Hi James,

I am sorry. Though I think it's not that reasonable, this is how the system works. Try your best to get 100% correct! 加油!加油!加油!

I think you typed a 把 instead of a 吧 as well. This issue notwithstanding, I've also been pretty frustrated to have been marked up for a coma or a period, which CPod does not teach at any level, that's rather disingenuous I thought :(

加油 for changing the system !

I've also been stung by the same scoring system. Seems I must get all commas and full stops in there to get a full score.

What I am doing is just ignoring the test score if that's the case and looking at my marked paper. If I've gotten the Chinese right, that's good enough for me. I don't care what the computer says.
