If it makes you feel better, I haven't had any trouble reading your Welsh pages! :] And if you want to check spelling, grammar, etc, there's a free online tool called Cysill that absolutely saved me in school https://www.cysgliad.com/cysill/arlein/ (that's the Welsh version, but there's an English version in the top left corner of the text box too if that's easier to understand)

one thing really frustrate about duolingo ? always expect word for word perfect answers . can understand gist just fine , but if spell one word wrong , miss article , or mutate wrong ... then throw out answer . this get to point that sometimes do same question 4 or 5 times over because make small mistake . not even that bad with welsh , just bad with finer details . which true in english too .

can sometimes be unnecessarily strict , really . no welsh speaker will hang or even *lose any meaning* if you forget mutate or forget how specific word pluralise . you can put -io on *english* verb and people will understand !

and yes sure that not all " proper " welsh , and important preserve . but also just frustrate that platforms like duolingo make point to punish over such small things , and not even have handy charts or anything to explain rules again . not have much choice in platform right now so wish duolingo not try *torture* .

Even as a fluent native speaker I had the same problem, especially because I'd often type what I'd say in a verbal context instead of the strict formal (and mostly Northern) Welsh Duolingo expects

not so sure yet what do about web rings on welsh side - of course can not just change text for self , but know would also disturb function if ask owners to give bilingual function . think maybe just put as is with note ?
