"Gentle pupils" sounds strange in English. My Kenyan Swahili says that "polite" or "well mannered" are also possible translations; they certainly sound better

Of course, you're right. Earlier in this DL course, DL itself translated mpole/wapole as polite. So DL is inconsistent at this moment in time. I'll report it. They will start accepting it, judging by their responses to previous reporting. DL is to be commended for its readiness to correct their errors and update their courses:-)
