OK... this is very confusing to me, and at a time that I seem to be mastering a few things. At first we were taught that habla means speaks now speaks is sometimes not acceptable. Now the same word means talks. In my limited way of thinking either word should be accepted, no? Gracias!
Right. There is a lot of new stuff, and all the possible correct answers may not have been included into the Duolingo darabase as yet. What we are, here, besides being students of the Spanksh language, is Beta Testers. So when we see something we are sure is an error, we need to report it. Talking about it here won't get it fixed.
