They must have fixed it. "Sin" was the one highlighted for me and not "por favor".
How common is it to use "sin" rather than "no" when ordering something in normal, common Spanish conversation?
What exactly do you mean? No native speaker would actually say "no leche" instead of "sin leche" if that is what you're asking.
I guess they were thinking because in English it'd be more common to say "no milk, please" instead of "without milk, please" in casual conversation.
I usually drink my coffee without milk, so definitely a useful phrase, which I could use, when I'll be buying coffee, when I will visit Spain, hopefully in the near future :)
I know the word "sin" from the song El Perdón, by Enrique Iglesias and Nicky Jam (Es que yo sin ti Y tú sin mi ...)!
Why's everyone saying that the por favor was highlighted? Sin was highlighted for me :')
“Sin leche, por favor” is “Without milk, please” so I can see why “Yes” would be highlighted.
For me also, but it can depend on the exercise or the app version or even which app.
Umm,think they are missing the point of highlighting the words,I know what por favor means.
They highlight new words and they also highlight errors. Though for errors, they sometimes highlight the wrong word, often later than the error.
When i got this it used a new feature where you have to type what you hear
This feature existed, but it was random before and now you start with easy features and later get more difficult features.
i got that right, but i said pls instead of please, but dont that still count?
Sorry, Duolingo does not accept texting shortcuts.
How is Sin pronounced? It sounds like its missing the N. So it sounds like Si
I clearly hear the woman say the ‘n’ in “sin”, but when people talk quickly the following “l” in “leche” may have the stronger sound. Here you can listen to native speakers: https://forvo.com/word/sin/ Scroll down to the section for pronunciation in Spanish. Actually listening to the English section first does make you notice that we put more emphasis on the ‘n’ then they do in Spanish.
The e at the end of please was not typed as I thought so it came up wrong not as a typo
