Awesome course! Still requires a bit of work

I've started Esperanto this week and both me and my mom are hooked with the simplicity of the language. We just find it a little bit annoying the we keep translating Esperanto to English quite a lot more than English to Esperanto. Other than that, awesome course. I am hooked!

I agree, we need more English-to-Esperanto translation exercises. Understanding Esperanto is easy, writing is more difficult.

Totally agree! This is the only reason why I dont practice it every day. I keep forgetting words.

Another thing I'm finding annoying is when my answer is something like "I don't like apples" and it suggests another correct solution: "I do not like apples". These suggestions aren't helping me with Esperanto in any way, they are distracting.

I stumbled into that sabe problem today. We'll see if the makers of the course continue to improve it before it leaves Beta.

Indeed, during beta, expect many false negatives. For each one about which you feel confident, hit that Report button.
