Hi -- in German from English, I often get near the end of a lesson, and the same audio test keeps coming, even though I say it correctly it's not accepted, and it means I can't get to the end of the lesson -- I have to give up in despair and frustration. I think the audio checker needs some fine tuning. If only there was more variety available towards the end of the lesson, and the same phrase didn't keep repeating, it would be possible to complete it.

I recommend turning off the speakers and mic. It will keep you from getting those exercises. You can achieve the same (more) benefit just by saying everything out loud without being prompted and listen to radio or watch tv in the language you're learning. :)

Edit: You can change your settings by hovering over your username in the blue bar at the top of the screen. A menu will drop down. Click "settings". Once you change your settings, be sure to click the green "Save" button. :)

thank you, I will try that -- I tried changing settings when almost at the end of the lesson, but it had no effect -- I'll try changing settings before I start a lesson :-)
