I'm sure this gets asked a lot, but I just started using the exercises and I'm not sure how to type the answers into the dictation section.

Basically dictation is for learning the characters in the lesson. You should type Chinese characters. If you don't know how to do this on your computer, here are some instructions for changing your language input settings:

In Windows, go to:

Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages (tab) > Text Services and Input Languages Details > Add (add the Chinese pinyin input or input method of your choice for Chinese) > Choose a keyboard layout > Under Preferences, check your Language Bar settings to make sure it is visible.

The commands for toggling between languages can be found in Key Settings.

If you have further questions or problems don't hesitate to ask!
