Native Speaker - Tested out of a bunch of courses - but having some difficulty.

I am an American born native speaker - but I did not learn how to read and write until college. I tested out of a bulk of the courses - but unfortunately - no matter what course i choose - I get a bunch of what sound does this make questions - that I keep getting wrong because my dialect's pronunciation is slightly different from whatever you are teaching - which feels like a mix of dialects. Also since i didn't take the earlier lessons - I am not sure what sounds duolingo considers the s and S or DH vs dh - so I get those all wrong. Also the answers don't have sound - so sound does not help either. Is this supposed to happen?
