Translation:Emilian doesn't like Mathematics

It is ironic that this education module is one of the worst in terms of its translations and understanding of English. I think I have spent more time sending reports and suggestions than on Swahili learning. Sigh. I think I need to just get to the end of this section and then have a break to chill.
I understand they were rushed into Beta to satisfy the demands of "mkuu wa Duo". I don't think they had time for proofreading, and with (apparently) only one native speaker of English on the Swahili team, that is a tremendous and time-consuming task.
This might be the worst section. I haven't seen one so completely inconsistent with what it deems the right answer, nor one with so many consistent grammatical errors. Pretty much every one I have to report as "my answer should be accepted" and "the english translation has an error"
Since "Somo" apparently also means "lesson", could this also means that Emilian doesn't like a particular math lesson? "Emilian doesn't like the math lesson" was not accepted, but, having little confidence in Duo at this juncture, I turn to you all for the right answer.
