Does Hungarian not have the speaking practice?

I haven't been able to say into my microphone a phrase/word yet. :/ I mean it's not the easiest language and it would be nice to be able to do speaking practice.

Nope. Speaking practice is not available for every language.

I noticed this too. Also that words and sentences are often introduced with no voiceover, so I end up learning them with no idea of how to pronounce them. I had to look up nő on wikipedia and I still have no idea how to pronounce fiú! It's really bugging me.

The voiceover doesn't cover the entire course because this course uses professional recordings instead of a computer voice. And that's awesome, at least in my opinion.

You can check forvo.com for the pronunciation of nearly every word in every language.

Forvo is great! I discovered it a few weeks ago, it does load a bit slowly though, and checking all the words on forvo will slow me down even more. It's taken me till level 8 in XP just to clear the first checkpoint in Hungarian! (I cleared the whole German tree by level 16 in 50 days by contrast.) I don't want to give up, but Hungarian is very hard compared to German and wandering so slowly and blindly is very demoralising. I really want to hear the words pronounced, as often as possible so it sticks properly. I assumed this was a temporary Beta thing. I hope it's a temporary Beta thing!
