I've been speaking to some Indonesians and they said there's no such thing as 'semiliar', they said it should be 'satu miliar.'

Yeah, thanks to you, I asked my idn friend and she said that she never heard "semiliar". :( why duo?

I don't want a billion OF letters ! why it is incorrect??

You don't put "of" after a numeral like this. You could have "billions of letters", but that's something different.

why is 'I don't want 1000000000 letters' wrong? I thought 1000000000 = a billion

Why are you the lazy egg? Isn't type the word easier than the number though? Language is about words. So don't be lazy to learn the spelling.

i was just asking why 'I don't want 1000000000 letters' wasn't accepted for the english version, as 1000000000 is equal to one billion. i know how to spell 'billion' in english, i was just asking that because in many other courses, the number is accepted for the english version (i am an english speaker learning indo).
