Is this correct?
Ni estas atendas la aŭtobuson.

Shouldn't it be like this?
Ni atendas la aŭtobuson.

Or like this?
Ni estas atendantoj por la aŭtobuso.

No.

Ni atendas la aŭtobuson.
Yes.
Or like this?
Ni estas atendantoj por la aŭtobuso.
It should be "Ni estas atendantaj la aŭtobuson". But the simple form would be preferable.

Someone has got to tell Chuck Smith

Why wouldn't "someone" be you?

That said, Chuck's relationship with Transparent Language came to and end in June, so he's no longer the person to contact.

No. It is from the Transparent Language.

Honestly, I feel really bad about getting someone in trouble, but there are lots of mistakes. Maybe about one or two every month.

Secondly, every language learning resource seems to have mistakes in it. Probably because the workers are rushed and not paid good enough.

The word of the day is still an amazing resource. I have it as one of my start pages. It so nice to hear a sentence and see it in context.

My advice to the creator is to use this website:
http://beta.visl.sdu.dk/visl/eo/tools/spelling.php

This website will find almost all the errors. You still have to be careful though.

My estimation was that every third sentence had a problem. The good news is that the program was just updated. There should be far fewer problems and all-new audio with a variety of speakers.

As for "employees not being paid enough" - this is Esperanto we're talking about. The WOTD was started by a family member of an unnamed Transparent employee who did it as a passion project - and all updates were done by volunteers.

The main volunteer does have a Patreon page, though, if you'd like to encourage him to take on more projects. ridulo.gif
