Wow ... is it just my imagination or is the woman who speaks in "write the phrase you hear" trying to establish a new speed speaking record mid way through level 5? I have to listen about 10 times to understand her (and often have to give up and hit "answer"). Did the developers of the program do this on purpose to challenge us? If so ... they succeeded. I live part time in Cozumel Mexico, and the native Spanish speakers never speak that fast when they know they are talking to a non native speaker.
