This is the alphabet section so you will see letters and often a word to demonstrate and help you remember it. "m mum" is in English and if you hover you'll see the Greek. "μ μαμά". If you see the English you'll be expected to type it in Greek or or the Greek using Latin letters. Do you have a Greek keyboard?

"mum = μαμα" The alphabet sections are confusing to me, but this one really threw me. "Mum" is very British. "Mom" is very American. I was not thinking in British English the other day (rarely do) when I posted the comment. By the way, I am having a blast and look forward to my Duolingo time.
