Đang and ăn seem to be combined here...like one word, "Đa-ăn". I don't hear the ng.

I am Vietnamese but i do not hear "đang". It likes "đã".

makes me glad I don't have the sound! So much easier to just base it off the writing! Then you KNOW the "ng" is there. Don't you have the written part too?

I hear it. I must have listened to the word a thousand times. It's in their but very subtle.

I am curious why "cũng vậy" comes at the end of the sentence?? Where do I learn more about the word order?? Is it like English and their cat too?

The sentence seems to need to be rerecorded as there is no "ăn" that I can hear.

It is there. I "follow" the sentences I cannot "hear" so I can practice later. Up to this point, I have rewired my brain and trained my ear to hear all but one sentence that still vexes me.

"And their cat is also" is marked wrong. Geez.

"...and their cat is too." was accepted. Am I a whiz?

Must be. I just got it wrong again ('cat is also') because I forgot the only "correct" answer.
