Just Dulingo's robotic pronunciations. Unless they change it, listening skills are not going to improve

Not much, japanese souns have less variations than englih.

Why is it an("the" was not accepted) intersection


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/michael.fe4

I think "the" should be accepted, so I'd say report it. However, without any other context I feel like "a" is a bit more natural. "The" implies you were already talking about it or something.

By intersection, they just mean crossroads, right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tara_han

Turns out it will accept 'crossing', I guess that will do.

That's what I'm assuming.

That's what it is in my dictionary

交叉点 is incorrect

What is the correct kanji?

Pronunciation is wrong on this. sounds like she is saying KEN and not TEN


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/thenakedoracle

Ear wax leveks differs person to person ... Mine must be on a high level considering what I heard (<sub>_</sub>;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harli

I hear TEN, but I thought this recording of KOU sounded like HOU.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/XRavishX

It would have been worse without the text, just like in other Duolingo languages. Japanese is no different. Sounds can sound like similar ones and without the text it may get confusing.

The intonation is way off, they should get a real human voice for it. And make sure it is spoken by a native speaker.
