A complicated relationship
I love this site SOOOOOO much!! However, the lady who says the words can be unclear. Also, when I get the word that it is support to be but spell it wrong it doesn't give it to me. :( but over all I love it! Thank you Duolingo!!!!!
Duo makes some allowance for misspelling/typos, but if the typo produces a real word then it does not know that you did not mean the word that you typed. Also spelling is important so it is useful to get it right.
Italian is very easy for spelling once your ear is attuned to the sounds and you know the alphabet/pronunciation.
