As in cacophony: a harsh discordant mixture of sounds.

I'm supposed to write kaka in Greek letters, but my keyboard doesn't have Greek letter keys obviously. Therefore I cannot proceed with the lesson

Obviously you should install a Greek keyboard. If you look at the top of the page, you will see a comment that explains how.

Please read the comments on this page, you'll find the answer.

It's a great service otherwise, many thanks for everything you provide. But I still maintain that including the Greek characters could make your excellent program even better :)

What is included in each course is decided by Duolingo. The moderators are here to assist with language related issues, but of course, we try to help learners in every area. If you read some of the other comments on this page you'll find some on how to access the Greek keyboard on your device...pc, Android, iOS. This is much easier than copy/paste. There are also prepared sites to help you learn the Greek alphabet, where to find the letters on the keyboard etc.

How do you type the accented characters?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rae.F

Assuming you have the Greek keyboard installed already. On an American QWERTY keyboard, use the ; key (just to the right of L) as though it were "shift" and then type the letter that needs an accent.

I tried many times and different ways to get the Elleniká/Greek keyboard on the android platform of my cellphone with no luck.

My suggestion is for the Duo team to insert the Greek alphabet for the Greek writing exercises... just like they insert Greek words for us to choose from on the "translate this sentence" exercises.

Is all of this lowercase?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rae.F

Duolingo is not case-sensitive. However, κακό is indeed all lower-case. All-caps would be ΚΑΚΟ.

If you are on a laptop or a computer, you can also look on the bottom right of the screen and change the language you are typing.

Cannot complete without greek letters
