Voice recognition failing

I am having a lot of trouble when doing French speaking exercises. It does not happen with German or Spanish, only French, and it is getting ridiculous. I understand that my pronunciation may be off, but not much. This is absurd, really.

Is there a way to fix this? I know I can turn the mic off, but I really want to practice speaking. But really practice, I am not very happy with repeating a sentence 50 times and getting these responses all the time.

Boy you said it! I'm convinced that the French speech recognition is demonically possessed!

I am really struggling as well. Sometimes it accepts the most difficult sentences but then some very simple three word sentences fail. Most annoying is that when I try again it sometimes doesn't let me finish at all but fails after two seconds or so.
