I am curious about the voice. People have mentioned the robot voice in the comments I have seen in the other languages on Duo, but I have not felt that it was that much robot like. But this sounds a lot more so to me. I am just starting out in Portugese, though, and my only real exposure to it in the past has been hearing it and determining it was not Spanish. It this voice as true to human sounding as the other languages?
I think the "ee" sound is normal at the end of the word. I noticed 3 different pronounciation for "e": "é", "e" (like the "a" in "alone", or the French "e"), and "ee". Though, I don't here your "kua", but a"ko" (at least at the slow speed), maybe a very slight think like a diphtong, if there's a "u" sound, it's very slight.
Regular verbs in English have only one change in the present tense--they add an s in the third person singular. I eat, you eat he/she eats We eat, they eat. I sing, you sing, he/she sings, we sing, they sing. Even irregular verbs like to be and to have generally end in an s in the third person singular.
