to my ears ruhig sounds like "toyig" .Not what I expected

I wrote the uncle is relaxed and it marked it as being wrong. Isnt relaxed the same as calm?

I wrote 'the uncle is quiet' and that was a go!

"relaxed" = "entspannt"

Writing: 'The uncle is calm' sounds very strange in English. I wrote 'Uncle is calm' and was marked wrong!

it sounds like tusch which is not a word. I checked on google translate and it sounded like ruhig

The ending of "ruhig" sounds a bit dialectical ("Pfälzisch" maybe): "ruhich"

and the beginning "t" you are hearing belongs to "ist".

Hopefully these two hints help you to hear it, but even with them in mind the record is.. not really good.

the last word doesn't sound like ruhig
