How do I know which sentences I've corrected?

I'm skimming through the course with the "Test out"-button trying to correct wrong sentences, but I've got stuck on Plurals as I think I keep getting sentences with mistakes in them, losing all my hearts in the process. So when I redo it I get some of them again. Does this mean that I send a correction twice? Is there a way to avoid this without having to remember every individual sentence?

På forhånd takk.

I don't know whether they do get sent twice, but either way we're happy to receive them, so don't worry about sending too many! :)

There seems to be a slight delay in displaying the reports for us, so this is why it takes a little bit of time to get to them (especially the ones in the later lessons), but we do appreciate the help.

It would be nice if you used the comment section before reporting any mistakes. Maybe some natives, like me, can tell you how it is. Well, if you "know"/guess it should be right; Go ahead! :)

Have fun learning! ;-)

I am a native and I'm just going through to correct the mistakes. ^^ Some them are clearly wrong, like some lessons accepting "sandwich" or "eter" in Norwegian, while others don't.

'Ete' isn't strictly wrong, is it? It's in Bokmål, so I thought it was just rather archaic.

It is neither wrong nor archaic. I believe what fveldig was trying to say is that it is wrong for those words not to be accepted across the board, which is true.

Ah, I see. Would it not be unusual, then, to hear someone use 'ete' in place of 'spise' in general conversation?

Not at all, it is widely used in many dialects.

There is however a preference for 'spiser' in the dialects that most closely resemble what the TTS of this course is speaking.

I'm a Norwegian and testing out the course as well - but I get a lot of translations from Norwegian to English, where I can't contribute that much. Is there any way to only get the tasks that translate from English to Norwegian?

AFAIK there is no way to do this, I just type in the English sentences and wait for the Norwegian ones.
