And, the same for "Spanish-Español?"

And "French-Francés." "French-francés?"

I just realized that all answers are initially capitalized (The lady-La señora). I think this can be slightly confusing since you are asking for words versus a sentence. And, perhaps incorrect as the three examples shown above.

Yes, it is true that most of the time individual words and phrases are capitalized in the exercises. One you realize that, there really isn't any confusion, I think.

I wasn't confused initially, because I didn't notice it. But, when it was mentioned in the lesson that languages aren't capitalized in Spanish, it was strange to see the languages capitalized. I think, since the section is "Write the word you read" and not based on sentences, all the words shown should be lowercase unless they need to be capitalized.

I think this should also be addressed in the "Repeat the words" section. Every time I see something, it gets reinforced in my brain, for better or for worse. :-)

Languages aren't capitalized in Spanish, however, since it's the first word of a phrase we capitalize them. Keep in mind that the program doesn't require you to input the capital letters to be considered correct.

just wait until you start learning the slang of spanish from certain countries, you going to think they don't know how to speak spanish LOL for example and a sneak peak if you don't already know.... "porque and por que" (why and because) are used interchangably and can be written pk or pq for their own shorthand way of writing. or "que estas haciendo" is written like this... que aces...que ases... k aces.... q aces... and so on... you will see alot of Vs and Bs changed too. INSTEAD of writing the word "work" or "job" as in Trabajo... you may see it written "travajo" or even "travago"... or even trabago for a really weird way of writing it, but it is understood when written. They write it how it sounds like it could look in written form phonetically in some ways. keep that in mind when you start talking to people in text. Hope that helps, Happy learning!!
