Is there any audio?

there's currently no audio for this since it's still in beta.Though maybe in the future we may get one.

I lived on the Navajo Rez on an intern. The meaning of each word or phrase is based on the inflection sounds so it would really make sense to ask someone on the Rez to help with the sound portion. Window Rock's chapter house, their form of government, would be a good place to start.

I'm getting some Norman Bates vibes here: "Hello, motherrrrr..."

This one actually started that Camp Granada song running through my head for some reason. ...I'm not sure which one of us is more messed up, here.

So many of these questions have us type an english response and i think it would be better if there were more where we had to type in the language we're learning instead. Its just something thats bothering me

In my experiences on DL that becomes more predominant later in the course, when we've been exposed to it more
