"Write 'the crepe' in French"

Okay, I'm not sure now which topic it goes under, so I'm cross-posting this.

Duolingo said "Write 'the crepe' in French".

I wrote "la crêpe".

Duolingo said it was wrong, that I should have written: "a crêpe"

Bwahaha, that's funny! It kept forcing me to redo that one until I dutifully wrote "a crêpe".

Sadly, the only reporting option was to report that the image (a crepe pan) did not match the words.

I did report it, but of course the image was fine. It was the "franglish" that was wrong. Mon dieu!

I run into this fairly often. I report the ones that I can, but some don't give you the option to give meaningful feedback. That's disappointing.

Right, if they would only add a check box that said "Something else is wrong" and a text box below to write what the problem is on each one.

You say "franglish", I say "franglais".
