sounds the same as "Le canard mange le pain." but for duolingo it's different...

"Le" and "Les" are heard a little differently. Le is more like a "leu" while Les is more like "lay"

why is it not "du pain"?

I think both would be understood, "some bread" vs "the bread" but the example just uses le instead.
