Oh, I keep doing that! - despite knowing perfectly well that "brot" is soup, and making Scotch BROTH fairly regularly, the number of times I have clicked on "bread" for this ... But then Brot = bread in German. Duh!!.... Note to self - pay attention!!

Happens to the best of us, I promise!

I speak German too, so I regularly make the same mistake as you!

And now this one sounds ambiguous... but maybe a bit more like "agad".

Hi, just had a listen and it is a fairly distinct nn sound. The only thing I can think of is if the file was clipped when it played.

The sound file linked from this page here sounds good and clear. I can't seem to get back to the example that sounded off to me.

"broth" was accepted last time


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

It is accepted here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eilidh19845

I had it accepted one time, then not...


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

Not sure what the cause of that could be.

Just a glitch, I assume. Na gabh dragh!
