I know its free program and im extremely grateful. But if you guys do feel up to it, it woukd be nice to have a easier audio to listen to. Listening to native speakers at normal length doesnt help much. Too much guess work. In english, in order to learn it when i was a child, to learn the proper pronounciation of "Today" for example; it had to be taught like this: TOOOOO-DAAAAYYY. And the letter D was stressed to make it clear that was the letter indeed being spoken. I imagine every language learns this exact way or similar.. would be highly beneficial if we could learn the same. If not, like i said, its a free program and its really good and i appreciate it still.
I tried using it and it just looked confusing to me. But either way, I'll find a way.
When your word pops up, hit the little arrow/triangle on the left and it will play the word. Someimes it will pull up multiples of the word and phrases that has that word in it.
Thanks Marcella! This looks awesome. They have an app too which looks pretty good so far. It has some serious ads (videos), but it's only $3 to get the ad-free.
Excellent point - speak to us who are learning at the toddler level the way you speak to your own toddlers!
I answered 'what would you do for this' and it was marked wrong. What would that have been, or is it also a possibility?
Yes, it is correct. Grammatically a sentence should not end in a preposition.
That is actually not true. (I know we were all taught this, but they were wrong).
Who and why are MUCH more common in this context. Why did you do this, Who did you do this for? I can only think of one way (scolding) that you'd use "what" : What is wrong with you; is there a reason you did this? OR What on earth possessed you to do this?
What for’ is used to ask the reason for something, similar to why. For example: ‘What do we use it for? Why do we use it?’ Both will answer the same thing, however, 'what for' is an informal usage and is not grammatically considered acceptable. Still many people do use it in normal usage.
