What has happened to DL's Vietnamese course just today?

It's now marking perfectly correct Vietnamese sentences, written correctly word for word, diacritics and all, as typos. English sentences are unaffected.

I am thinking now that it no longer recognizes my keyboard mapping to Vietnamese is the only answer. In particular, when I have to use two non-English characters at the same time:

thấy (the ấ)

tiệm bánh (the ệ)

cộng ty (the ộ)

Also, the 'report' button is crippled, there is no longer the option to put in "My answer should be accepted".

Hi StewartMM, That sounds like a bug! You can report bugs here. Ty!

I've noticed it marking diacritics wrong on my PC, but don't have the same problem on Android. I also suspect keyboard mapping issues. (I'm on Ubuntu

It only gives a warning about the "incorrect" diacritics, doesn't affect tallied results, so I ignore it now, other than double checking I haven't swapped an ă for an â or something.

I am using Kubuntu Linux, so I think we share the same problem. I am reporting it.

As you can see, they're all word-for-word correct, but I get marked wrong.
