I'm not sure what you are asking. As a newcomer you might like these links. On the page with the sentences on the top left you will see *"Tips & notes" which among other useful information includes different ways to get the Greek keyboard. There is also the link to the Greek Forums with other information and even a way to use English letters for the Greek.
Also, for the two main verbs in Greek. είμαι I am and έχω I have here is a good site click here
Best wishes. If you have any questions just ask.
Hey! I just noticed something, in the abc tips and notes there's only 23 of the letters listed. The forgotten letter is x. (that explains why I was staring at the x wondering on it's pronunciation) Also the list is split up at the end, which looks weird. I'm not sure where to report this, hence just writing it here.
Ok, you scared me there but there are 24 letters in the Tips Notes in the ABC skill. And the Xx is there near the end after Φφ....
Τ-τ Ταυ // Taf|T as in Table| \
Υ-υ* Ύψιλον//Ypsilon|EE as in sEE|
Φ-φ Φει (φι) //Fee|F as in Fun| on the keyboard at Ff

Ψ-ψ ψει (ψι) /Psee|PS as in liPStick| on the keyboard at Cc
Ω-ω* Ωμέγα //Omega|O as in Organ| on the keyboard at Vv
Αυτός έχει ένα παιδί: the answer is he has a child, but the solution says he's a child and marked me wrong .
He has a child was the answer but it also said the He's a child was correct as well? Not sure why? And if both can be considered correct than my answer "He's a child" should of been adequate
If you check the comment above your comment and you'll see that "He's a child." does not mean "He has a child." The problem is that there is some sort of glitch in the program and we have not been able to correct this. Please help by telling us where you encountered this sentence: the Tree, Strengthen skill, test out or listening. Thank you.
I guessed "He is a child" Correct answer shown: "He's a child."
The correct answer should be (I think): He HAS a child. "He's" is not a contraction for "he has" in this sense. "He's a child" is not a natural English contraction of "He has a child."
You are confusing me. The Gr. "Αυτός έχει ένα παιδί." is "He has a child." which is shown above. Nowhere do we use "He's..." which is as you say "He is... .
So, where did you see "He's" (He is) which as I said does not appear in our incubator?
I received the same response in the Basics 2/2. I entered "He is a child" for "Αυτός έχει ένα παιδί" and Duolingo stated the correct answer is "He's a child." These are both the same in English (He's = He is). The bigger problem is the correct answer is "He has a child." Just letting you know it isn't fixed. Thanks!
I believe this is a "feature" of Duolingo where it will automatically contract and uncontract contractions... without regard to whether that contraction is possible in that situation in English.
"he has" can turn into "he's" in some cases (e.g. he has gone now / he's gone now) but not others, but the code isn't clever enough to recognise that "he has a child" cannot turn into "he's a child" and may show you that anyway.
That's not something that's under our control as course maintainers as far as I know.
I incorrectly wrote it was "he is a child", which was incorrect, but it showed the right answer as "he's a child". This is very misleading, as only when I came to the discussion did I see that it's actually he "has" a child. "He's" does not mean "he has".
This is an automatic contraction done by Duolingo -- not something that course maintainers have control over.

The translation, "He has a child." is correct. The Correction in red, "He's a child." is incorrect, I think. Moving right along....
Oh, dear you have just seen one of the major and most persistent cases of a Duolingo Bug. For some reason, the computer decided that "He has..." should be rendered as "He's..." There are other mentions of it and we've reported it but still it appears from time to time.
It would help a lot if you could get a screenshot next time you see such a thing.
