Premium Plus: Level 2 . "Play it" logic

jackcohenmail

I  recently started the work  with the second part of RocketSpanish.
(Premium Plus: Level 2)
 

Even from the start, Lesson 9.1,  I had an unpleasant surprise with the test 5,  “Play it”.
For most of this dialog , even if  my reply contains some wrong words  and/or is  badly pronounced in Spanish , it is accepted as correct, and the dialog continues !
This is more blatant for the lesson 9.2, where a complete answer is even not necessary  , one or two words, be these correct or not,  are enough for the dialog sequence to continue unperturbed !
 
In the first part, Premium: level1, when the reply is not accepted by the program,  the dialog stops. After the necessary corrections, the dialog restarts from where it was stopped.
 
The above kind of dialog flow is logical and, makes  “Play it” ,   a good learning tool !
So, why this doesn’t happen in the part 2 ? 

Thanks,

Hi Jack, 

Thank you for your feedback. In the past, as you mentioned, it was not possible to continue with the audio conversation if a word or phrase was not picked up by the voice recognition system. This was then updated in case a word could be wrongly marked by the voice recognition and would slow or stop the fluency of the conversation; that is why now you continue with the conversation until the end and then you can mark yourself accordingly, and then practice the conversation again if necessary. 

Kind Regards!

Thanks  for your quick reply..
Even if I don't agree with this new Rocket-Spanish  point of view, it has its rationalization..

But , I'm afraid, you ignored the other, second claim of me:
"This is more blatant for the lesson 9.2, where a complete answer is even not necessary  , one or two words, be these correct or not,  are enough for the dialog sequence to continue unperturbed !"

This describe the "new" comportment of the dialog program, in which I hardly succeed in opening  my mouth, if at all,  before the dialog jumps to its next step in sequence !
(If this  has to be considered an improvement,too, then we could reach the absurd situation,  where the student presence becomes unnecessary   , the dialog getting a life of itself !)

No, Sir, it will be difficult to convince me that "All is for the   best in  the best of the  possible worlds"

Simply , I would say that somebody at Rocket-Spanish have to find and fix the "bug" , in the "Play it" dialog program !

Thanks for your effort,

Hi Jack, 

The test definitely needs to hear something in order to continue with the dialog, the speed should be the same as the one in the conversation; if this is not happening to you, we can review it a bit further with our IT Team; please send us a screenshot if possible from what you see on the test to the support@rocketlanguages.com

Kind Regards!
