Hi Susan,



In the Vocabulary section you can choose to listen to the audio in slow speed.


Also, you can adjust the lesson's audio speed by clicking on the dark gray ‘1x’ button next to the volume control icon on the lower grey menu in which you’ll see the audio playing. You can slow it down by choosing either “0.75x” or “0.5x”. It can be helpful for understanding a bit more of the pronunciation ;)


We hope this helps!


Feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

The words of different type of house is easy to pronounce. But the example pronunciations would be good if slower. Can't really catch up with the speed. Any way cảm ơn bạn.
