Quote from: Ranpalan on December 14, 2010, 02:42:40 PMIf you can use a textbox to get the answer, you just put the sentence in the question along with a request to correct it, and then have the correction set as the answer.
QuoteYes, Serika, that's another feature, although I'm quite sure most people can figure out that the wrong word is used even without mastering the language, and a spelling mistake in a three-letter word, as well as incorrect capitalisation, should be evident to anyone who's spent any time learning English.
