Chinese Mandarin course request/feedback

Tēnā koutou,

I am learning the Mandarin Chinese programme and I think it lacks one vital feature that is integral to learning a language. I think it needs an aural transcription component, where audio plays a word and you have to write that word and spell it correctly, (other iterations can be choosing the correct character) and there are no written options, you have to use your ears.

The programme is currently helping me very well to read and write Chinese but my understanding of spoken Chinese is not really developing. I think the addition of an aural transcription component would make the programme more rounded and successful.

Other than that I am having a really good time. Thank you for this project as it is a remarkable opportunity.

Ngā mihi, kia kaha.

if you use the web version there are spoken sentences, and you can turn off the character pick cards by clicking use keyboard, you then have to type the character via pinyin or other keyboard input. see https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/29398281
