Suggestion: Provide option to always hear sentence spoken

I think it would be a nice addition if you could hear the correct sentence (spoken in the foreign language) on the "English to ____" translation sentences, and on the multiple choice/fill in the blank sentences.

I'm learning French, and there are so many silent letters that even when I know how to write a word, I'll frequently forget how to pronounce it. The way it is now, about half the time I have to copy paste sentences into google translate to hear how they sound.

If you click on discussion, you can hear the sentence spoken in the foreign language (even the multiple choice) - I use this a lot.

I would love it if DL had every sentence spoken.

Yes, I agree with you. Like you I think that in French it's difficult to hear/understand when a letter is silent or not, but this could help in other languages too.

I agree. Even with Spanish. I'd like to hear every sentence spoken on the screen (in the language I'm learning.)

You are right. I am learning French, too, and it would be really helpful for me.
