Its not the point that it can be both tenses. Even those with knowlege of past tense would naturally assume present tense in this category and will make the mistake first time on this sentence, indeed more likely than a beginner as beginners may well use the drop down hints more regularly, whereas those with more experience would not use them.
The subject heading is 'present' not 'past', so why is "do not" marked as incorrect whilst "did not" is marked as correct...?
If the lesson is about the present tense, asking for a translation in the past is out of place here. I understand that the spelling is identical in this instance for the past, but the subject has not been introduced yet so the preferred translation should be corrected to the present tense. Thanks!
This is a mistake to make it so no one would know this is meant to be past tense because obviously the objective is to avoid use of the drop down hints in order to learn. I.e. this means just about everyone will initially go wrong. Even those who have knowledge of past tense because they too would not assume the past tense in this category.
I appreciate being given little curve balls like this (a past-tense example in a present-tense execise) in the lessons. I also dont mind getting an answer wrong the first time for whatever reason. This app is free and it is a fantastic resource! I also love the useful comments☺️
