Suggestion for the Duolingo team: vocab list with sound

Hej! I'm a complete beginner to Danish (just finished Basics 1), and am trying to get to grips with the vagaries of its pronunciation... I really like how, during the lesson, you can hover your mouse over a word and hear how it's pronounced, so I'm wondering if there's any reference list of words which you can hear (I'm writing out a vocab list for myself, but find it really hard to remember how to pronounce the words.) If not, it would be a really helpful feature of Duolingo. Tak!

Unfortunately, Danish is one of the courses without a vocabulary list. The original languages (Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, French and I think at least some of the courses teaching English, but I'm not 100% sure) have a tab called "Words" which might be what you're looking for, although I don't think they have sounds, but none of the newer courses that have been made since the incubator. This is up to the Duolingo development team to add and unfortunately not in the control of the Danish team. (I don't know when or if Danish will get this tab)

If you have the vocabulary list you're making, you can try using forvo. You can download the recordings as MP3s by cliking on the downward pointing arrow between the heart and the "share" buttons under the clip. If a word isn't there, you can also request it and hopefully it will be seen and someone will do it.

Thanks for your reply! Forvo looks extremely useful. Do you know if there's a way I can pass on my suggestion to the Duolingo development team?
