Confused in new Arabic Course
In the Alphabet 2 lesson I'm confused as to what the letters are supposed to sound like. The audio sounds like a TH sound to me but the options are all writing that sound as DH, which as a native English speaker I'm rather uncertain how that would even sound.
I'm not sure if its the audio being incorrect or the written English equivalent is incorrect, or if I'm way off base and just can't hear it right?
Anyone else having this issue?
In English, there are actually two different pronunciations of the letter comination "th". For example, "this" has a different initial sound than "thin". To reflect this, the sound in "this" is transcribed as "dh" ( ذ), the sound in "thin" as "th" (ث) (at least the second one is what I'm used to, I haven't reached that point in the duolingo Arabic course yet).
