Speaking exercises?

I haven't come across any speaking exercises yet. Is that a beta thing? :/

Do you have "Microphone" enabled in settings?

edit: I just went through a lesson with "Microphone" enabled, and I didn't get any speaking exercises.

Microphone is enabled... I'm on the third lesson now and I haven't come across any speaking exercises. It's hasn't been just one lesson.

I guess we have to wait for someone who knows if speaking exercises are included in the Dutch for English course. If they're not then I'm assuming it's just something that's not in the beta yet.

Yea, I guess. Thanks

Odd, I had a microphone question in the first lesson. I had to then disable it in the settings because I don't have a mic (note to self: get one), but they seem to exist within the course.

Weird indeed :/

I would suspect that the Duolingo team have to do some under-the-bonnet/hood stuff to get the voice recognition to work for Dutch. So I'd imagine we'll have speaking exercises eventually, just not yet.

Okay. Yea, I guess. Thanks

Same here, and I'm halfway through the tree. I think they're probably still in progress.

Okay. Yea. Maybe after it's out of Beta? :/ Thanks :)

Is this still a beta thing? I still can't see anywhere to add this function.
