I'm on the Portuguese to English lesson as a native English speaker (American English). There have been a few things that I've seen that are off, but currently the thing that irks me most is the usage of "rose" where "raised" is correct.

"He rose the flag." should be "He raised the flag."

There were a few other times in the lessons that had the same problem.

"present" seems to be mispronounced a lot by the computer. The verb and noun forms sound different and don't change with sentence placement. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/present that wiktionary link has both sounded out.
