Accents on Spanish lessons?
I’m a longtime Duolingo user looking to incorporate Duolingo in some Spanish classes. Is there a way to require students to type accents?
Or at the very least is there some implement of accountability where I can check on their regularly practicing proper usage of punctuation?
In a language like Spanish proper use of accents is as essential as spelling. I would even say it IS a part of spelling as the meaning of a word changes completely depending on whether an accent is present or not. Famous example: “por qué” and “por que” are two completely different words (why and because).
I know that Duolingo for the rest of us has always let us slide when it comes to punctuation, and I don’t think that will change any time soon. But it’s even more crucial in a proper classroom setting. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance!
