"The girl" should be accepted. It says that it should be the LITTLE girl, but just "the girl" would work as well. There is nothing to indicate the word "little".

If "The girl wants to eat" is entered, this error message appears: ""the girl" is no longer accepted for "bé gái". Please use "bé gái" or "cô bé" instead. "

This is unclear, since it seems to suggest that "bé gái" is not accepted for "the girl" but is still an option along with "cô bé".

I am having a hard time with "a" and "the". There seems to be no consistent way to choose. I thought "mot" meant "one," and should only be used when we are talking about a single thing, Yet it seems to translate as "a" or "the" and when it is not present, we also get "a" and "the" as translations.
