It's a lot harder, but not impossible. Some people have real learning disabilities, and they are courageous, they try their best. But some people are just too lazy to try to learn correct spellings.
The user doesn't mention learning disabilities, but young people. Spanish is already one of the easier language to spell...
What do you want more? A specific version of Spanish invented specially for kids, like a new conlang?
True, but unfortunately it just makes it harder, and something to either work around or adjust to.
Spellcheck is a thing.
I have dyscalculia, I can't be angry math isn't easier for me because of that... just means I have to work that much harder than someone else, but I still need to have learned what I learned...
You have masculine/feminine endings for nouns and adjectives but not for verbs like necesitar. A verb changes its ending depending on who does something (I, you, another person,...). In this case it would be:
necesito - I need; necesitas - you need; necesita - he/she needs; necesitamos - we need; necesitais - you need; necesitan - they need
"[tú] necesitas" is singular "you need" and "[vosotros] necesitáis" is plural "you guys need". both forms are informal. keep in mind "[vosotros] ...-áis" form is usually only used in Spain. and since Duolingo is teaching Latin-American Spanish, you'll be seeing the formal "ustedes necesitan" instead.
I put "Yo necesito un über." It was marked correct haha ;)
People are complaining about it being too harsh on spelling, meanwhile I think it's too generous about accent marks.
An accent makes the difference between 'you' and 'your'. An accent also makes a difference between 'year' and 'anus'. It's important to learn the difference.
DuoLingo graded me incorrect on this audio, type the Spanish you hear, sentence, but it sounded to me like the Spanish word en, not in. I don't hear well, and I do slow the sentence down sometimes to catch the words. This is the first time that I've had a problem with this particular word not sounding right. I probably should use headphones but I use the app mostly when I am lying in bed.
