You might be using the wrong character. There's two that are basically the same thing, but one is longer than the other. They have names but I'm forgetting them. The short one looks like ייו but the tall one, which is what you want, looks like יין
So, in the previous exercise, where we had 'She likes water' I heard something like (transcription): Hee ohevet maim.
Now when I look at the letters it sounds like: At ohev yoy. So for you it's just ohev, not ohevet, if I am getting it correct?
