Is there a way to take a Module Test without the speaking portion. My microphone does not seem to work very well. Thanks!

Ruta: Do you mean in the Hear it/Say it, Write it, Know it, or in the Play it sections?

I am pretty sure you can take the first three without recording the things you are supposed to say. You can just repeat the phrases Mauricio says without recording them.I think you get points when you rate yourself with the colored buttons. I think the important thing is to say the phrases in Spanish to accustom your mind and mouth to the act of speaking Spanish. Whether it is recorded or not is of little significance.

I don't really use the Play it section, so I don't know how that works.

Rocket Spanish (and other languages as well) do not evaluate you based on what you say.  You evaluate yourself.  Well, the Write It tests will grade your writing but you can still override the rating.  You can complete and pass the tests without recording anything and that includes "Play It".

I never use the microphone to record as it slows me down, this goes for all the lesson tests that involve speaking (include Play It when you also just rate yourself). Even the Write It tests I don't type in as I write it on paper in a big notepad I had to keep it all together. Of course come the module test I have to write it into the box for it to count but in the module test you just rate all the hearing tests in the same way. I would say speaking out loud is essential to learning and testing yourself, whether you record it or not is insignificant

Jo: te acuerdo. Hablando, escuchando, escribiendo, y leyendo son todo importante para aprender una idioma.

Agreed. I've never used the RS record functionality.

I did for a while just to hear my pronunciation. When my spanish speaking friends verify that I sound okay, I also stopped using them.

I will add though that it's interesting to hear yourself in the context of a conversation in the "Play It!" section.

In the Premium, I did all of the Play it section. In the Premium Plus especially at the end I just did the first two. I found you almost have to memorize all the conversations in order to do it. I just decided, it would a future activity for me.
