Tried "zeta zeta", but Duo reported it as "not being Greek". I'm not using greek letters on my computer at the moment, so... :/

Yes, we can only accept Greek letters not transliteration. Here is a good virtual keyboard/dictionary combo: http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/greek_modern.htm

There have been advancements since I wrote to you. Did you get the Greek keyboard? See here for keyboards and also using Eng. characters. here

Look at the whole page there is a lot of new advice. Good luck.

That's fine. The rationale is that as long as the learner becomes familiar with the Greek letters they can be presented in any number of ways. Here are some resources you might like: Resources.

"zeeta zeeta", and in the precedent lesson "eeta already"... They coudn't have prepared a more nonsensical introduction to Greek. Hope this will end soon.

I want to suggest that "z zeta" should be accepted as well. I was told it was wrong in the exercise but it is the spelling given in my Shorter Oxford and Chambers dictionaries as well as on Wikipedia and my Greek-alphabet mug. In fact, I've never seen "zeeta" outside Duolingo. (The same would probably go for the other "ee" γράμματα.) Cheers -- Simon

Yes, it's been added. We now have 17 versions of this two letter exercise. :) With many thanks.

I wrote "ζ ζ". I got this incorrect:
1. "You typed in English, not Greek". <-- this is an error. Not sure why it's reporting this for incorrect answers.
2. It was looking for "ζ ζήτα"? Why not "ζ ζ"?

Clearly, this is some sort of technical glitch with the Duobot. The Greek team has no way of editing the Duobot but we do report all these errors. In the mean time, you know what is correct here so if you can go on to the following skills you will find far fewer glitches. Thank you for the input.
