Swahilian Pronunciations?

Hello!

I have been waiting for Swahili to come out since it was announced in the Incubator and I was very excited when I found out that it had come out today (243rd learner)! However, to my dissapointment, I found out that it does not speak to you, which is frustrating because I wanted to know the pronunciations. Is this just because the language is very new? Or is it because of a glitch or that it does not unlock pronunciation until level 2 or a certain subject?

Thanks for the help!

It appears the machine does not track the numbers very well. So who knows what we were?
