Actually, I don't remember making any speech in my whole life!
Okay, you just taught me that the word for "discourse" was "discurso" and when I used it as such, I got it wrong. You should change the picture-concept slide to "speech", not "discourse."
With Duolingo's panoptic visión of teaching all languages to all people, they don't bother with such minor details. I wager not even 1% of the suggested updates are tended to.
I think maybe there is a threshold for the number of times a problem has to be reported before it will be fixed. Obviously, if just one person says "my answer should be correct" that's not enough to go off of. But when multiple people start to report the mistakes, Duo DOES update its database!!
If its wrong you shouldnt just accept it, the 'complaint' system is actually error reporting put in by duo as they know they make plenty of mistakes in this software but they want us to work them out rather than do the work themselves.
Actually, this sentence is not wrong. 'Speech' is the best translation for 'discurso' in this sentence. So my suggestion was to accept that 'speech' is indeed correct and to not nitpick over other infinite possibilities. I agree that it is good to report mistakes, but I do not agree that this sentence contains an error.
The Spanish course has approximately 400 lessons, with 15-20 sentences per lesson, for a total of 6000-8000 sentences. If a person gets caught up in minor details picking apart each sentence, they'll never complete the course. That's my take on it. But hey, to each his own. Cada loco con su tema. ;-)
Because 'complainng', (or at least reporting stuff), is how Duolingo improves its service to other learners, so it's how you contribute to the community. Posting here also helps people not learn something incorrect.
'your speech was fine' was not accepted although fine is given as an alternative hovering the word 'excelente'
