    In SayWhat?, you listen to the dialogue from a video clip line by line. Where prompted, you’ll have to type in the missing word or expression.
    If you can’t type in the missing item correctly, you can listen to that part of the dialogue again, or skip to the next one.

    Your score is determined by the speed and accuracy of your answers.

    In Learning mode, the missing items are limited to the target vocabulary in a Video Booster. In Expert mode, any word in the dialogue can be the randomly withdrawn and you will be asked to replace it.
