Speaker answers counted as incorrect.

Currently, whenever I submit my response to the audio it counts it as incorrect. My answers are correct yet it counts it as it is incorrect. For example, the audio clip says "Đu quay" and my response is "Ferris wheel." However when I submit it, it says it's wrong and gives me the solution of it which is, "Ferris Wheel." Also this does not occur on any of the actual courses. It occurs when I try to strengthen my skills or strengthen my skill on that less. Does anyone perhaps know the problem of this?

It may want you to "type what you hear" instead of translate. I got tripped up by that when I turned on the audio questions for the first time. I don't know if all audio questions are like this or not. If that's it it will show the translation as "Ferris wheel." but the correct answer would be "Đu quay."

Oohhh, wow. Thank you, I just tested it out and yes you're right. I was quite confused. I definitely thought you had to translate instead of type what you hear.

Yes, I did the same thing. I even copied and pasted what I though was the right answer several times before I figured it out. It's happened to others too, this question comes up occasionally.
