Hello! The same thing happened to me. You can do two things... 1. Update the Duo app. 2. Look very carefully in the list. For me the Arabic language course was in a different spot than the browser. It also hides very well seeing as it is green and white, which matches the Duo color scheme.
Rawaad (the second letter is not a vowel)
The pronunciation is not entirely accurate though: It says Rawwaad (it stresses the second letter) The second letter can only be stressed with a shadda or an emphatic diactric above it, which in this case, is absent in this word.
This changes meaning as well.
r = ر
z = ز
It's a little confusing in this case because the "ر" in this word has a fatḥah (that little stroke) above it, which looks similar to the dot on top of the "ز", but it's not the same thing. The fatḥah is just there to indicate that the consonant should be followed by an "a" vowel sound – it doesn't affect the consonant sound.
r = ر
ra = رَ
z = ز
za = زَ
Hope that helps :)
yes, you can,
and if you say رَوَد it will be read as 'rawad'
since it is written رَواد it is read as 'rawaad'
But: this is a name (a proper noun of sorts) so it is a bit more confusing.
The correct way to write Rawwaad (the actual pronunciation you hear in the audio file) is رَوّاد (with a diacritic over the و called a 'shadda' that emphasizes the consonant under it - kinda doubles it)
