I have no idea where to put that, but I just found a mistake in the Irish course. In "The World" I had a sentence that did not at all match the audio. It was one of the puzzle questions and you could solve it no problem, but the audio was an entirely different sentence.

The written sentence was approximately: "Oltar beoir sa phriomhchathair na Polainne" And the spoken sentence (As far as I could make it out): "Is Ollainnis an teanga i san Ollainn"

This should probably be fixed. Can anyone tell me, where to direct that? Other than that, by the way, I love that course.

Thanks everybody!

    Maidin mhaith, this problem's been around for some time - a few of the units are pretty badly affected. My understanding is that all issues relating to it will be rectified as soon the Irish 2.0 tree is released with the new audio (which will be very soon).

    In the meantime, when you come across a mismatch between the audio and the text in translating a sentence, I'd advise that you follow the text and just ignore the audio. Reporting them won't make a difference at this point, as this tree will soon be obsolete, so audio errors aren't being corrected.

    You'll find two options below each sentence: report a problem or discuss sentence.

    Only in the web version, I'm always on the app, there is no button there.
