I often click on the slow version, not sure this specific time. Perhaps you can advise me on another matter 'una' I find whether it's 'un' or 'una' I always hear the voice speaking 'una'. Is this correct or when it is 'un' should it sound like 'un'. Thanks
"Un" should sound like "un," not "una," but I've noticed the same thing. The woman's voice for the Italian lessons is really not very good, especially compared to the voices for the other languages. I find that it is even worse for the slow versions, with unusual breathing and strange sounds that simply do not belong.
You can get a better idea of what a sentence should sound like by copying/pasting it into Google translate, then clicking on the speaker icon. It's still a mechanical voice, but it's smoother and more accurate, and doesn't have the strange breathing issues that DuoLingo's Italian voice has.
Thanks pmm123, much appreciated, will try Google translate. I do think this is a great site for learning a language in spite of the idiosyncrasies.
I've been using Google translate since you mentioned it sometime ago. really appreciated. Any suggestions on how to find someone to practice speaking?
The recording at the regular speed uses "la" but the turtle recording uses "una"
