Suggestion - Listen in foreign language, type in english
I think it would be great to have an excersise where you listen to the foreign language (ie spanish french whatever) and then type it in the English translation
I like the idea. It's one of the more difficult things to do....translate just from the spoken language. Mimics having a conversation with a real person. Unfortunately, when you engage with a native speaker they don't carry around little whiteboards to write out what they're saying. At this point though, the computer generated voice leaves a lot to be desired and would probably make it more difficult if not impossible at times.
I like the idea--actually I do it already automatically sometimes, and then end up losing time in my timed practice because I have to go back and re-type it in the foreign language.
