Бабушке шестдесять лет
Impossible to move on from this in the numbers section. Totally stuck. Please fix this! My pronunciation isn't that bad :)
I can pronounce it perfectly. It means "Grandmother is sixty" which happens to be my age. The irony of it! But the voice recognition seems to be stuck on this particular string and I cannot move on inside this section.
I disabled the microphone months ago and don't think I am losing anything. BTW, it is шестьдесят, not шестдесять (one of the mistakes even native speakers of russian make all the time)
Спасибо больше. Thanks for reminding about the spelling, not an easy one as it all sounds the same really :) хопоших выходных. Jean-Luc
Quite a number of native speakers pronounce is шиисят or шисят in rapid speech. The standard pronunciation is the same as if the word would be "шездесят"
I have the opposite issue. Years ago, when I tried duolingo, I remember doing voice exercises with the microphone. When I took up the Russian course two month ago, I found no voice exercises at all. I thought perhaps this was a failed experiment and it was taken out, or perhaps the Russian course just doesn't support it, like the missing vocabulary review tab. But now your message from a week ago suggests that my voice/microphone might just have been turned off. I looked at my profile just now and everything is turned on including my microphone. How do I turn on (and off) the voice lessons?
