Another Correct Solution

I've noticed the following accretion to the courses I'm concentrating on (Italian, German, Spanish, and French): When you solve an exercise, there will more often be an alternative translation at the bottom of the page with the "Another Correct Solution" moniker.

Sometimes this will indicate an acceptable gender variant, sometimes alternate vocabulary. Sometimes you are reminded of alternate verb interpretations ("I am eating" or "I eat" for example.)

At the risk of boring some of my old buddies here on the forum, I appreciate this as a valuable step forward.

Thank you, DL.

I agree, it's a useful improvement.
Just to mention one example, any sentence that contains "you" can refer to a singular 2nd person or a plural 2nd person, and allows at least two valid answers.

I think this happens to questions that are corrected, and I think they start off with only one solution.

For example, I posted another correct solution that wasn't accepted for a question, and I think it got reviewed and was accepted.

Yes, and in Spanish and other languages. A significant improvement.

Yes, I totally agree. It actually helps me understanding the meaning of words en grammar techniques I don't use often. Keep going DL staff!

I've been at this now for a little over a year, and I think DL is fantastic. It is obviously a work in progress, and will (one hopes) always be so as the lessons are improved and more features added.
