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.

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

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?

2 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/TheArtOfFHP

Yes, unfortunately, your thumbs will have made a difference in this instance! ;) It's the verb tenses: studied = past tense and studies = present tense.

They still want you to learn how to spell the words correctly so you don't spell it like that when there's no auto correct.
