Level of mastery in "Know It" portion of Rocket Review before moving on to the next lesson.

As I move through the language and culture lessons the phrases I am required to translate in the Rocket Review "Know It" module get longer and longer.  Typical example: "Diciamo che vorrei essere a Napoli prima delle 9, se possibile." 

Am I expected to memorize all of these and parrot them back in the "Know It" section of Rocket Review before I move on to the next lesson?  This seems like a colossal waste of time because I have to keep reviewing more and more of these lengthy difficult phrases to remember them and I probably will never use them again.  And, doing this just slows down my progress.

Or am I just expected to pronounce them correctly while reading the Italian?

Hi camounteer,

You don't need to memorize all the sentences to go forward with the lesson. You can reveal the Italian translation before recording, or you can even skip recording altogether and try to translate the sentences in your head, and then rate them according to their difficulty.

Hope this helps!
