Pronunciation Dutch lessons

I noticed in some of the Dutch lesson they do no pronounce some of the words in the sentence they are presenting. Curious; Anyone else get tripped up with that aspect of leaning the Dutch language?

Cheers! Lucien

Hopefully this will be fixed with the unveiling of the new Dutch tree that is scheduled to happen soon. Start watching some Dutch TV to become even more familiar with how the stuff sounds, though. It makes it way easier. =)

Thank you Alex, for the reply.

yes, i see where that could help, I speak a little Dutch. what I was referring to is the elimination of words in the spoken part of the lesson that actually show up in the written portion, so when you write what you hear and what is written isn't the same, which makes the written answer you write wrong everytime.

So my advise; listen, then read, before you do the translations.

Thanks again, Lucien

ps; can you tell em why the efficiency rating goes down, I get 5/5 and then it goes to 4/5, do you know why?

An algorithm is used to decay the strength of the skills. It lets you know when you need to practice skills again.

Also, those two points were not related in my response. I knew to what you were referring; hopefully that will be fixed. But aside from that, doing more listening than just what is on Duolingo is going to be beneficial. That's all I was saying. =) Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.
