Choose a simple lesson; This one, for example. A page like this will appear:
In case you didn’t notice the "start" button, it’s on the right. Click on it.
You will be presented with 5 key phrases, which you will have to translate aloud into Russian. Click CONTINUE.
You will see a screen with the first phrase to be translated and a big microphone button in the center of the screen.
Recall the key translation that you have done earlier, click the microphone, and say it aloud. You have to do this before the circular indicator completes a circle. You should see a waveform while speaking. This means the microphone is working properly.
As soon as the indicator completes a circle, recognition starts. This can take several seconds.
The recognition results will show in the input box. Words pronounced correctly will be highlighted in green, and words that have mistakes or inaccuracies in pronunciation will be highlighted in orange.
You are given 3 attempts for each phrase. Their results are shown by 3 little boxes under the microphone, which are marked with the appropriate color. Green means the phrase was translated and pronounced well; yellow means there are some questions about the words or pronunciation; red means there was a problem with recognition.
If after the first or second attempt the indicator is green, you can skip the remaining attempts and move on to the next phrase.
After translating all 5 phrases you will receive a calculation of your score.
Upon completion of a lesson, reflect on the key phrases’ translations. The main principle in language study is thoughtfulness and the ability to act out a dialog in your head.
