Although you are right, it doesn't sound right to me. My instinctive reaction to "da" is "there". To me it is the most frequent meaning. I know that in certain situations "da" is more like "here" because it is not far away, but that could still be considered "there" - not as far away but as a pointer to a specific spot. As Krueksauer wrote for "here" there is a perfect translation "hier". In short: "da" is pointing at something near or farther away, "hier" is pointing at something close, "dort" is pointing at something farther away.
Yes, I should have told you. Sorry I'm not able to do a screen shot. 1. You do a sentence. 2. Check to see if it is correct or not. 3. Now you'll see on the bottom left a space that says: Report a problem. 4. click that and you'll get a few choices (the audio was bad, etc) if you want there is a space at the end to write your problem. 5. Then press "Submit".
Then the staff read all the problem and make changes if they think it's necessary. You don't get a reply, only next time you see that "mistake" it might be corrected, then you know you helped. If you need help let me know. Good luck, good learning.
