Is “We should clean the floor “ not a correct answer? It rendered it incorrect.

"We should clean the floor" is fine. It should be accepted now.

I was taught that "We should clean..." = "Pono kākou e ho'oma'ema'e..." The exercise states "E ho'oma'ema'e kākou..." which indicates the command form. The command form for "kākou" is "let us all." This is why I hope moderators are reading these.

This would be easier to memorize if the correct answer was "Let's all clean the floor," when using "kakou." This reasoning is true for "Let's both clean the floor" when using "kaua."

I'm so happy that there's audio now,

but I also wish I could tap each individual word to hear one word at a time. That would really help too, especially for the longer words.
