Hi, enjoyed the lesson but had a problem with write the words. The first word seemed to be

أعطي

but the program says it is incorrect. What is the right word?

The verb أعط is an order, and in order verbs the vowels at the end are dropped. So you should write it without the ي at the end. In fact, if you look at the first part of the exercise (Match the words), you can see how it is written, and once you match it with the meaning you'll be able to hear it and hear the last letter with short vowel (7araka) rather than normal vowel.

Hope it is clear now.
