The Greek present can be both simple or progressive in English. Depending on context. In addition "διαβαζω" both "read' and "study" . It's now included.

Hmm... Here it is again... I'm hearing a double δια, I'm hearing διαδιαβάζουν...

Try this out to hear native speakers. But I don't hear any problems with this sentences. Remember you are at the very beginning you'll get used to it. https://forvo.com/search/%CE%B4%CE%B9%CE%B1%CE%B2%CE%AC%CE%B6%CF%89/

We have checked this and find it correct. If you go to the top of this page and click on the word "διαβάζουν" you'll hear the word alone and you can also listen to it in other sentences.

"The girls and the boys are reading" should also be accepted.

I wrote everything correctly and there is a "mistake"

What was the mistake? When your sentence was rejected there was the correct sentence at the bottom of the page. You should have compared it with what you wrote to learn what your mistake was.
