Hi David,


You are right. The recording and the printed version of the sentence

don't match.

For your information, the spoken version is the correct one, in fact:

"Versuche dir mit der Schattenmethode CDs anzuhören, dann wiederhole was du gehört hast."

I will inform our team to correct this.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention.


As for the missing audio, I think we are aware of that and the

recording will be posted in the near future. I am sorry for the inconvenience.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

In the phrase: "Versuche mit der Schattenmethode CDs dir anzuhören, dann wiederhole was du gehört hast" the German speaker says a couple of different words. Listen closely and you'll hear she says it differently.

There is no audio for the phrase: Versuche mit einem Muttersprachler zu sprechen. There is only audio for the English. Is that intended?

Hi Cooki,


You are right. The English translation to this sentence

is not as clear as the German original.

What the sentence means is to not simply read something, but

to try and describe it with your own words afterwards.


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.

I think these are great tips, but I'm not sure what "Avoid reading directly, try to use an outline" means. How do you do that?
