboard set up for iOS?
(Settings -> General -> Keyboards)
You can switch to the Pinyin keyboard and type "ling". You then get a menu of choices, including both 〇 and 零.
I suspect that the more complex version of zero is such a nuisance to write out, that they adapted the circle to be similar to the Arabic zero.
