Forum Rocket German German Grammar Ich möchte gerne 1 Stunde lang das Internet benutzen.

Ich möchte gerne 1 Stunde lang das Internet benutzen.

From 21.1
Ich möchte gerne 1 Stunde lang das Internet benutzen.
I would like to use the Internet for 1 hour.

In this phrase the tutor clearly says eine Stunde which seems correct as Stunde is feminine .
Yet the only way to score 100% with the speech recognition is to say ein Stunde.

It seems that when the text contains the numeral 1, the speech recognition expects to hear ein.

Is the tutor right or the speech recognition? Is there a difference between how the indefinite article and the number are declined?

As a general point there are problems with speech recognition and numbers and times.

Hi sfpugh,

I've just changed the entry to Ich möchte gerne eine Stunde lang das Internet benutzen. I think the speech recognition only recognized "ein" because it was written as a numeral, so it should work now.
Please let me know if you have any other problems!
