When you hear "λάμδα" in a "type the Greek you hear" task, you would expect written "λαμδα" is the correct answer. Instead, "λ" is expected. This is obviously a bug.

That chapter is full of bugs. It will disappear in the step after the ABC. After that the voice is just a bit quick. They are working on a new voice...

Λ-λ is such a beautiful letter. It brings me memories from Half-Life. Tho its curious that they have not used it for the L letters but for the A.

I'm SO delighted by the way I've been learning the greek alphabet and greek in general here in Duo.

lambda

Also, as the wiki page says, it can be written as λάμβδα and λάβδα, but: ¿Does this influence on its pronunciation when its spelled in different ways?

Honestly, this drives me nuts. If you say Lamda, then how are we meant to tell if you want "λ" or "λάμδα"?

We're sorry the bugs in this lesson are stronger than all Duo's efforts. Just move on to the next lesson....Basic 1. If you want to have a look at the alphabet go here:

How am I supposed to know in a listening exercise if it's the letter by character or the letter by spelling?

Actually, it's quite understandable, bearing in mind the trait of Greek language regarding letter names. You should maybe just consider adding both letter name or the letter value as acceptable.

Λαμδα should also be acceptable as it doesn't specify to state the "letter" or "spell the letter"
