the hint says the word is ντουντουκια, when I select that answer it says it is wrong and says the answer can be ντουντουκια.
Duolingo is great, but it's crazy that you have silly mistakes like this in your app. I've been recommending it to friends but you must sweep through the app and get rid of silly mistakes like this
We agree that this is a really silly word. But what is important is that you learn the double consonants in Greek which create a different sound then the individual letters.
For example: "ντ" is pronounced "Dd" (as 'Denmark") not "n" + "t" and this word contains that sound twice.
In addition, there is the "diphthong" "ου" which is not pronounced as "o" + "υ" but as one sound as in "shoe" which is also used twice in this word. See how much explaining needed to show what one Greek word could help you learn.

And let's not forget that there are 70+ skills where you'll find many useful words. BTW Duolingo is full of funny words. It's a policy of the administration to keep learned on their toes.
Ok, this may seem like a lot of information. You can just bookmark it to use later.
