Query re Listening exercises

Hello - It seems a shame that the exercises requiring the student to listen to a sentence now provide the slow version as default, rather than the quicker, as was the case before. Listening to the easy version first isn't much of a challenge. Any chance this could be reversed?

Thanks

I am not sure if this is course specific. In the Spanish course for English speakers, the normal pace one is the default in the listening exercises. For the slower one, you need to click the tortoise icon.

Well, normal pace was the default on my computer too, but there's been a revamp recently - or at least that's my impression - and listening exercises begin automatically in tortoise mode. Grammar explanation labels also appear automatically, and when dismissed these change to vocab indication labels. Again, a little frustrating.
