Okay, sorry for misunderstanding. And for answering here instead of on your last reply, but the reply option is missing on that one....
It was a type in your answer one, but I used the word bank instead of trying to guess what vocab words they wanted used. I have some knowledge of the language already so I find it frustrating at times trying to "mindread" and using the word bank helps with that.
Question: "Word bank" - is that the little drop-down menu (that I've been using to verify some differences where there are several options) you get by selecting the word or phrase in what we're supposed to translate, or is there another place I can look to verify a choice (e.g. "hele i ke kula" = Go to school? Come to school?) I need to find a place to help me determine which of two or more options the program wants - because it's not always the version that comes naturally to my English-speaking head.
The Word Bank is the collection of tiles offered to you when doing a tile exercise.
It sounds like you are referring to the Hints, the possible translations that are offered when hovering over (or clicking on, depending on your platform) a word in the exercise. The Hints are not tied to the particular exercise, but rather chosen by the software based on usage throughout the course.
If you are having trouble with something, I suggest looking to these sentence discussions and asking here.
Itʻs all a bit hazy at this point, Iʻm sorry. I didnʻt take a screen cap and I was more venting my spleen than truly filing a complaint, too. But I appreciate you looking into it. I think that kāua and kākou were options. Iʻve been using the word bank a lot lately but itʻs also very possible that my memory is wrong and I opted to type in the answer on my own with this question, too.
"Hola ʻehia ka papa hoʻoikaiko kino" is not actually the only correct translation for "what time is the exercise class"-- "Aia ka papa ... ma ka hola ʻehia" should also be correct. But I too would like to know if there's a version of this sentence that can start with "hola ʻehia..."
e + verb: future tense/mood (e hana au "I will work"); or, infinitive (e hana "to work"); or, imperative mood (e hana ʻoe "Work thou!")
"Work out" is an infinitive, so there is an "e" before the verb.
In a french translation of your sentence, it's easier to understand because we can see in "À quelle heure le professeur va-t-il à l'école?" that the verb go is conjugated, so it's not an infinitive, so no "e". In english it's a bit harder, I'm not sure, but I think that go is not an inifinitive too because of the "does". So go isn't an infinitive, no "E" before "hele".
