I have found that when the audio does not match the text, you have to answer the text part. Reporting the error on 25-May-2015.

Apparently they're implementing a complete new set of audio tracks in the coming weeks (YAY!!) so it'll be fixed then

What's the difference between thuas and suas again?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fabitorti

thuas : up (above) as a position without movement suas : upward (as a direction from speaker)

What is she actually saying here? Audio doesn't match.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smrch

She's saying "Tháinig siad anuas de" (they came down off it).

Thanks -- I thought I put that and it was marked wrong, but I'll try it again.

the listening exercise is 100% undoable, so don't worry about it. the audio is incorrect and it's looking for an answer you have no way of guessing since the audio is incorrect and there is no text.

Well it's impossible to answer correctly to a listening exercise (without text), when the audio is wrong. In text translation exercises, okay, wrong audio is confusing, but you have the right text to answer, but in listening comprehension without any text it's just stupid guessing. IMO the wrong audios should at least be excluded from listening comprehension exercises immediately, if not corrected.

The course creators don’t have that option on a permanent basis; the audio corrections will need to be done during the “Tree 2.0” deployment window, when Duolingo HQ allows course creators to have greater leeway than usual.

    But why not change the text to suit the audio? That way we would have some chance of getting it right.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scilling

    Perhaps there’s already an exercise with text that matches the current audio?
