'Ik probeerde OM in het Nederlands te praten' isn't good?

Ja, OM is hier wel goed. Maar meestal zeggen we: We probeerden Nederlands te praten/spreken (dus zonder "in het"). Maar dat is afhankelijk vam de contekst.

Nothing, it sounds a bit more formal than praten, but it's fine.

It was in the multiple choice exercise, but it was marked wrong, I thought perhaps it might not work with "in het Nederlands" for some reason. Thanks, will check for it next time :)

The one marked wrong says 'hen' not 'het'... Almost got me too :)

Hi! How can I report a mistake? I'm writing exactly the same answer as Duo suggests and it says it's wrong. Thanks!

Hi Patricia, You know how after every sentence is checked you get a message saying whether your answer was correct or not?

Well, there are two little icons there, one that leads you here, and another one (a flag) that you can use to report mistakes.

Oh! I haven't noticed that icon, thanks a lot MentalPinball. In the end, I was having trouble with my internet connection, so the answer was perfectly correct.

You're welcome. Yeap, I've had that kind of issues myself, so I know how annoying it can be!

Why do I need to put 'het' in there? Does 'Nederlands te praten' not work without the article?
