The voice track is clearly saying vita β not π. I also now typed "το γράμμα β" and it said "correct! Translation: the letter pee." This is slightly confusing.

There seems to be a bug in the program.

Again sounds like vee not pi. Male vpice is awful. Please bring back female voice. I feel like giving up

Accent is a shocker...hard to make out letter sounds


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jezza11

I agree. This sound file needs replacing. It sounds like the English sound for V, ie the Greek β.

Isn't pi a mathematical symbol?

Yes, it's a mathematical symbol. Only in Greek it's pronounced "pee". Just like in English we say... L, M, N, O P Q.....
