Your family- عائلتك The family- العائلة

This is confusing

فعلا خطأ بالبرنامج

as it stands, this should be "how is the family"

Yes, I think so too. I reported it. They teach us to translate literally, so that is what I do. Also "how is the family" is a natural phrase in english.

Yes, if you answer that takes it right.

this is definitely wrong. can i have my money back lol?

The problem here is that اَلْعائِلة is not YOUR FAMILY but just THE FAMILY.

كيف عائلتك يا ريم

Implied 'your family' is ok as in Spanish, they say "Disfrutar la semana" and it translates to 'Enjoy your weekend'. Although there is no tu included but still duo treats 'Enjoy the weekend' as wrong.

Semana is week also - not weekend (fin de semana)
