You can't quite hear the difference between "een" (=a) and "één" (=one). I was expecting it to be "één", as this lesson is about numbers, so this exercise is unnecessarily tricky...

Look at the English: Nothing like 'one' there either.

Why does duolingo not think that hound means the same thing as dog?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/David_Te

"A hound is a type of dog used by hunters to track or chase prey." -Wikipedia hound = dog dog ≠ hound

The dog must have a bad time.

My English keyboard does not produce the Dutch accents, but when I was listening to the audio of the a/one word, it sounded like "un" in the regular audio and "ain" in the slower version. If there is a conflict between the two which should I take to be authoritative?

You can usually get accents by pressing and holding the appropriate letter. Ie press and hold e and you have access to all the accented versions
