Utilised vs Utilized
Just a note to the developers, there is a test that only accepts the US English spelling "Utilized", and not "Utilised".
You can just say "used", fyi. (How often do you say the word "utilis(z)ed" anyway?) :)
I think you can report it and they will add the uk version, I have noticed they accept trousers instead of pants and other English words
Wait you guys actually say trousers? It's not just a funny thing you do whenever there are Americans around?
Yea we say lots of things to sound funny to Americans that is why we say them, that is very important to us.
Not half as funny as it sounds to a Brit when Americans say 'pants'. Which mean underpants to us, which can have unintentionally hilarious results.
Hahaha perhaps I'll just start going around saying trousers. I can't quite do it with a standard American accent though, I'd have to switch the words around it to something silly sounding: "Put on ya' trousas."
I have just finished the spanish skills tree , how do I go on? it seems to stop right there!
Me too. I think the thing is to keep practicing to keep vocabulary fresh, and to start translating passages to build vocabulary further. I started doing Duolingo to refresh my grammar skills - I find that I don't use some of the more complex tenses in ordinary conversation and I wanted to challenge myself to refresh my skills. I'll keep practicing on Duolingo to make some of these more sophisticated usages come more naturally to me.
DonTeorino, I think users who complete the tree should get a logo of some type attached to their screen name. I am one lesson away now after starting this 11 months ago.
