See the part that is being spoken in yellow
Pause the dialogue wherever you want
Repeat any sentence that you want to hear again
Whenever you open a
dialogue, the audio will start automatically and the part that is being spoken will be highlighted in yellow, so you can follow the dialogue easily. We recommend you listen to the dialogue as a whole at first. If you then want to hear a specific sentence again, or listen to one sentence at a time, just use the forward and backward buttons to navigate through the dialogue. Try it out now!
Learn at your own pace by listening to each sentence as often as you wish or pausing the dialogue at any time. This way you can develop an ear for the language you are learning and you can also practise your pronunciation by listening to the sentences repeatedly and saying them out loud.
As usual, after listening to the dialogue, you will have to
answer three short questions to show that you have understood the conversation. Test your listening comprehension now!
