not enough time to repeat in conversation Level 2. More time in level 1

When repeating sentences in Level 1 dialouge there was plenty of time. You don't have enough time to repeat in level 2 no matter how fast you speak.

Hi Carlo45, 

I am sorry to hear you are having problems recording in level 2; is the problem happening in the browser (in a desktop/laptop)? Or in the app (in a mobile device)? If on a browser, are you using the latest version of Chrome? If on the app, do you use Android or iOS? Do you get any error message? Any other detail you would like to provide will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Hi,

I have to agree with Carlos.  The only way to get a lot of the repeats in during a lesson is to start immediately after asked to repeat and talk very, very fast with no time to think.  Only solution I have found is to press the pause button.  Same on iPad and iPhone App and Chrome on desktop.

I tried it in both safari and chrome browser and you still do not have enough time to repeat the sentence. The time to repeat should be extended by a few seconds, a simple fix.  

Level 1 still works great in both browsers. Like Phil I use the pause button since there is not enough time to repeat without it.

Also when it's a large statement to repeat and goes to two lines only the second line appears at the end of the statment. It is helpful to have the full statement both lines
in front of you so you can read and repeat it.

Hi Carlo45 and PhilW6, 

Is this issue happening in the long audio clip? Where you can repeat after being told by the tutor but get no feedback? This is not from the Role Play or the Reinforcement? Thanks

It happens with the interactive audio lesson "Listen to the full lesson" Roberto or Maria wil say a line and then you're given time to repeat it. Even a native Italian speaker would not have enough time to repeat the line before Howard the host comes back on. It can be easily fixed by just extending the time to repeat by a few seconds. In Level 1 there was adequate time to repeat the phrase but not in Level 2.

I agree with this. The only way I can practise is to use the conversation tool.

As an example.  I was going through Lesson 11.1.  Sentence by Maria at around 13:30.
Maria has 13s to say the sentence.  The pause for the student to repeat is only 11s.  You have to start immediately, have no time to think and rush through to have any chance to repeat in the gap.  This seems to happen with all longer sentences in every lesson.

It started happening with mine at level 1, 6.2. iPad app.

In case this helps anyone: I recently bought a MacBook, and I had the same issues re being unable to record longer sentences per my comment above, when using Safari.  On the offchance, I downloaded Chrome today, and it works perfectly.  I hope this helps those with issues at level 2.  Chris

Same with me!!! This is so frustrating and inconducive to learning. I am trying to record myself repeating what the Italian speaker says in the “reinforcement” area, but I don't have enough time to get all the words out. I assume it's because the recorded speaker spoke very quickly, so the system expects a response in about the same time. Either way, this is like your teacher cutting you off before you even get a chance to say all of your answer. A bad way to learn

I see the same problem. After three months it should be clear that the problem is in the Rocket Italian software, not with the type of device that is running it. 

Someone in your software engineering dept.  should have confirmed the problem and fixed it by now!

They acknowledged the problem but haven't done anything in months and it seems like a really easy fix. Also not sure I like the new edition format - half the screen seems wasted.

It's clear that this issue is ongoing for enough people for it to be a live topic.  As I'm getting closer to starting level 2, it would be useful to know what Rocket have to say regarding fixing the issue.  As outlined above, the issue is a major problem for those who experience it.  Is there a way to poll members to quantify the scale of the issue?

Update: I'm well into level 2 now, without experiencing any technical issues.
