Single-sentence horror story.

The placement of the word to be entered in the arabic sentence is not clear. Seems to be a problem of Duo not correctly switching between RTL and LTR.

It shows correctly for me. Might be your device not rendering and showing it properly?

Not on my android mobile

Appears so in google chrome as well as in firefox (on windows 10 resp. windows 8.1)

I have the same problem and I use PC Firefox. It must be a common problem; I am using Mondly also for Arabic on Android and it has the same problem. So hopefully when one language program gets it working it might spread to others. I was like, but other language programs can do this. I haven't tried others, but apparently not. And my PC keyboard doesn't like to switch between Arabic and English in the same sentence in Firefox. So on both Android and Firefox I've seen the issue. It's only a matter of time before a fix is found and it spreads across programs.

Looks like it's been fixed now (as of 3rd August 2019) :-)

Yeah it appears incorrectly for me as well. Here's another example of it appearing wrong. I recommend sending a bug report to Duolingo so they can fix it: https://imgur.com/user/CcfUk2019/posts

It seems to only occur on the web app

The placement of the blank is wrong

Full stop appears to be in the wrong place for me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fehrerdef

Yes. This is also based on faulty switching between RTL and LTR.

Does it have to be 'the neighbor is a hungry neihgbor' or could it be 'a neighbor is a hungry neighbor' ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fehrerdef

It is clearly "the neighbor". There is a definite article in front of the word.

Formatting of blank space is off

Audio with question would help

Blank space should show on the right.
