I've been at the Duolingo thing for several weeks now, and I've begun to notice the lack of a feature that would, at least for me, be very helpful.
Lots of times I'll listen to the French voice say a sentence or phrase, and I'll get everything--except for one word. If I want to hear that word again, I have to play the entire sentence again. If you're doing that on slow mode, over and over, just so you can hear that one word, not only does it take ages (some of the sentences are v. long), but it's annoying.
So what if you could just highlight a single word in the written sentence, and get a playback of just that word? That you could play over and over until you got it?
I don't know about everyone else, but this would help me. Thanks! :)
I'm doing the French course, and, as has been observed by many others as well as myself, the recorded voice could be clearer. So I was wondering about having other voices, like maybe a male voice, or a child's voice, mixed in, so you'd start to get used to different sounds and cadences of French speech.
