Duolingo presented "The teacher reads Latin literature" and gave me three options, one of which was "Magister litteras Latinas legit." That's the correct answer and it is the one I chose. But Duolingo marked it incorrect and said "Ubi litteras latinis legitis" (Where do you read Latin literature?) was the right answer. It isn't.

Well, it now accepts the correct answer in a typing exercise, but the word select option still uses words for "Ubi litteras latinis legitis."

Just had a similar issue in the placement test. My answer was wrong, but Duo gave "Ubi litteras Latinas legitis?" as the supposedly correct answer.

The translation above ("Magister litteras Latinas legit") is correct but was not included among the multiple choice options. Instead, "Ubi litteras Latinas legitis?" ("Where do you read Latin literature?") was incorrectly given as the answer.

I just had 3 examples that had nothing to do with the sample sentence.

Don't worry, Latin is still in beta! Users get to test the course out to make the experience better once it graduates from beta.

I thought it was fully finalized, my bad! I still find it so awesome that we can learn this language as it was meant to be: as an actual language. And not following the Prussian system which is so tedious and doesn't actually teach you it properly, which I've been studying with for over four years :D

It tells me "Ubi litteras Latinas legitis?" is another answer. This would be "where do you all read latin literature?"

There was no correct option. Magistra or magister were not options

Ubi means "where". This question has no right answer
