I said "α ανανάς" and was marked wrong. I'll report that. In this first skill, it's impossible to tell aurally whether it wants one to type the letter itself, or the letter name, so both should be accepted (imo).
So "alpha" (in Greek) means "a" in English?
No, the mouseover tip misleads
alpha is the first Greek letter, whose pronunciation is similar to the English letter A a
it's the equivalent of a. it is also pronounced a.
What does this mean???
essentially nothing. its just two random words
this is a really weird thing to hear. doesn't make much sense contextually
I learnt my English alphabet just the same way: "A says a like apple"
Which is very funny, because it makes no sense (in english). The sound "a" and the first sound of "apple" are not the same.
Yes, it's all a cunning plan to baffle students!
A like apple is not the same as a like all, or familiar, or baby.....Its all Greek to me, (which is very much simpler!)
OK, I thought "ananas" meant "pineapple" so I translated it. I was, of course, marked wrong. It is not clear what is needed in these tests!
Can anyone tell me how to put an accent on the letter α when using the Greek keyboard? (it's a windows computer) thank you
Hit the key next to L before hitting the vowel key: ; + α = ά.
