This was WAYYYY too quick to be able to hear... I still can't hear it even with knowing what it says.

With some training you'll be able to hear it. No worries.

that is so fast and one can hear near to nothing

Same comment as others, way too fast to be understandable at this stage of learning, sounds more like the word for vegetables (ירחות) than to walk הולך

This speaker always seems to add extra syllables. There is a sound between the הילדות and הולכות.

I wrote "the girls are walking by her side" and was marked wrong. The phrase I used is the same as "walking next to her." I reported it.

Morfix explains: ליד means "by, near, at, beside, next to" https://www.morfix.co.il/%D7%9C%D7%99%D7%93

"By one's side" and "beside one" are pretty much the same thing. In this case, "by her side" and "beside her."

Many thanks in advance, Duo Hebrew Team!
