More English instruction from DL Russian?

Сейчас зима, хотя на улице тепло.

I translated as “It is winter now, although it is warm outside.”

Marked wrong for not saying “even though”. I fail to see how the two word version adds any meaning. Not worth marking wrong.

It probably just means that nobody has written that as a response and asked for it to be marked correct.

But meantime I’m losing points and sometimes get expelled when I make a mistake or two and so does DL.

Hi there Your translation of the Russian sentence was correct! The reason that Duo hasn't accepted it is simple:they do not have that version recorded as an option. This happens in all of my courses regularly You have to use Report button below and choose "my answer should have been accepted" Eventually they will add your response to the correct options.(yes they do that) I even got notifications from them when it happened.

Unfortunately there are mistakes in Russian-English course and nobody cares. That is why I wouldn't recommend it for initial learning Russian.
