Hola Maria,


Thank you for posting.


The audio speed of the Vocabulary lists still can't be changed. However, you can add the entries to your [Word bank] and once there the entries are shown in both normal and 0.5x speed:

Hello,

The simple sentences in English grammar is quite easy to translate to Spanish but most of the words when I changed to Spanish ,,, the word changes to different spellings ..

like for example :

Leo—— lee—— leer


Do u have a learning type that I could be able to see the

Present tense

Past tense

Future tense


Another question ,

I m always sorrounded with Spanish people but I tried my best to understand each word they said but sometimes their pronounciation is different from what I am learning everyday ...


But still ,, thank you that I am learning each day..

Finding different ways to keep you motivated. You have to bring a bit of fun into learning - reading children’s books & listening to the school kids singing. I’m watching Netflix with English subtitles & then watch again with no subtitles. It’s very hard but it’s variation.

Me encanta escuchar las canciones y ver videos en español. Tambén leo libros y revistas.

Si lees o ves algo sobre un tema interesante aprendes mejor porque no estás aburrido.
