Random words or sentences

Hi, I am new to this so hope this is meaningful. I would like to see some way of receiving audio in a random manner to eliminate the "journalizing" that happens when you know what is coming next. Some years ago I studied Morse Code and this is basically another language and we would receive random words or characters and it was very effective. The unknown factor that comes with the dialogue when speaking with a one-on-one is not there after playing the audio over several times. I found after a visit to China that most could understand all of my spoken words but I would get hung-up on one of their words and then miss those that followed. The end result was an exponential increase in learning.

Hi there,

thanks for that. Have you tried the Rocket Review track?
This track combines all the Rocket Reviews from all the lessons.
That way you can test yourself on the vocab and sentences that have been covered in each lesson.
You would still know what the topic of the lesson is, but it is more random than going through the whole lesson again.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for your comment on that. Yes I use that regularly and at times commence from a random part of the track. However I would like to see a random selection of totally unrelated words that would really test the instant recall part of the brain.
