No problem :) I'm happy I could help you. I found not working ones also at another (since long time added) lesson groups, if once you have time try to check all of them or at least at the newly added lessons.

Hi Zolo,


Thank you for letting me know the sentences. I've deleted the audio files linked to each sentence. We'll record it soon so that you can hear the correct version soon.


Thanks again, and we're sorry for the inconvenience that you have.

Thank you for your answer, but could you please try these again? I'm really sure these are not working:


"Mango is a summer fruit."

"Thai people also love to eat pickled guava."

"The rind of mangosteen is purple but the flesh is white."

Hi Zolo,


I've checked the all English sentences under the Expansion with Audio, but I'm afraid that they worked fine for me. Could you see if it works fine on a different browser? Usually it can happen due to the cache saved temporally on the current browser.


Thank you,
