letter accents on ipad app

Can anyone advise how to add accent marks in the ipad app? It says to hold the letter down but when I type the correct letter with the accent it stops the lesson as incomplete and I lose a heart every time. Frustrating!

Oh I know! That also happens to me no matter what I try.


Hmmm... it's worked well for me, with both the glass keyboard and with an external keyboard using bluetooth – but I only type in German and English. I assume you are pressing the key and then sliding your fingertip to the appropriate accent.


I have tried sliding over to the correct accent letter but it disconnects me every time. Thanks to all for commenting. Ciao
