What about 'Thanks'?

That would work, just report it and move on, there are still some very basic errors (Like not excepting Hi in place of Hello)

So "Thanks, Mom." is not too informal?

What is the difference between "asante" and "marahaba?"

"Marahaba" is a specific term used in response to the greeting "Shikamoo".

The notes for the "Greetings 2" lesson break it down well: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/sw/greetings2

Why not: "Mother thank you"????

Sounds kind of dramatic to me. Normally the name goes after, if it is the person you are talking to. Unless it is to get their attention. Just report it and see if its added.

The Swahili audio is not working. Any suggestions? Thank you.

"thanks, mother," or "mother, thanks" not acceptable?

guess "Mother, thanks" is too informal

"Mother, thanks," or "Thanks, Mother" should be acceptable. the less formal 'thanks' works when the sentence is "Asante, Baba" (we can even use 'Dad' (but not 'Mom') ntakibazo!
