Why not "Ego puer sum."?

It's been added,but unfortunately it takes some time for our changes to go live for users, sometimes two weeks or even longer.

To add on this, why not just "Puer sum".

For some reason the lessons here accept only a certain order, despite Latin allowing to freely arrange sentences.

The different word orders have to been added individually so it takes time for all iterations to be added.

It is not puér, but púer. The pronunciation is not good at all.

Ego é "eu" Ego is "I"

Why not "Ego puer sum" or else

On this I accidentally put Puer instead of puer and It marked me wrong

Is "ego sum _" and " sum" the equivalent of how you can use both "Yo soy _" and "Soy _" in spanish?
