Found a couple of errors in the last lesson:

Sentence: Aia ke kelepona ma ka lumi moe? The ACCEPTED response: "Is the phone IS the bedroom?" ("in" was not available in the word bank)

Sentence: Aia 'oe i ka lumi kuke? I was sure "lumi kuke" was a kitchen, and indeed it was, but "kitchen" was not available in the word bank. I'd guess I should have switched to the keyboard.

Mahalo!

(I should point out, by the way, that I know it's a bit of a joke to claim that I "finished" the 9-skill tree. It's more like "I finished the sapling!" But I at least temporarily have a golden owl in 'ōlelo Hawai'i, and this makes me hau'oli loa!)

Also: For a number of lessons with entries without audio, I was confronted with listening activities. I would recommend turning off listening activities until sound has been added to the whole course.

I'm looking forward to more audio being added. Seeing the word and hearing the word brings it all together. Fun learning

Seriously though this was a short tree.

For those who finished the sapling: are you any wiser on the grammar (not being sarcastic)? I can finish it and make it gold, but I don't see a point if I don't understand bacis grammar - like wordorder, cases...? I can just do skills until I memorise correct order, but that's not the goal for me.

Any good links to help with it? I searched and found nothing useful so far.

I can try to help you where I can – on a sentence-by-sentence basis. Just keep putting in the questions on the sentences you find perplexing and Iʻll do my best to explain – to the degree that I know myself whatʻs happening.

Trying to test out also prompts audio questions with no audio.
