Has DL ever considered adding a button which would allow the learner to hide the learning language questions. For quite some time I have been trying to learn languages from software and books so my brain tends to be drawn to the text. I would like to force myself to really work with the audio only and not allow myself to cheat by looking at the sentence. I believe that this could really help learners prepare for real conversations. When I try to simply look away I always mess up answers. Does anyone else think this might be a good feature?

That would be nice, I keep my eyes on they keyboard if I don't want to see the text, it works okay

    I think that's a great idea, especially if you could un-hide the sentence to make sure you understood correctly before getting scored. It might be discouraging to run out of hearts too quickly. I think French is very tricky to understand for beginners because of the word endings not being pronounced unless the next word begins with a vowel.

    I did the complete oposite, I hide the audio questions, I think it's easier to lear how to read first and then how to talk
