the voice said, "Il mange." So I typed, "Il mange." Duilingo said my answer was wrong. It said the correct answer it, "Ils mangent." I say they both sound the same: il mange, ils mangent. So my answer should have been accepted as correct. Am I missing something?
thanks, helen. that is my point. my further point is that duolingo might adapt their format so that it does not reject a correct answer. it rejected "il mange" failing to recognize that it is identical in sound to ils mangent, and therefore just as correct as ils mangent. it is a basic rule of good pedagogy not to scold a student for giving a correct answer.
