In the southern part of the Netherlands we celebrate carnival

The translation is wrong right now; carnaval translates to carnival and not to carnaval

I think "in the south of the Netherlands" makes us much sense as "in the southern part..." but I messed up some other spelling so I can't really report it.

Ditto. Sometimes the correct translation of "carnaval" is "carnival," and sometimes it is "carnaval."

This is ridiculous.. this lesson is almost because of the unusual grammar on some of the sentences.
