Hi Chan - I'm sending you an email to respond to this as this is a system-related question, which I can best handle by writing to you directly.

Click on the Dashboard at the top and  then when you're back at the dashboard you can scroll down to the lessons.  Good luck!

No estamos ninos?

Instead of just adding "Me llamo", I wrote "me llamo Juan" inadvertently giving the answer "Me llamo Juan Juan". This is accidental! Yet Kwiziq marks it incorrect! Almost certainly, this would never occur in a practical situation.

Also when using my tablet, I sometimes miss out a question by accident. Kwiziq should prompt that all the questions have not been answered. This is also accidental! Yet Kwiziq marks it incorrect!

Hola William

I've included "Me llamo Juan" as a possible correct answer because as you say it is clearly accidental, and what we are testing is "Me llamo..."

As per your other query, I am passing it on to a colleague. Hopefully they'll give you an answer soon.

Thanks for writing to us,

Inma
