Brief Update - gu math / audio
Dè tha dol, a chàirdean?
A couple of wee updates here:
- We have updated sentences where "gu math" qualifies an adjective:
"Tha i gu math fuar." - It is really cold.
Previously we used "quite" which is too ambiguous in English so we have replaced it with "really in all translations. Thanks for the feedback.
- Updating Audio
The course contains about 7000 audio recordings. The vast majority are grand, but some are indistinct or too quiet. We have flagged these sentences to replace but unfortunately a bug is preventing us from doing so at this moment as it stops us recording. Duo staff are working away at it, so hopefully it wont be long! Audio cannot be deleted, only recorded over. I've even bought a fancy new mic (not that fancy).
Thanks for the patience and for all the help!
Re: Really/Quite. One should not replace the other. They don’t indicate the same meaning. It’s a matter of degree. Being «quite happy » falls short of being «really happy ». If my wife were to say she was »quite » happy to see me after a protracted absence, I would wonder why she wasn’t »really » happy to see me as she had said the last time. Hmm... has something changed? Words matter! D
