How are we meant to know which 'ee' sound is needed when translating this from sound alone?

    Good point! That shows you already have a good grasp of the alphabet if nothing else! There is no context here therefore any of the three ee letters should be correct. However, if I understand correctly, the Duo course only allows for one correct answer for listening exercises, so this sentence has to be reviewed.
    This skill will be changed in the new tree, so I suggest a little patience, learn the alphabet, complete the skill, and move on to the more fun stuff! :)

    Is "i" for the Latin "i" or the Greek iota?

    Shouldn't both το γράμμα ι and το γράμμα γιώτα be accepted as correct since there's no way that I know of to differentiate if the recording is saying just the letter or its full name? :(

    I am glad someone else noticed this. Seems like something they should feel ashamed of having not already addressed.

    When the exercise type is "Type what you hear", then ι, η, and υ should all be accepted as answers.

    I chose the correct answer and was corrected. I don't understand
