Played back three times and the male voice clearly said "Yo soy cubana". I was tempted to put "cubano" as the voice was masculine, but Duolingo has often used the other gender grammar to what the voice would suggest, so I used "cubana" wrongly. Learning a new language is quite difficult and sometimes confusing with all the gender grammar and different sentence structures etc. and I really don't appreciate these unnecessary complications!
That would make it easy now but set you up for a fall later, particularly when listening to a real speaker tell you a real story about an event. The idea is to learn to pay attention to what someone is saying, not what you assume they are saying based on what gender you think their voice belongs to. FWIW, I know more than one man who has been mistaken (e.g. during a telephone conversation) for being a woman based on his voice being of a higher pitch.
I know this is so off topic but I thought is so cool that DL has so many different people here! I read someone is from Kenia? Idk where that is, but cool. Some peeps are actually Cuban? Maybe? That is cool too. Yo soy de Japan. I like how we all can be connected by one site. If anyone read this sorry for the silly nonesense. :)
Does it help your frustration levels to know that it's a text-to-speech voice? So it's actually a synthesis of a number of recordings (possibly of more than one person). Personally, I quite like it because I know that native speakers of any language tend to get lazy when enunciating their words, so this is the kind of thing I'll have to deal with when speaking with them.
Also, I've noticed a big difference in what sounds I could hear when I was at the same stage of my Spanish learning journey as you are now, versus what I can understand now. It comes down to a lot of listening to retrain the brain to hear the nuances in the target language.
The man said cubana, i listened very well and i have to write cubano. They don't speak claerly!!
Please fix the Audio. Even with earbuds is hard to tell if he is saying "Cubano" o "Cubana"
