Half speed dictation please Overall good but please, please provide the option for 1/2 speed dictation. As a learner it's practically impossible to understand the phrases being spoken on many of the exercises , they are simply too fast! Duolingo does this beautifully - full and 1/2 speed options. My only other gripe is the imbalance between the simplistic pictures and the much harder dialogue in the various lessons. Seems strange. Sort these issues out and I'll up my rating.
Excellent Getting the speech recognition to work while living in China proved impossible. Other than that, the big benefit is the lessons are not too time consuming. Makes it easy to find time every day to practice or learn.
Nice balance of objectives Writing,reading,comprehension, speaking are in good balance as objectives. The speaking seems a little weak though as it can't seem to hear my voice unless the ambient noise in near zero.
Excellent Useful content and the grammar is taught well. Handy to be able to correct mistakes and review each topic.
Excellent This language learning system is great, lots of listening and speaking practice and grammar points in accessible chunks. Plus the dialogues and scenarios make me laugh - the best aid to learning. The review manager keeps you up to speed as well.
Brilliant I can't praise this learning system enough. The quality of the online language system is first rate. It has helped enormously with my Spanish. I highly recommend this.
