Option to turn of listening exercises

I'm not always in a situation where I can listen to sentences being spoken while practicing. It'd be nice if I could toggle listening/speaking exercises ON/OFF.

One such situation might be sitting on the sofa while another person is watching TV.

You should be able to turn off the speakers and microphone in the settings menu.

Remember to turn them back on later; the learning results are often better when you can listen along.


Well I'll be damned, never noticed that option before! Thanks a lot! :)
