TIPS TO HELP YOU LEARN + HOW TO REPORT A PROBLEM
To add the accent. When you are on the Greek keyboard, you first click on the letter on the right of the L [:/;] then the letter you want the accent on.
You can put it wherever you want. Τα κορίτσια διαβάζουν μιαν εφημερίδα, μιαν εφημερίδα τα κορίτσια διαβάζουν, τα κορίτσια μιαν εφημερίδα διαβάζουν etc are valid but change where emphasis is put. In this course we follow the SVO order because it is impossible to add all possible orders for all possible sentences. Greek's syntax is very flexible.
Why use ta and not oi?
Because κορίτσι is grammatically neuter, not masculine or feminine.
The grammatical gender is not necessarily connected to anything in real life.
το αγόρι (the boy) is also neuter, though boys are male. το άτομο (the person) is also neuter, though a person can be male or female.
