problem with spelling "happy"

it tells me to spell "happy". so i spell "Hau'oli" and it tell me i got it wrong and it corrects me with "Hau'oli". very aggravating. i can't finish the lessons so i have to go on to another language. i come back later and it's the same.

(mobile) I also had this problem and began to copy & paste from google translate. I believe it's because there's no 'okina. I went on my iphone options and selected hawaiian as a keyboard language which had the 'okina in it. I haven't had the problem since! Hope this helps.

Well, I just emailed them with a screen shot to the report a bug thing. I assume that’s the best way.

Well I guess you could also be at the back of the queue of e-mails as well? :)

To get past the lesson, you might try a copy and paste. Copy the correct answer by holding your finger on the word until a menu to copy pops up. Select copy. When you get the question again, hold you finger on the blank space until the menu to paste comes up. Select paste. You could also use a computer and copy and paste.
