'zij heeft de hele tijd gesproken' is marked wrong because it's not simple past? or is there a grammatical error that slipped me or is it because talked isn't 'gesproken'
I'm Dutch myself and I think it's wrong because duolingo wants you to use the verb 'praten', instead of 'spreken', so it should be 'Zij heeft de hele tijd gepraat'
The former I think :-)
"Sprak" should also be acceptible instead of "praatte"

Since "zij" (she) and "zij" (they) both conjugate with "praten" as "praatte", how do we tell if this Dutch sentence refers to "she" or "they"? Thanks.
Plurals are conjugated 'praatten', with an n
Oh, my mistake, thanks!
'ze praatte' and 'ze praten' - how can we tell these apart well when they're spoken and not written?
