I think you should accept present-tense answers for "Where did you come from?"

Should only accept the present tense ...

@Adree agreed. Present tense is 100% correct and should be accepted.

mucho gusto means nice to meet you. you should use that instead of gusto conocerte.

Perdon is also pardon. If you want something for I'm sorry, lo siento is a better choice.

No, perdón also means excuse me as in, "Excuse me, do you know where this is", etc. Both pardon and excuse me should be accepted

Please consider accepting simply "I like that." The "one" is redundant in this case.

No, it's correct that way. "I like that" means "Me gusta eso", you need "that one" to specify that it's "ese" = that one (and not another).

You need to be much more flexible on the English side of this.

No comprendo is less similar to I don't understand when compared with no entiendo

Not all translations are exact, and "I don't comprehend" is accepted

Phrases I knew but took me a while to guess:

Gusto conocerte - guessing things like "pleased to meet you" or "glad to meet you"

De nada - generally means "you're welcome" but literally means "it's nothing" and could just as easily be used that way in response to "gracias"

Voy de camino - guessing things like "I'm coming"

Others people have already mentioned

I tried I like concerts and even considered I like concrete for Gusto conocerte, Luckily English is spoken fairly widely in Spain.

I tried I like concerts too :) And for voy de camino, camping (voy-voyage and the camino-camper, so voyage with a camper) haha

"No sé" and "no comprendo" are two phrases I needed a lot in that one-year-long Spanish class I once had. I did learn a few things but that beginners class was not a beginner class.

So many variable ways to say these. You should include the literal translation as correct when someone can't figure out what it is that you want exactly. "Where are you from" is wrong because no question mark?

"De donde vienes" is a present tense question and should be translated as "where do you come from?"

That's what I tried, I never would have thought of using the past tense. Pretty frustrating.

It's more accurate indeed. However, present tense can be used (and it is) to refer to the past, it's something called "historical present", so it's actually not wrong. Both should be accepted.

And this is why you take Latin... I got 12/21 with virtually no prior knowledge of Spanish and no guessing :)

With guessing I was able to get 19/21 mainly using French.

You should have some flexibility on "quien es"? If someone knocks on the door, you might say quien es, which would translate as who's there? Or if you answer the phone, it would be who's calling? I wouldn't ordinarily translate quien es as who is it. It's not literally wrong, but it usually better translates as something slightly different in many situations.

High school Spanish was a long time ago. Missed over half. (My first though for tengo hambre was "I have a hamburger?")

how much does this cost is actually "Cuanto cuesta este"

Cuanto cuesta is simply "how much"

cuanto cuesta is fine to use..

As others have said, there are many variations on these phrases, and many that are dependent on the situation.

That being said, the only one that I disagreed with was "voy de camino." That's an overly structured way to say "I'm coming" that I'm not sure is used very often.

Why the Mexican flag when the language is called 'Spanish'? The flag should be the Spanish one

Reading too many comments wanting strict, literal translations, when strict, literal translation is the worst (as in WORST) way to learn any language (at least if you want to talk to somebody else in that language). Most of the phrases are situational, so the translations have to go on that situation.

However, I have to say it: "Estamos listo" is wrong, "Estamos" is plural (we) and "listo" is singular.

"Estamos listo" has a grammar mistake, the correct one shoud be "Estamos listos" because both are plural the number should be the same.

Also allow "How much is it?"?

Yes!

The “cost” part is heavily implied in the question

You're missing accent marks on the 'o' in "adios" and the 'a' in "vamonos". You should also have the accent on the first 'e' in "ese" in the phrase "Me gusta ese" since you're not using it as a demonstrative pronoun followed by a noun. Or, just change it to "Me gusta eso", which would mean "I like that".

wth?!?!? I just did the french version, was pretty sure i typed how much does it cost and thought i typed it correctly, but thought ok, guess not...

now the exact same thing!! but this time i was extra carefull, typed it atleast 5 times made sure it was right... how?!? Surely capitals spaces and questionmarks dont matter, they do not anywhere else on the site.

my mind is blown... there must be gremlins in the computer..

Loads of iffy rejections and errors, mostly all mentioned above, but looking at the update schedule it's clearly best to just take the 5 points and move on...
