This lady is a bot. The good part is that if you train a lot (everyday) here, and become able to understand her, you are likely to understand real Spaniards speaking fast. People won't articulate for you in movies or real conversations. They will speak fast, and naturally.
That did not sound like Yo vivo the vivo if said was so connected with aqui as to make it viva!
Something is up with this section, or the record keeping. I have finished lesson five of level four of families, twice, and after Duo tells me Yay! You finished it!!! It brings me back to the lesson selection page, and it hasn't recorded the completion. It is probably the record keeping, as this has happened multiple times to me in the French course, also. Just letting you know. There is no other way to let Duo know. Thank you for your understanding. Happy learning!
It's bad grammar to say Yo Vivo or yo tengo etc. It should only be used for emphasis. I have been corrected many times by my Spanish teacher and this is the one thing she dislikes about duolingo. This is because the verb Vivir means to live and it is congugated to Vivo meaning i live, saying yo vivo is like saying i i live, it's emphasis and should not be used all yhe time, duolingo accepts the answers without the yo on the front but does not teach you that it is unnecessary. Learning congugation is important in Spanish x
