For a learner of a new language I find the senctences I am listening to too long. Would it not be a good idea to offer part of the sentence first (main clause, subclause) plus the complete sentence later - at least as an option ?

hi mikeydee,

i'd agree, however, the problem i see, is that the automated voice for long sentences sounds a bit unnatural so it's not like a native speaker speaking a sentence.

@severin Agreed, although I have sensed an improvement in the speaker recently.
