- To me, Tamir is my Syrian friend; and I think your spelling is as identically arbitrary as mine. Even when I was six, I had the confidence to argue with my teachers, and I have become "only more so"; actually, I can change my opinion, and do; but you have no argument, and I am not doing this to please you, but to please me.
- Nevertheless, I really like Duo and notice how you re-enforce my learning when I made a mistake; however, I am surprised that I remember so much; at my age, my memory is very unreliable.
Hello, i had same problem. Maybe you can find out where it is/how to ... for you on the wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_keyboard where some keyboards are pictured. I found how to write the specific "double letter"-thingie on my keyboard (using same arabic(101) by trying out all possible key-combinations. For example key "a" you can make a - A ..(using azerty) - and that same key gives me in arabic(101) ض َ so the "dad" and "a-vowal sign". On my keyboard the top row keys are the "F"-keys, 2d row the numbers... and on this row all to the left is a key with little ² or/and ³ -- using the "shift"+key gives me the ّ -desired double letter sign. To get the little sign exact above the right letter you first type the letter and then hit the "shift+key" to put the sign above it. Hope this helps a bit. +-
Neighbour is English and is spelled like that in most of the English speaking world. The United States of America, led by Noah Webster (Webster's Dictionary) took it upon himself to "fix" the English language and removed all linguistic history from words.

Unfortunately, Duo Lingo is American and forces us to use spelling that will fail us in a school spelling test. I'm Canadian and an educator. I spend a lot of time re-training students to use proper spelling.
