2.7 text error

夫婦茶碗

Under the section, "Asking for permission" in module 2.7 , there seems to be a small text error. The て-form of あける is introduced first in writing:
  まど  を  あける  →  まど  を あけて も いい です か? 
  mado o akeru →Mado o akete mo ii desu ka?
  to open a window →May I open the window?

And then followed by the tutor audio, 「まど を あけて も いい です か?」

However, the very next table has the same written information:
  まど を あける  → まど を あけて も いい です か?
  mado o akeru →Mado o akete mo ii desu ka?
  to open a window →May I open the window?

But then the tutor audio (and writing sample) says, 「まど を しめて も いい です か?」(May I close the window?)

One more? In module 1.9 in the section about forming questions with verbs that use します (before the Numbers 1-12 and Months section), the following is written (third question):

    In kana: どれ ぐらい りょこう して います か?
    Kana & kanji: どれくらい旅行していますか?

The recording says「ぐらい」.

There are text mistakes riddled through the course. If you see them there is a feedback and report button, that seems to work for me. If no changes then forums get the moderators attention.

Think of it this way. If you can pick up mistakes then it means you have learned something and your knowledge is getting stronger.

Come new year I am going to start from scratch again. All modules and all levels with each level 1 morning, level 2 mid day and level 3 night being focused on. I will be sure to report any mistakes found as well.

I have seen the "send feedback" button when doing the "Rocket Reinforcement!" sections, but I do not see such a button for the actual lessons. Am I missing it?

no that is the area I was referring to. If you are seeing mistakes elsewhere then this or email is best way to report. I see they correct things regularly when mistakes are found.

It's my hope that Crystal sees this and fixes it, but at worst if someone is confused and does a search this thread should pop up.

Update: Please ignore this post, I was wrong. (/ε\*)

In Module 3.6, under the "~ませんか?: Inviting someone to do something" section, it says:

When you want to invite someone to do something with you, you can use the あせんか (masen ka) ending. Literally it means "won't you?" but it means more like "would you like to" or "why don't we".
