"You like bread and milk."

So how do you make a bet (well, without a bookie), where on the keyboard I mean, I haven't seen all the letters on the keyboard that DL had sent me to "Garden -Memrise" to learn! Anyone else wondering this? Thanks for any direction in this (so far I'm okay, but later, oy vey!) -we might need for later.
The dagesh and vowel symbols are explained in the Tips for the "Letters 2" skill. https://www.duolingo.com/skill/he/Letters-2/tips-and-notes
However, this course follows the common practice of writing most words without such pronunciation aids. So, as with vowels, we need to lrn to rd the Hbrw wrds without them.
How can I tell when the app gives you a sentence in English and asks me to translate to Hebrew, whether it is referring to "you" masculine or "you" feminine. I know the difference between אתה and את. I also know the difference between אוהב and אוהבת. But the app sometimes accepts my translation from English to Hebrew of "you" and "likes" in masculine, it says I'm wrong and gives the answer to be correct in feminine format! Why doesn't the app ask to translate these into masculine or feminine form into Hebrew? As you know "you" in English can be used for both masculine and feminine. Confusing!!!
Usually if the sentence is put in English as "you" you would translate it to the boy term, "אתה" unless they specifically said that they meant the girl term, like if they were talking about a girl and then say "you" in the sentence when it is clearly referring to the girl. Then of course you would say "את" but if you don't know which gender they are referring to, you would say it in the boy term. In this case, duolingo only gave an option for the answer to be in the girl term, even though the English sentence could have reffered to either. This is a mistake, yes, it is correct that "you" translates to "את" but that's not ALWAYS the case, and actually, usually it's not. I hope duolingo fixes this problem soon. I hope this was clear, if you have any other questions I will answer them with no prob.
