Please could someone explain how the courses that use two alphabets are supposed to work? Am I really meant to change my keyboard set up between questions every time throughout a lesson??! Because one moment I'm meant to be translating English to Russian and the next taking dictation in English, and the long and the short of it is, it doesn't work. Between switching keyboard layouts and trying to find your way around an unfamiliar layout, I would be interested to know how long it takes the average user to complete one of these lessons and whether others, like me, end up entering the wrong answer because somewhere in the process we forgot what we were meant to be typing!
Apple: keep the letter pressed for a few seconds and a menu will pop up with éëê áäâ etc. Windows: set your your keyboard settings to US International, then some keys like " and ' will not appear directly (only when you type a space after them, or a letter that doesn't have a shortcut), this will enable 2 key shortcuts, e.g.
typing " followed by e will give you ë ' e -> é " a -> ä and others, see the full list here:
