This got stuck on "you typed in English, not Gaelic" for minor errors (in the Gaelic), and refused to move on to the next question unless I typed random letters

I had the same problem. My only escape route was to select 'can't listen right now'. I think Duolingo needs to provide a 'skip' option or 'I give up' or 'reveal' the correct answer

Thats a great idea John574319 I had heard leabhar before but I was hearing the first letter as 'd' and got stuck I tried leaving the word out and then putting in another gaelic word but neither worked and was repeatedly told as averyone else had that I was writing in English. I didn't want to go down the 'can't listen' route so I just wrote any gaelic word on its own and I got onto the answer page thank goodness. I think any of the ideas suggested by John574319 would be helpful.

I had the same problem. I'd not heard leabhar pronounced that way and had to go back to my notes and try everything that could possibly be what I heard as yar. I had to quit the lesson and came back to it tonight and it still took many tries. What I put in was never English.

It sounded like yar to me as well. Is this one of those words with a regional variance, like sibh?
