Certainly not a big deal, but by this relatively late stage in the in the program, shouldn't "dots" be referred to by the correct term "umlaut."

The article is interesting but doe not give a reason for calling Umlauts dots. Most German grammars label the "umlaut" as an "umlaut" .

Thanks for the feedback, we'll take this into account for our next upgrades.

When repeating back the conversation by typing it in, the Fluenz does not accept "Zimmer sechsundzwanzig," but instead expects "Zimmer 26." This was annoying because when I make a mistake, I try very hard to figure it out myself, and only use the "Answer" button as a last resort. Perhaps both answers should be accepted.

Is there is a way to type a capital U with an umlaut within the program? This first came up in level 3 German, lesson 10 with the new noun "Uebung" and its plural "Uebungen". In Commons posts is it also OK to use "ue" for "u-umlaut" as I did here? If there is a way to type in umlauted characters here in the Commons, I haven't found that either.

I don't know about the commons but in the program I found that if I hit the Caps Lock and then the next letter in the word it autocorrects the first letter to have a capital with the umlaut

For lower case ü, type the ] key (two keys right of the letter p). To type a capital Ü just hold down the shift key, then type ]. On the screen it will look like } but when you keep typing the Ü will show up. Hope that makes sense. Same goes for the ö, but that key is [ (one key right of p). Now, in general when typing these letters, such as here in the commons, online, etc. on Apple, hold down the Option key and type u. The umlaut will appear. Then type the letter you wish to umlaut. I think this works with Microsoft products as well.
