In this exercise, after listening to a phrase spoken in French, the student's task is to enter the phrase spoken to them. The tutor allows three tries at each item. On incorrect attempts, the tutor highlights the portions that are wrong. After each item in the lesson is viewed, the student gets the opportunity to retry the items answered incorrectly in the previous round. The student continues listening, spelling, and getting feedback until each item in the lesson is mastered (spelled correctly on the first try).
