This is so much more elegant than English and Spanish ... you have words for uncles and aunts on either side of the family!

Why is it 'pappa'? In German it's 'Vater', in English 'father' and the uncle is even the 'far-bror'. Pappa sounds like 'dad' or 'pops' etc. to me (child language)

It looks like 'pappa' is indeed 'dad', and 'far' is 'father', but Duolingo usually accepts both words despite the difference.
