I don't know whether this has been suggested before, but I would really like to see this happen, if at all possible: I've noticed that when we get a "write what you hear" type question, and translate it instead, we get another chance without losing hearts, which is a good thing. However, when we get a "translate" type question, but instead write what we hear, (which happens to me a LOT, because it sounds the same and I don't always look at the screen) we're immediately marked down on that question. So, if at all possible, I'd like Duolingo to give us another chance whenever we write the sentence in the wrong language. Does anybody agree? Disagree (why)?

Also, I'd like to be able to press enter to start a new paragraph in discussions, rather than make walls of text.

EDIT: Oh, never mind about that. When I wrote this topic, and this first reply the enter key just didn't work at all for some reason, but it seems to work for me now.

Press enter twice to get a blank line, like so.

And at the end of a sentence make four spaces before hitting return
to get a line break without the blank line.

I guess something was just wrong with my keyboard at the time.
Thanks anyway.

Mine does that once in a blue moon. Odd.
