I think the "letters" lessons are more to teach you how the letters fit together to form words, they don't actually teach you what the letters are (except in the course notes). I used an iOS app called "Write It! Hebrew" to learn the letters, which teaches you how to write them and read them and helps you to memorize them.
?אתא אוהב and את אוהבתMaybe it was because of the distinction between
The first one is feminine "you" with feminine form of the verb, and the second is masculine with masculine form of the verb.
So if you write a mixed one, it tries to tell you a typo towards one or the other, but it might not be the one you're thinking of.
(Darn it, switch "first" and "second" there: Duolingo posts the text differently from how it looks in edit mode!)
There is some good news!
As of today, there are lessons in the app that teach the letters and the nikud! Just make sure you have the newest version of the app.
From what I understand, this is not a feature planned for the browser version, just the app.
