Duo rejected "thanks dad", requires "thank you dad" -- seems arbitrary.

Just report, it's still beta, so there are many translation variations missing.

Baba is a respectful greeting - therefore it rarely is "dad" but "father" :) And there had been an explanation as to "Thank you" being nicer and more formal; but that I would say also depends on personal preference.

I learned this one from Rafiki :)

Does anyone know when will we be able to HEAR as well as see the Swahili?

Latest when it is out of the beta phase. But there are a lot of other good sources online (just search YouTube f.e.)

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