More audio sorely required in Hebrew.

In most of the other language courses on here, it's possible to hover the cursor over a new word to see how it sounds. That feature's omitted from the Hebrew course and I feel that it would make progress a lot easier.

Anyone agree? Anyone know how I can request the admin to add this feature to the Hebrew course?

The 'Duolingo Hebrew' course on Memrise has all the vocab, unit by unit, for the entire Hebrew course, with audio for every word. I do it alongside the duolingo course and it is very helpful.

Thanks for pointing that out, Miss Spells!

I've had a lot of exposure to Hebrew in my life so I know the alef-bet, but it just occured to me that this could really help people who don't know it very well

I absolutely agree. Especially with Hebrew where pronunciation is very tricky. It's not helpful when we need to switch to Memrise all the time.

It has more audio than the first time I tried it (or at least it seems to) but I agree it needs more. I'm hoping the more right-to-left languages they get onto DuoLingo the more sophisticated their programming will become and it'll be possible to give other right-to-left languages similar benefits that the Romance family enjoys (though their best courses are Spanish and Portuguese, from what I understand.)

Yes, I totally agree. It also needs more audio on the complete sentences.

and please not so quick

I'm doing this course since it was released, I'm waiting until now for a solution about this problem. It's a shame that DL has no fixed it yet.

Lack of complete audio coupled with few short vowel markings makes learning initial vocabulary unnecessarily difficult.

I agree!!!

I would love that too!

I just tried to start Hebrew but there seems to be no audio, unlike all the other languages I have been studying here. Very strange, not awesome at all. some folks are saying if I stick with it there will be audio in some instances...?? It would have been helpful it the Hebrew course would teach the letters in the thorough way the Hindi course does.
