I was surprised to see « de la confiture de framboises » indicated as incorrect (the final 's' getting the red strikethrough), not as an acceptable alternative. Only the singular « framboise » was indicated as correct, although the question was raised a year ago and it was noted that either is acceptable.
The plural « framboises » is clearly not incorrect and should not be marked so. Otherwise, it looks like Bonne Maman et St Dalfour may need to change their labelling.
Dictation exercise A1
They are both correct answers and should show as such but only one appears to be. Could you use the 'report it' button in your Correction board please?
Re: (@Maarten) Of course ! We'll try and resolve the issue as soon as we can.
Merci bien !
Bonne journée !
Thanks Céline - there is no “report it” function for these exercises (only for quizzes). I have raised this with Rowen previously and the advice was to report through QandA for these, as they often need a language check. I guess even this relatively simple situation fits with that point.
Bonjour Maarten !
Here it seems to be a misunderstanding, as "framboises" is indeed marked correct - The message says "Well done", but also gives you the alternate "framboise" as correct, and because of the way the system is geared, makes it sound like "our answer" is better, whereas in this case, they are perfectly equivalent. This is a formulation issue on our part, which thanks to you we're now looking into to improve :) Merci beaucoup!
