WE REALLY NEED A PORTUGUESE AUDIO RECORDING PORTION IN OUR LESSONS!
All other languages have this (except probably Italian). We need this feature asap. Does anyone have any news / a date for this? Obrigado!
Poderíamos fazer grupos de estudos de diferentes idiomas ( nativos ) ,Eu por exemplo sou Brasileiro e estou precisando praticar inglês com alguém com fluência na linguá . Praticar por skype mesmo.
I agree. Pronunciation is tough in Portuguese and it would be nice to see how well we are doing. Also, Italian does have the microphone option.
The only thing I like the recording exercises is so that I get and extra easy point, assuming the mic is working well on that day. But truthfully i don't think it can do a good job truly checking how your accent is, it's not a good judgment on your pronunciation. Why not just repeat everything the audio says on every sentence, that should give you a good enough practice to communicate when you start your first conversation with a live native speaker, and they can help you improve your accent. Either way, that is what will happen, robot recordings are still not very good and not having it in the Portuguese course is no lose in my opinion.
It would be tough though don't you think? I speak Portuguese from Portugal and I have a hard time, depending on where the person is from, understanding people from Brazil.
