When you think you've learned a word, all of a sudden there's a male and female version with the same meaning!

Haha, yes :D Same here :)

«Ele» is like «ei», but female form?..


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bnk7108

Yep, exactly :)

That's kind of confusing, since ele is Portuguese for "he". I don't even study Portuguese much, but apparently enough to be confusing!

Do I have to use the term "om" when we refer to the human being in general?


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

Depends. Om is for both (= human), but also Ei could be used for a mixed group (Ei beau apa - group of boys or boys and girls)

Due to the ele option not being there, we're unable to go fourth. Frustrating.

Sometimes, I think, you can just try deleting everything and click on the SKIP option -at least you may be able to continue. I did not have this problem since my lesson was just to translate into English.
