In Italian level 2 lesson 7 (a review lesson), I came across the following sentence: "Dove posso comprare una cartina?" While I can guess what it means, we haven't yet had the word "posso" in any lesson. Did I somehow miss it?

Honestly, Andy, I don't understand the logic of that. Isn't the purpose of a review lesson to review what we've already been exposed to, and not what we haven't? The result, for me, is that I spent a frustrating 90 minutes going over previous lessons to find the word I erroneously thought I'd missed.

Dennis, I'm afraid I can't answer why it was done that way, but I'll be sure to pass your comment onto Sonia and our developers. I'm sorry for the frustration. Next time if you're in doubt, feel free to write us first before going through all of the lessons.

Hi, today while revising German 4 session 14, I was asked to download an update which I did.After the update, the dialouge and also all audio playbacks in the worksouts are not working. The German and English subtitles still work but no sound. I have tried other sessions and these appear to be working fine. I have restarted Fluenz without success. Is there something else I should be doing?

I am having a hard time knowing when Ihre means her or their. In one of the workouts you have: Ihre Taschen and Ihre Flüge. The first means her bags and the second means their flights. How do you distinguish the two?

I have the Fluenz for Spanish. I am using the installed program on my Mac, session 1 is downloaded and I have completed much of it. When I got to the part where I can use my microphone, the program is locking up a few moments after hitting record, then after several seconds a window pops up that says Fluenz is requesting to use the microphone, which I allow it to but the program just stays locked up. Closed it and re opened and it does the same thing. Rebooted and it does the same thing. In settings, security and privacy, for the microphone, it does show that Fluenz has permission to use my microphone, but it locks up and asks every time I try again on the program when I hit record. I am on a MacBook Pro with the macOS Mojave operating system. I have all updates installed for both my Mac and for Fluenz. After it locks up, all I can do is force close the program. PS, I am on the "Basic Conversations" section of session 1 when I try to use the microphone. I also tried in the "Advanced conversation" and it does the same thing as soon as the mic comes into play.

In the following sentence from level 4: Me gusta estar allí porque es un buen lugar donde podemos divertirnos. Why is divertimos not just the reflexive infinitive since podemos is already conjugated....we are able to have fun.... podemos divertirnos

I just finished the last lesson of level 5. Yay me! It's been a long journey with Sonia...150 lessons, but at the end of the journey I feel like a better member of the human race, with the ability to communicate with so many more fellow residents of planet earth.

Congrats, Glenn0! I'm curious to know what your plans are for building on what you've learned with Fluenz.

If by that you mean further study of Spanish?, I need to work on listening comprehension. So aside from taking every opportunity to talk with native speakers, I'm watching videos at SpanishListening.org and you tube videos of subtitled Spanish speakers. And watching movies Sonia recommended. Zama was a good movie I watched recently, both for improving my Spanish and it's a good movie!

My first suggestion is to refresh the web page when this happens. Sometimes the audio and photos may not load correctly in the browser and this will resolve the issue. If this doesn't work, in Chrome there is a setting where you can setup an exception to allow Javascript to be run on online.fluenz.com. All the audio except the video players and the Recording drills are handled by javascript. To set-up an exception in Chrome, find Settings in the top-right menu (click on the button of the 3 vertical dots). Click on "Show Advanced Settings", then under Privacy, find Content Settings, a window should pop-up. In the window, find "Javascript" and click on Manage exceptions. Here you will be able to enter online.fluenz.com and set to "allow". You can also try adding an exception in the "Plug-ins" section.Next, you can restart the browser for the changes to take effect.

Is the pronunciation of "ejja" for "ella" a universal thing or is it unique to a particular part of the world? That is, do people in Spain say "ejja" or is it a Mexican dialect?

In the flashcard There are six pastry shops and two very good bakeries there, the correct answer is il y a six pâtisseries et deux très bonnes boulangeries là-bas, but would il y a six pâtisseries et deux très bonnes boulangeries-là also be correct?

I'm not sure how this is taught, but ici = here, là = there, là-bas = over there so I would have thought that là should be the correct one.

Hi carriesciammas, very good question! Là and Là-bas can be confusing because the translation is not so clear-cut, and they can both mean "there" or "over there" depending on the situation. The main nuance is that "là" is used for things that are closer to the speaker, generally things he/she can point at, while "là-bas" is rather used for distant things, that are far away from the speaker. For example if you refer to another city or country you'll always use "là-bas"... Yet many times they are interchangeable and depend on the speaker's point of view. In this example, you're right, the answer could be both: il y a six pâtisseries et deux très bonnes boulangeries là-bas AND il y a six pâtisseries et deux très bonnes boulangeries là Since the phrase is out of context we don't know if the speaker is referring to distant or close by shops, so both answers should be accepted and we'll make sure that they're both available. ***Watch out though: in this example there is no hyphen before "là" or "là-bas", you ONLY use hyphens in the structure: this thing here (cette chose-ci), that thing there (cette chose-là). When there is no This or That before (or these or those), then no hyphen is used. I hope this clears things up a little! Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
