Don't get speaking exercises at all. (PC)

Hello. During my lessons, I have never got any speaking exercises. Is this only for me or this feature isn't rolled out for everyone yet? Thanks.

We do not currently have speaking challenges for Italian and Portuguese - but these are in the works!

Thanks for your answer! I should've posted this in the 'Portuguese' section.

I have the same question. In the account settings I can select 'Microphone' and the Help page describes problem solving with speach input. However, I never saw any lessons with speech input or speech recognition, neither Web not Android App. Other Flash apps with microphone are working fine on my laptop.

Is this limited to specific languages or later lessons?
