This is surprisingly similar to Italian "soffitto"

I understand ceiling is the inner part and roof is the outer part. Sometimes its interchangeable in English. Could roof work? or you have a different word for roof?

"roof" = "dach"

Due to the audio (female voice) I wrote białe instead of biały - even on turtle speed I definitely heard an e at the end, not an y. But strangely enough it was accepted without even a typo remark.

It's a known bug that the audio exercises don't inform you that you made a typo :| Not to mention that a different, existing form should be treated as a mistake, not a typo...

I hear it as "biały", and the slow audio seems really clear to me... but then, e/y difference is somehow one of the most difficult for the learners to hear.
