A small suggestion.

EDIT: FOR SOME REASON, THE TEXT IS ALL YELLOW. I don't know if it's just me, but i have no idea how to fix it : http://i.imgur.com/AYAEiEw.png

I have a suggestion which would help when making small typos that mark the sentence as invalid .

<pre> Let's say, you are given a sentence and you make a small mistake, something like typing " a " instead of " an ", because you didn't pay enough attention . This usually invalidates the whole sentence, and the user is annoyed because the whole sentence has been marked as wrong because of a small word. Now, the suggestion is : make a "memorising " system of the sentences. Let's say, the following sentence comes up . " My daughter eats an apple ". I translate it perfectly, and after a couple of sentences, i have to translate this sentence again ( this happens a lot ). Now, I make the mistake of putting " a " instead of " an " , because I did not pay enough attention. But, since you have written "an" right two senteces ago, the system would see it was a typo. The word you misspelled should be in yellow , this being a sign that you used the good word the last time you translated the sentence . Also, if you somehow stumble across the sentence a third time and you make the mistake again, the system can now mark it as invalid. </pre>

See this https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2591660 it appears you may need to delete backticks. That sounds like an interesting, but it might be hard to implement. I do get wrong answers a lot for typos :)

No problem being secure though. Sometimes the programma doesn't spot the missing -t or -à in adjectives. That Is also confusing.
