Only writing in the Esperanto course? Why? :/

I had listening exercises in the placement test, but none have come up since, I don't know why not.

Well, it IS still in beta. And, even after it graduates from that, there's still the possibility of it changing. I mean, the French tree got a ton of stuff a while ago. So I expect there to be listening portions at some point.

In an update on the incubation page, it says they have more of the tree to add, in a 2.0 version of the tree that will be made after graduation from Beta...

Are you sure the microphone and speaker aren't turned off?

Yeah, I'am sure , with all courses it is ok, but with esperanto it is not :/ , I can listen the sentence, but I don't have "listen to and write" or "read the sentence" :/ I would like to know why :/

Because unlike other courses, Esperanto and Irish don't have TTS speakers (Text-to-Speech), but have recordings of real people saying sentences in the languages. This also means that there are a limited amount of sentences that could be used for "listen and write" exercises.

I'm not sure why they couldn't include at least those sentences that they have recorded for those exercises, by a theory could be that they didn't want to accidentally have learners "memorize sentences" rather than learn and understand what and how each of the words in the sentence means and works. But that's just my theory.

Thank you for the insight. The Irish tree does actually have "listen and write" exercises, but perhaps their system for new languages has changed, or it takes longer to implement?

I'm willing to believe it's the latter. Remember, Esperanto is in beta, of course. I'm sure if Irish has it, then I'm sure Esperanto will too.
