In the course “Learn Italian Grammar” by “@EasyAcademy”
Now on Decks as:
there seems to be some mistakes in translating few terms to English.
More specifically, in Level 34 (and maybe other levels) when talking about the possessions, the phrases with “whose” seems to be incorrect.
"Di chi e’ questa macchina? " has been translated to “whose is this car?”
Which, as far as I know, It should be “whose car is this?”
Almost all the terms like this in the course have the same problem.
You can’t send a private message (or DM) until you graduate from being a new user. Memrise calls it trust levels. A new user is someone new to the new Memrise Forum, even if they are not new to Memrise the language learning section.
A new user begins at trust level 0. This is apparently to help prevent spammers. If you read enough posts, like a few posts, and reply to a few posts you will graduate to Basic trust level which will let you send private messages. You are probably close to going up already, it does not take much even if it is a bit of a pain in the neck when all you want is an answer to a simple question or to provide feedback to course contributors.
You can see the description of trust levels and other badges by clicking on the 3 horizontal bars shaped like a square, immediately to the left of your user name, and then clicking on the word badges in the dropdown list, or click on the following link. The trust level badges are all the way down at the bottom so you will need to scroll down to see them:
The more you interact with the community in the forum, reading posts, liking posts, writing respectful/useful posts the higher up the trust levels you will go and the more abilities you will have within the forum.
There has been some posts that may be of interest to you as a new user, and reading them will help you get go up a trust level I suppose. You can access them by clicking on the blue link in the following (the black link will take you to the parent topic area):
Many of @EasyAcademy’s courses are supported by many Contributors.
On the EA courses I am supporting, I have listed the Contributors in the full (web) description.
In addition, I have created "[Course Forum]"s for the courses I support (although often under a group or subject heading and my user name, DW7) which would also include those by EA. (Other Contributors may have done the same.)
It would be helpful if other Contributors to EA’s courses also declared their support in a similar way.
PS There are 9 Contributors to this course so hopefully one of us will address any concerns (if we can).
I have been added as a contributor on this course (and have only just discovered this forum).
I’m not sure how the course was created, but it was really badly set up in the first place. In particular, there’s lots of things that aren’t perfect, but as far as I can judge they don’t cause much of a problem as long as you use the in “tapping test” mode.
However, if I’ve missed any issues that actually stop you from learning, just contact me via this forum.
I still find the course, Learn Italian Grammar, by EasyAcademy, very useful. In Level 70, however, there is the phrase “suggerire a qualcune di” both in print and in the audio. I believe it should be “qualcuno” instead of “qualcune.”
Thanks again, colva. I have encountered 2 more little errors in Learn Italian Grammar.
What should be various forms of the verb, “passare” are written and pronounced with a single ‘s.’ It happens more than once in Levels 83 and 84. The other error is that “spiegherò” is replaced, in both spelling and pronunciation, by “spiegerò,” at least in Level 83. I am not sure whether these errors pop up anywhere else.
Thanks for your work on this! It is helpful.
