Hi! I've just start an Esperanto course and right on the first lesson there are some sentences without audio. Why is it? Is the course still on process?

Probably money - unlike some courses which use mechanically generated speech the Esperanto course has a human being record all the sentences so not every single word and word combination is available. However there is definitely enough recorded for you to be able to pick up every possible sound combination and when this is taken into account with esperanto's completely regular and consistent pronunciation it is fine.

Not all the sentences have audio even from the beginning (as I recall.) In addition, some sentences are edited so the audio needs to be removed. In other cases, there were issues with the audio so it was removed.

If you're looking for additional examples of spoken Esperanto, I invite you to visit my YouTube channel.
