French - Use of hyphens, salle de bain and comparatives in lesson 5.4

Hi, I am coming across certain things that I find discrepant, or at least I don't really get. Please help me understand 1. Hyphens- especially in writing large numbers. Sometimes i see them used, sometimes not. Are there any rules? 2. Is it "Salle de bain", "salle de bains" or "salle-de-bain"? I...

Level 3

Just completed Module 17 and the first part of Module 18.  I must admit I'm having a hard time understanding why a level 3 module is devoted to review of pronouns (je, tu, il..) and why oui is one of the vocab words.

The module test is glitching. When I took the test yesterday (and again today), it is forcing me to reload the page after each section, or it wont move on to the next section. Also, it wont give me a score when I'm done the test. It will give each section's individual score but not the score for...

Numbers in spoken tests

The program often tells me I'm speaking incorrectly when I try to do numbers. For example, when I am meant to be saying 'Vingt-cinq euros', the programme often shows '25€' in red, rather than showing it in written form in green. If the programme is showing the correct numbers, that suggests...

What is the best way to study the Module 1 course? Does one first complete all the "interactive Audio Lessons" 1.1 to 1.5 and then move on to the "language & Culture Lessons" 1.6 to 1.15. Or should one study 1.1 and then 1.6?

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.
