I put, "they aren't interested in playing tennis", Duo put, "they are interested in seeing many sites". I reported.

Duo: A ellas no les interesa jugar al tenis. The correct answer (hahaha): They are interested in visiting a lot of places.

Why isn't "playing tennis is not interesting to them" not right?

Why ¨les¨? What am I not understanding?

'ellos' is they. 'les' is them.

A literal translation of this sentence would be: Playing tennis is not of interest to THEM.

So, not "las"?

Not in this case. Encantar and gustar and odiar all take this form and you would use les (or nos for us or te for you etc) and never las.

However if you have a sentence like: These letters, I am going to read them.

It translates as: Estas cartas, las voy a leer.

I think so, at least. And now I can't figure out what the difference between the two cases is.

Odiar doesn't work the same way as gustar. (e.g. "Yo los odio" = I hate them)
