I was dinged for misspelling Portuguese in English. I left out the "u". What does a misspelling in English have to do with learning Spanish?
I did too. The system needs to be refined generally to distinguish spelling errors from incorrect words.
Same here. I'm embarrassed that I spelled Portuguese wrong in English. But I'm surprised that I was marked incorrect for that.
Right here with all of you. I accidentially did it twice because I thought I had to capitalize Portuguese. But when I found out it was a spelling error, I was confused and partly annoyed.
Me too & I agree with you. I reported it. Sometimes Duo accepts misspellings, so why not this time?
There are also people from the English tree (English for Spanish speakers) who come here to do the reverse tree. Duolingo would want to make sure they learn too.

SAME HERE I LEFT OUT THE U SPELLING PORTUGESE LIKE THIS AND I LOST ONE OF MY HEARTS BECAUSE I AM TESTING OUT OF THE SUBJECT... I know it was wrong but the fact was that we knew what it was saying and the purpose was to translate the sentence not relearn our grammar
Same! Like, NO duolingo, I used the right word, I just spelled it wrong because I literally never have had to spell it before.
Misspelled Portuguese and got it wrong. I'm trying to learn Spanish not English
Misspelled Portuguese and got it wrong I'm trying to learn Spanish not English
I think that we should be able to spell correctly in our language, I welcome the correction.
I got wrong because my big thumbs hit the D instead of the S in studies. Is there a difference between studied and studies in Spanish?
I misspelled it and it didn't understand at all... it just marked me wrong completely I spelled it like portiguess on accident and it was completely wrong
Seriously! "Ella estudia portugeuse" marked wrong because I have a "ue" reversed.
Perhaps the Portuguese are very proud people and have required Duo to make certain their Nationality is NOT misspelled.
I always have problems with "learning" and "studying". Which is the diference? Thank you
