Time for a double #RomanceComparison:
Book: Spanish & Italian - libro, French - livre, Portuguese - livro, Romanian - carte?!
Newspaper: Italian - giornale, French - journal, Portuguese - jornal, Romanian - ziar, Spanish - diario?!
If it's any consolation, Romanian also has "jurnal" for "ziar". Actually, I think it's a bit archaic and no one uses it that way anymore, but it's in the dictionary and one of our best known newspapers is called "Jurnalul Național".
Why canțt Duolingo have a feature to play the audio speech in slow.
I greatly appreciate the native speed at which sentences are spoken, however I am trying to get my production down and slow speech helps this greatly.
