For whatever reason, I have a hard time hearing the TTS say both "папе" and "маме". I never get them the first time bc it sounds like nothing to me.

I couldn't figure out папе either. I thought it was something like поипе, which didn't make sense to me.

Why is it "я дала письмо папе" and not "я дала папе письмо"?
