Glitch in the Know It test.

I was doing the Know It test when it suddenly glitched. The test would not let me even try to say the sentence. It would automatically give the answer, but it would say it over and over without a pause. It would not even stop when I tried to record myself. When the test was done, it still kept...

Is there anyway we can type accent?

Is there anyway we can type accent when creating a new word in the MegaFrench software? I think the feature is great, but sometimes it's annoying not being able to type the accent, and as you know, French has a lot of accents on the words. Thanks

rocket record very unreliable

Been using RF level 1 for a couple of weeks trying to refresh my schoolboy french. The record function is a good idea as you can hear what you're saying and compare with the tutors if you don't instantly get a 100% score, but it only works occasionally. I'm using Chrome (latest version) on...

Badges??

Just a general question: What happened to the display of badges? Have they been replaced with that Benchmark thing, which does not appeal to me at first glance. I like seeing where I am on the badges. It is motivating. Please re-institute them under the Leaderboard, as before. Thanks.

Extremely frustrating; I do the testing after the doing a chapter; say 1.5 Booking a Room, and the Know It and Say It, etc results DO NOT SAVE.

What is the point of spending time working so hard to finish the entire test section when it then shows your results as 0% done? This has happened multiple times on almost every chapter. I am doing them on the iOS app. Severely impacting my motivation to continue. This is refund level frustration.
