When in doubt, do you usually ask people to immediately repeat what they have just said, or first try to grasp the meaning from the situation?

Hi David Doyle,

thanks for leaving a comment. There are a few things you can try to make things better for you.

You could lower the speed of the lesson (use the button on the left of the play bar, the one that says 1x, which is normal speed).

You could manually pause the lesson.

You could practice repeating the sentences using the voice recorder tool (if you're not on the app). It's the microphone icon on the left of each sentence. You can listen to each sentence individually and record yourself repeating it, to compare your pronunciation.

Hope this helps!

Look, this appears to be a theme in many of the Italian Pod 101 sessions; there isn't enough time given to say the word or phrase, in Italian before the voiceover comes and starts saying it a lightning speed. Can you please give more time for us to actually say the word/phrase before speaking over us?

It's getting really frustrating.

Hi Lassi,

That's because sometimes the best translation is not a literal one, so there may be some differences.

Please notice that "I think first and then ask" should be "Prima penso e poi chiedo.":thumbsup:

A presto e grazie!

Buon giorno!

Mi chiamo Lassi, piacere. (My name is Lassi, nice to meet you)

Credo che prima e poi chiedere. (I think first and then ask)

Ho una domanda: (I have a question)

Why "Puรฒ ripetere per favore?" is translated to "Can you repeat that please?"? Should there be "quello" somewhere? Grazie mille :smile:

Grazie per questa lezione. (Thank you for this lesson)

Mantenere il buon lavoro. :thumbsup: (Keep up the good work)

Arrivederci, a presto!

You try to balance both options.

i think i usually think if i can figure out what it means first and then i ask.

But sometimes i just say What did you say?
