Faked speaking checks

I'm not convinced the app actually checks what you say when you speak the language into the microphone.

I made a few mistakes but it marked it as correct. I've since been speaking nonsense into it and it seems to arbitrarily mark as correct or incorrect.

Has anyone else seen this?

Yep. When it was just gibberish, it was marked correct. Even after saying the exact thing in the exact robovoice tone for some 15 minutes, it was marked incorrect. So I've turned off microphone in Settings forever...
