The English translation is a bit verbose, in my opinion. Especially considering that in English, we don't normally go all the way to specify the gender of the persons who are being referred to..
In short, one should be able to type, the teacher has students and have it accepted as a correct answer answer.
Is there supposed to be a lesson or something about declensions that I am to have seen? I just keep getting run over by all these declensions oh, and I had to look up separate material just to find out that's what they're called. I'm still having a lot of trouble getting the right one, because I don't understand the situations in which which one applies. I'm slowly figuring it out, primarily by looking up information in other sources. Is that the way this is supposed to work?
Thank you. I've seen some of their videos, and liked them.
I figured out the problem I was having, and I feel I should discuss it, at least for the benefit of other posters I've seen with the same issue -- I've been using Duolingo entirely on mobile, and this meant I had no access to the "Tips" section, wherein declensions are discussed. Before anyone suggests it, I seriously don't think I could have been overlooking it -- I searched all over that app for some clue as to what the hell was going on. I had to realize for myself that the app was incomplete, at least for this course, without access to an internet-enabled computer, from which I'm now posting. The fact that I ran into this issue and had no clue really bothers me -- I very nearly stopped using it entirely. I do want to say, however, that everything else about the app made me quite pleased. However they did it, they got me learning Latin.
