The audio should be fixed. It sounds as if there is an added ʻokina before Oʻahu >>> No ʻOʻahu kona ʻanakala
@tnAu8 How can you have an audio? Do you use duo on a mobile device or computer? I don't have an audio at all in Hawaiin
Perhaps this thread is linked to several variations of this phrase (ex. audio, word bank, multiple choice, etc.). Mine was an audio recording.
For me, Hawaiian won’t load on mobile because it’s in beta. I use a tablet in PC view and a PC.
Maybe you haven't updated the app in a while? Otherwise it's probably the platform you're on.
Yes, there isn't an 'okina there, but because "no" ends with an "o" and "O'ahu" starts with it, you have to separate the vowels with a glottal stop. Sort of how we sometimes use "an" instead of "a" in English.
Oʻahu / Oahu is part of the Hawaiian island chain and home to the state capital in the city of Honolulu.
(kona) means his or her

Actually, kona means 'her' or 'his.' So I can assume that it means 'their,' because even though that's a plural term, it can still be used towards one person.
I put in "Their uncle is from O'ahu." and I got marked wrong. Maybe we should include non binary pronouns as well?
I think right now its focused on teaching you the basics of Hawaiian. Their would have an entirely different from Kona. It is trying to get you to first understand that Kona is the pronoun used for referring to a single person entity. When teaching a langauge, you want people to understand the basics first before you start showing them the nuances of how you can play with some of the words like using a plural pronoun to refer to a single entity.
