It doesn't always recognise speech.

Is anyone else having this problem? I am learning Norwegian (since I moved here to live with my partner) and whenever the "teacher" asks me to say a phrase and I repeat it it doesn't seem to pick up my voice even if I say it correctly three times.

I've had this happen in my German course. It used to work pretty well a long time ago, so I'm not sure what changed.

I simply disabled the vocal exercises in my settings and moved on. I understand that is not a solution, but Duolingo is limited anyway in what it teaches, so that worked for me.


it happens to me all the time


I'm finding it really frustrating as lessons take longer as a result but at the same time I am glad it isn't just happening to me.
