You can ask a moderator that contributed to the course. They planned it, so they should be able to give u an answer.

In Romanian the pronouns are accorded to the nouns. They are: I)eu, II)tu, III)el/ea, and for plural I)noi, II)voi, III)ei/ele. The articles can be ignored, because me(eu) cannot be more than a only one person. Same thing with you(tu). In English "you" can be "tu" or "voi" from Romanian.

Is it ok to omit articles? A man is un Bărbat and a woman is o femeie. I am just curious about and this is the first time I try to learn this language.

No, one shouldn't ignore articles.
