Feedback on translation (lessons)

Many times I feel like I may not giving exactly correct answers to the quiz questions, but my answer is accepted nevertheless because it is technically correct. For example, I always thought the Spanish word "el diario" just meant "diary" (just because of the way it sounds), and it took me a long time to realize a better translation of el diario would be newspaper.

I think it would be really awesome if the system gave feedback such as "your answer is accepted, but in this context the most appropriate translation would be such and such"

Sometimes it does. The system gives you another translation, which is the one DL considers the best translation. Well, in Spanish it does.
