Starting the Lesson
You will be asked to record yourself saying 3 or 6 phrases in the language you selected (depending on your selected Lesson settings).
Each phrase translation is divided into three parts:
Romanization (Pink) - How the phrase or word is pronounced.
Translation (Blue) - How the phrase or word is written.
Comments (Blockquote) - A comment or usually the literal translation of the phrase.
Under the phrase translation you'll see these buttons:
Add To Favorites (Star) - Lets you save a phrase to your favorite list.
Play (Triangle) - Plays the literal recording of the phrase.
Slow Play (Two Triangles) - Plays a slower version of the phrase.
Once you are familiar with the phrase, hold the record button and record yourself saying the phrase, then let the button go to stop recording.
Press the preview button (speaker) to review your recording. If you're happy with your recording, press "Thumbs Up" to send your recording, or press "Thumbs Down" to cancel and redo your recording.
Press the left arrow to go to the next phrase for the session and record it.
When you're done with all the phrases for the day, check back again tomorrow for the next set of phrases. In the meantime, feel free to practice some more!
If your learning schedule is set to 2x3 or 2x6, you can start the next session after 1-4 hours.
