I would be willing to speak sentences in my native language for use in listening exercises.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd be up to giving a few moments of my time to make duolingo a better learning experience for others. I believe this would make the listening exercises better, especially for the universally despised italian voice. Even if everyone contributed only a handful of recorded sentences, learners would be exposed to native speakers.

I have found the French voice pretty comprehensible at most times. There is a problem with the phonetics itself of these languages (and of Catalan): It takes a long time to get used to them. But the French voice definitely does have strange bugs. In one case it definitely said "une" instead of "un". I have no idea how that can even happen unless the voice must be hand-coded for every sentence.
