Finally a straightforward, clear exercise from this course lol

The other way around is kind of boring... I'd rather have to write the Danish numbers!

I just got this as a speaking exercise (desktop version) but it only recognised "en". I have a suspicion that the speech recognition is converting the other digits to numerals and that those are then rejected.

This speaking of the numbers isn't registering for me, either.

I used an actual recording of a Dane speaking and it didn't recognize it. It makes it impossible to pass this section of practice.

Why doesn't it count when you write the numbers in Roman numerals? If I am needing to write them in Danish, I understand you need to see if we can spell them correctly. But when translating them into English, it makes no sense, as we aren't being tested on our knowledge of English, per say.

We are, in the sense that it asks you to translate it into the assumed (or chosen) known language of the course, which is English. It's not asking you to translate into anything you know, it's asking for you to translate it into English.

I think you misunderstand my question. I am learning Danish, not English. If I chose English as my known language, then yes, it is asking me to translate into something I know. English.

I believe, there is a misunderstanding here :) Roman numerals: I, V, X,.. Arabic numerals: 1, 2, 3, 4,.. I guess you are referring to the latter?

It has one chat for all the styles of this question so English to Danish and vis versa as written, spoken or chosen all in one

This is just boring to type out on a phone.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HideharuKi1

This is a training of typing on phone.

That was tricky to get those in the right order


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/neurosisberg

I don't think it's fair that it doesn't accept the actual numbers. Other answers accept the typed numbers but in this case "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10" is not accepted. Why is that?

    Så hvad er 'én'?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ratonocho

    The box for seks is missing!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nadine902473

    What's the use of an exercise such as this. We are not learning to count in English!

    Reverse translation is also useful when learning a new language.
