Swedish ending typos

I don't know if I should be worrying about this but the Swedish course seems to be very lenient with regards to typos - especially the endings of words.

So far, I've been marked correct (just with a typo flag) for using -en endings for ett words and using the wrong plural e.g. -ar instead of -or.

I can see myself becoming very complacent and not worrying about how important these endings are if I'm not going to be penalized for them and hence not learning the language correctly.

Other than that, I'm loving the Swedish course so far - especially the inclusion of moose and reindeer.

This is not supposed to happen. We are having several issues with the course right now which are not related to our work in the incubator. We think there may have been a bug or problem when the course was compiled and we are working on solving these issues.

Thank you for reporting this issue.

Would you like us to report it when Duolingo lets us pass with the wrong gender (-en vs. -et) etc?

No, we are aware of the problem and we are trying to fix it. The problem is that previous courses don't have this problem since articles are separate words, but writing "pojket" is a huge mistake!
