Question re: Audio Review

Hi Chinesepod,


I have a question please. I'm a pretty heavy user of the Audio review. When you're going between levels it's super-useful to be able to review the dialogue etc and the expansion sentences really help with your listening and comprehension when you come to read them. I'm a big fan. 

But, why has the format of the audio review changed with more modern lessons? The older lessons used to have the vocab mixed up and repeated a lot more in the second run-through ("let's try that faster!"), so you'd get the words 3 or 4 times, and the expansion sentences were also repeated a couple of times which makes recollection of words a lot more likely.

The modern audio reviews have changed to a much plainer read-through of the vocab, followed by a read-through of expansion sentences. There's no repetition - it's not as useful for helping memorise, basically. 

Can it go back to being the old way please?
