This is the most adorable thing I've heard in years. It melted me! I've gotta meet this girl. Have her count to 10 for me at bedtime

So did mine until I discovered that it'll accept 1 2 3 ... and so on.

I love her pronunciation so much :)

The layout of this - selecting the right words by clicking on them - is wrong. I can't click on 'naoi' if I have already chosen the words that go before it.

I am having the same problem. The answer is so long that when I get towards the end, it covers up the possible word choices at the bottom and I am unable to select them. It appears to be physically impossible to enter the correct answer!

They should really mix these numbers up now and then. Otherwise its' just a typing accuracy exercise.

In a choice of three answers previous lesson this was accepted as a one, a two etc it was considered correct and now It was marked wrong in my answeR?

I would consider "a one, a two, a three etc" as a very misleading "correct" answer, as it implies that the "a" in the Irish sentence is some optional extra. It's not, and the "a" in "a haon, a dó, a trí" is not the same "a"/"ah" in "ah one, ah two, ah three".

In other areas of the course "haon, do, tri" etc is accepted. I remember being mildly offended by that.

In my answer, the word one was missing. I could not choose it, even though I know it was needed.

I am having the same problem, it is very frustrating.

I figured it out. you can select the keyboard to manually type the answer instead of using the word bank.

Each time i do this one of the numbers is missing so i can never get a correct answer. Is anyone else getting same issue?
