Typing the answer as given is treated as wrong. There is no way to complete this lesson correctly.

This is what I typed (without the quotes), and it was marked as incorrect. "J'ai acheté un tube de dentrifice à la pharmacie ." I reported it as there are two sentences in this exercise for which Duo rejects the answer presented as the correct one.

Considering that several people and I have answered correctly, Duo should have corrected this a while ago. Disappointed ....

Are you sure you wrote "dentifrice" correctly? I have seen several reports with "dentrifice".

j'ai acheté un tube de dentifrice chez le pharmacien - marked wrong!!!


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

"Chez le pharmacien" is correct but Duolingo wants "à la pharmacie".

You can use "chez" with any professional's work place: chez le boucher, chez le médecin, chez Duolingo

Why is d'entifrice incorrect?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alexmiller1201

Because it should not have an apostrophe.
