It seems to me that "My mother is a bird specialist". should be correct.
I just typed that and it was marked correct so maybe they've updated it.
That's what I put & DUO said No
Thanks but i was using the microphone and it.put new befor birds my fault should have looked first
I said 'My mother is a specialist on birds'. I think that this should be correct.
No one says "specialist on birds" although en does mean both 'on' and 'in'
Actually, a lot of people do say that.
I don't think that is proper English though.
In South West England we say 'on'. Not saying it is grammatically correct, just saying!
Or "my mother is a specialist with birds" , i agree that this one sounds wrong
Yep, I came to type the same thing. "My mother is a bird specialist" is more natural than a "specialist in birds".
It was for me
It was an auditory typo
Agree. Is is very annoying that sometimes it accepts English, as we put and others you have to translate literally. "Specialist in birds"
I think so but DUO does not. DUO is very stiff-necked
Why not write es una especialista
I also believe that, "My mother is a bird specialist." Should be accepted as correct.
Mi madre es ornitóloga.
Please add 'My uncle is an expert in bird law'
I said "My mother is a specialist on birds" but said "On" was wrong when it even gave a translation of for it under "en". Is there a way to know which one to use?
That's exactly what I did. I think that 'on' should be correct under these circumstances.
Does anyone know any "abogados de pájaros"?
My mother is a bird expert ? !
"My mother is a bird specialist" was marked wrong, I couldn't report it as I was on a timed practice but think it should be right.
I gave the same answer and agree that it is correct
Just got this again and it is still being marked wrong so this time I put in a report.
Sort of my answer. I put "my mother is an expert on birds." Accepted.
I typed bird spealist and got it wrong
Probably because you misspelled specialist.
Is it corret "My mother is expert in birds"?
Duo would probably want experto/a for expert
Now I know the indefinite article in front of especialista isn't needed in Spanish but I thought you could leave it in and still be accepted?
So when there is no article in front of a word, it defaults to a/an and not "the"?
Why was I wrong answering "My mom is an expert on birds"?
I wrote "My mother is specialist in birds", instead of "a specialist". It was marked wrong. Someone, please, can tell me Why? Thanks in advance.
Hi Wilson, it doesn't sound right without the "a" to me (I am English) but whether it is grammatically correct without it I don't know, hopefully someone else will answer.
Why i must use 'a'
"My mother is specialised in birds" Is there a reason why DL considers this wrong?
Maybe Duo is looking for a noun instead of an adjective?
I was wrong with "My mum is an expert with birds"??
I wrote: My mother is a birds specialist. But it marked birds wrong saying that it is supposed to be bird. Could it also be birds?
WHY is Mi madre es una especialista en pajaros . wrong?
<I must type in spanish.>
Would it have allowed "Ornithologist?"
Does especialiata change to especialisto for masculine?
I specialize in bird law
Kelly and Associates
A lot of glitches on this one, would not accept the correct answer, even its own correct answer
"I put my mother is a bird expert" and it was accepted
Isn't it "a birds' specialist" the right answer?!
Birds, meaning different species or groups of birds, is technically correct, but it would be rarecto say that.
It says "Type what you hear" so I enter it correctly and it says it's wrong. I'm stuck in the twilight zone!
DUO didn't like 'My mom's an ornithologist'
I put 'My mom's a specialist in birds'
I got Zapped
My mother is an avian specialist. Is not wrong tho it's marked that way.
Why can't it be "my mother is specialised in birds?"
It didn't accept the English phrase "My mother is a birds specialist."
My mother is a bird specialist has been taken before. Why the change? Bird specialist sounds better then specialist in birds
Duo isn't listening The answer they give is very clumsy English in U K
My Mother 's a bird specialist. No need for the IN at all!!!
I think I would sometimes say specialist 'of' birds
Yo mama likes cocks
When you know the slang meaning...
I put mother and it should be correct
